Yes i have two one AR15 and a contender carbine.
Love the 6.8 use the AR as my coyote gun also killed a deer with the contender last year.
I been reloading for the 6.8 for about five years .
If I can get the funds together my plan is a 12.5" 6.8 upper . Figure that won't be too bad for carrying around.
ok which one of ya did i see last year zeroing it at douglas?
That could be me.
did you have yours in the rack waiting to be bore sighted when that wannabe hunter staring at it said " i don't see the point in owning one of those"
Nope that wasn't me i just go there to shoot.
Good to hear of more 6.8 shooters out there.
Yeah, I got a Stag 5h. Thinking of just throwing a nice scope on there and using it to hunt.
I've got low powered scopes on mine 1.5X6 and 2X7 makes for a fast shooting coyote/deer gun.
What scopes are they? I was thinking the same thing, getting a 1.5x6 or what not.
The AR has a nikon 1.5X6X42 monarch gold This is a great scope.
The contender has a 2X7 bushnell 3200 great scope for the money but not in the same league as the nikon.
6.8 spc rocks , do you guys reload? where's the 6.8 club at?:thumbup:
Building a 6.8 for deer hunting.
BCM flat top Upper reciever
BCM Bolt Carrier
YHM Specter Length Customizable Free Float Forearm System
VLTOR Low profile gas block
AR Performance Bolt and XT 16" Barrel
American Spirit Arms lower w/DPMS parts kit
C Products 5 round magazines
Leupold Vari-x II scope
Steel scope rings
I will use it for deer and just deal with the dirty looks from some of the other hunters I'll run across.
Good to see others around using the platform.:thumbup:
I reload H322 is the best powder i've found, sierra 90 or 110gr bullets shoot great also speer 100gr TNT.
Good bullet choices.
I'm set up to reload. After I use up some of the 160 rnds of assorted bullet types I bought from Silver State Armory, I'll work up some loads. H322 and 10X seem to be the powders to go to. Got some Pro Hunters to test out when I get this thing together. Still got to get dies and a shell holder for 6.8. Only powders I have on hand now is H4895, IMR4895, and H335. I reload for an M14, Mdl99 in 300 Savage and an M1 Garand currently.
I just ordered a barrel and bolt from DPMS with 2 mags. Does anyone have some brass and dies for it for sale?
