Hi All,
I'm new to ARs. Thinking about a 6.8SPC. I've seen a few posts on this board to stay away from these :

Why?

Model 1 uppers are not the top of the line and can have many problems. 6.8SPC is a new round that may or may not be adopted by militaries in the future. If this is a first AR you would be better off going with 5.56 because it is proven and will be around in quantity for some time. 6.8 may just be a flash in the pan that will never amount to any thing. If you buy 6.8 now it might not be around in the future. Stay with the safe bet.

I too think you should start with 5.56 as there is more experience with that round, mags are cheaper, and so is ammo.

If you want a 6.8 upper to go with your Fun/Deadly 5.56 then just get two uppers.


God knows when BRD kicks in you will have several lowers to go with your uppers.

When the cost of 6.8 comes down to near the price of 5.56 is when I will buy
