Hornady - Hollow Point Boat Tail - 110 Grain 6.8 SPC Ammo - 200 Rounds
The AR platform has been in US service for over 50 years, and its success, despite several attempts to replace it lies almost exclusively in its modularity and versatility to purpose. The one detriment in al that time continues to be the perceived or factual drawbacks of the original .223 or 5.56mm cartridge. The 6.8mm Remington Special Purpose Cartridge was one effort to remedy that. Designed from the start to be used in an AR type magazine well, the 6.8 SPC was intended to couple the accuracy of the .223 with the terminal ballistics of the Soviet 7.62x39mm. The results were quite promising when tested in the field with Special Forces. However, the round doesn’t maintain its performance over long range, especially when fired from the current issue M4 carbines. Therefore, the US military has resisted widespread upgrading. The 110 hollow point boat tail cartridge from Hornady has a muzzle velocity of 2570 ft per second with 1613 foot pounds of energy. It is intended for competition or personal and civil defense.
