Hornady - Hollow Point Boat Tail - 110 Grain 6.8 SPC Ammo - 200 Rounds
6.8 SPC’s history as an ammunition cartridge goes back to the early 2000’s and the military.
In 2004 the United States military experienced a concern over the terminal ballistic capabilities of the standard issue M4 carbine at close to medium ranges. This inspired the development of several alternative calibers that could be chambered in an alternative AR platform upper and still feed off of AR Magazines with a minimum of alterations. One of the most successful was the 6.8 Remington Special Purpose Carbine ammunition, which delivers very similar performance to the 7.62x39 Russian cartridge, but with the expected accuracy of the AR rifle system. Although it never was adopted for complete adoption throughout the military, it nevertheless won over more than a few Special Forces teams for use on specific missions.
The hollow point, boat tail bullet loaded in this 6.8 SPC ammo by Hornady has a muzzle velocity of approximately 2500 feet per second with 1525 foot pounds of energy. This is a good round for target practice, range training and competitions.
Since the 1960’s Hornady has been a top name in performance ammunition manufacture. Their components are sold separately and highly valued by custom handloaders for the dependability and quality. As a maker of complete cartridges, shooters can expect to get custom load results on each and every shot, at the range or in the field.
