Just curious to see what the 6.8 spc shooters are running out their rifles/SBR's?

Good, bad, ugly experiences?

I just put together a Bison Armory upper with an ER Shaw 1-11 twist 16" barrel. Looking for some insight as to what you're all putting downrange with your 6.8's. This is my 3rd AR build since i've gotten out of the military and first outside the 5.56 platform. Extremeley excited as i've got a very nice setup going and look forward to another year of 3 gun competition, but with a larger caliber.

Thanks gents.

The best place to ask this question, is the 68forum.com.

I have a 68, for deer 110 pro hunters, hogs 95 ttsx,or 120sst hornady's. the 110gr and 95ttsx are silver state armory.

I run the SSA 110PH and have been happy with the performance.

I bought a case of SAA 6.8 "seconds" and so far its been running great for me.

I've been saving all my brass like its gold plated so I can reload it when I run out.

I've been useing Silver State 110 Sierra Pros, which are very accurate in my LWRC.

SS is now selling a OTM round that looks quite promising as well.

You'll really like the 6.8. You know that twang sound when you fire a 556? Instead with the 6.8 mm you get a nice boom. It's a great round. I doubt if I'll ever buy another 556 AR. Why bother?

I don't shoot mine as much as I would like, but for plinking I mostly shoot the 90 gr TNT's, and then the Hornady 110 gr BTHP... all are my reloads...

I also have shot the 110 VMAX, and it shoots well in my barrel, others have reported mixed results...
