is the head on the 6.8 SPC turned down to be used in a 5.56 bolt face or will you have to change the bolt in the ar-15... Looking to build a 6.8SPC rifle...

Barrel, bolt and mags are what you need. The boltface is larger. Just finished building mine last week. Now that the ban is dead I ordered 4 previously LEO-Miliary restricted mags from PRI today. Expensive but can have them now.

Bolt & barrel from Model "1". I got the 20". It is Hbar config. I don't know if they have updated to show the bolt on the website yet but they have them. Cost me $75 for the bolt. Expensive but what the hell. If you want something new & different you pay for it. Graf & sons has/had brass. Ammo can't say for sure. Stuff for this cartridge is still spotty. Dies are fairly available try Midway USA if you need them. PRI has mags but they are expensive. $37 I think it was for previously restricted 25 rd. mags. If you want to try cheaper mags that may or may not work try Triple-K 20 7.62x39 mags. They supposedly work well. I ordered some of these last week to try & ordered 2-25 & 2-18 rd. mags from PRI today. See what happens.

Edit: Model "1" also has kits and uppers in 6.8 for sale for good prices if interested.

May be a week or so. Still waiting on brass and mags. If you want more info check out this thread.


Zak has done a lot of work on this cartridge already. A few others are joining in lately. Good info on this round.
