    Are you looking to load/reload your own ammo, or buy?

    P.S. - Good choice on the 6.8mm spc I LOVE mine!

    Dont' have one but it's specs look outstanding! The AR in .223 doesn't really do anything for me but now the 6.8... that'd be something.

    I thought about the 6.8 Ruger Mini...until I saw the prices for the ammo!

    I think the .223 will do just fine!

    Any that you can find. 6.8 ammo is hard to get.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    That does look like a great package balistically.

    Yep! 6.8mm SPC is a ballistic wonder-round no doubt. So was the .218 Mashburn Bee. Anyone seen any ammo lately?

    Sounds like a handloaders caliber.....if you can find the brass!!! Can the 6.8 SPC be necked down or up from another case??
