Hornady - Hollow Point Boat Tail - 110 Grain 6.8 SPC Ammo - 20 Rounds
6.8 Special Purpose Carbine ammunition was developed in 2003 in an effort by the U.S. military to make the general issue M4 carbine a bit more effective in delivering immediate terminal results in the field. The cartridge is able to duplicate most of the effects of a 7.62x39 round with the requirements of simply swapping out the upper receiver of any AR style platform. Despite this, the military opted against a widespread adoption of the caliber. Yet many Special Forces adopt the cartridge for their own use and the commercial market has embraced the round as well as it essentially turns an AR rifle into a self-loading .30-30 equivalent hunting carbine (where allowed by law). The 110 grain hollow point, boat tailed round by Hornady has a muzzle velocity in excess of 2500 feet per second with 1525 foot pounds of energy. This is a superb sporting cartridge for target shooting or civil defense.
Professional shooters resort to Hornady because to them, there is no substitution for success in the field. Having been a performance ammo maker since the 1960’s, even their components are recognized by custom handloaders as being among the best available on the commercial market. Choosing anything else is simply taking on an unnecessary risk.
