Any suggestions on which is most preferable? I.e. ammo availability, price, durability, and reliability?
6.8spc: Good round, but struggling to remain relevant due to the emergence of 300blk. This is a pretty expensive round to shoot. And while I like it, 300blk seems a lot more practical, versatile, and easier on the wallet. This is almost exclusively a so-called "assault rifle" round...so any future bans (however unlikely) could make supporting parts and ammo extremely scarce.Any suggestions on which is most preferable? I.e. ammo availability, price, durability, and reliability?
The 6.8 SPC was designed as a happy medium between the .223(5.56) & .308(7.62). the 6.8 gives you a better effective range than the 5.56. At 500 yds the 6.8 has 2.86x the energy that the 5.56 has.I have seen a few rifles under the ar platform that are chambered for the .300 blackout? Is the 6.8 more equivalent to a .308 round or a.223?
now that is freakin' awesome. I wonder what the felt recoil is like on that? For long range shooting, big game hunting, knock your *** down power.... that'll do it! I want one!
