Default 6.8 upper or rifle

I want to move to a 6.8 and use for hog hunting. If I wanted to replace upper which one is best? Or should I just but the rifle? My lower is Daniels defence. As always thanks for the feed back.

Take a look at AR15Performance.com then give him a call monday. He'll shoot straight w/ you and his products are great.

Id say get the upper than gradually build a lower for it.

DPMS 6.8 upper has proven to be reliable as well as CMMG in my experience
with Silver State ammo
