    AR15 in 6.8mm

    Just curious who has an AR15 chambered in 6.8? How does it compare to the 5.56 versions in all aspects, accuracy, recoil, reliability, etc. What are the pros/cons? Are there any less expensive yet reliable options out there for a 6.8 AR? Thanks for the help!

    I have a 6.8 T/C, check out the 6.5 Grendel before making a decision.

    6.8 ballisticly is as crappy as AK ammo.

    accuracy and wind drift is better with the 77gr smk 223

    6.5 is a far superior round 400 to 800+ yards, but it dont have the big $ backing of Barret and Rem.

    The Barret 6.8 piston gun made it through a 1500 round class of cold, mud and high volume drills while being treated like crap by the Barret crew who took the class last month.

    It's a great weapon, and it ran great from what I was able to see when I wasn't shivering, shooting or reloading.

    Buy one. You will like it.
