Default Combat Scenario: ACR or M6A2 (6.8 SPC)?

In a purely combat scenario, would you want to be running the Remington ACR or the LWRC M6A2? I'm assuming 6.8 SPC would be the preferred cartridge for stopping bad guys. Price/availability are irrelevant. Here's the pros of both:

ACR
Melonite coating on the barrels
Self-regulating short-stroke gas piston system
Folding stock, adjustable cheek piece
Interchangeable barrels/calibers in a matter of minutes
website: Remington Defense

M6A2
NiCor coating on the barrels
Self-regulating short-stroke gas piston system
Nickel coating on the internals
Cerakote finish
website: LWRC International LLC - M6A2

P.S. Anyone know the difference between NiCor and Melonite?

Henry,
Just so you know Bushmaster has a total recall on all ACR Rifles at this time. Advising discontinue use until they are contacted. Bushmaster is in charge of commercial sales and Remington has Govt. & Law Enforcement Sales for the Freedom Group who owns both companies. I am not saying they are a bad product but check it out before yous spend the cash. Do not know where they are going with this at this time. For your information only

I stand corrected due to my typo Remington had Gov and Military. Bushy has commercial and LE.
