I shot my new 6.8 today using Silver state armory 6.8 matchking 115 grain. It was shortcycling badly. Has anyone else used any of this ammo with or without problems? Thanks, Tom

i have only cycled 10rnds through my dpms upper. i work at a 50ft range and did not want to waste all of them for such short target shooting. they cycled fine though. soon i will try them out past 100yrds.

do you have a rifle length gas system?

They work perfectly in all five of our current 6.8 mm weapons...

Thankyou for the replies. Mid length gas system. Turns out one of the gas rings got twisted up somehow. Tom

Sorry I've only used their TMJ round and it rocks!

A twisted gas ring will not be the cause of your problem. The rings rotate during cycling.

I have had no problems with it out of my bravo co. upper. Its faster than rem 6.8. I had it written down somewhere.

Our Match Kings are running at 53,500 PSI, with no reported problems on 100K rounds sold to date. Please let me know if your weapon is functioning with the gas ring correted.

Actually I replaced the gas ring and had exactly the same thing happen again. Short stroking and another mangled gas ring. Pulled a bolt carrier out of another rifle, put in the 6.8 bolt with another new gas ring. 2 magazines through it and it functioned flawlessly. So the ammunition worked great. Just had a bad carrier. Takes a little to track this stuff down sometimes. The carrier was a brand new young national match hard chrome. Have a CMT carrier on the way. I have had great success with these. Tom
