6.8 SPC Ammo

6.8 SPC Ammo Details & Background

Designed for military use in AR-15 pattern rifles, 6.8mm Remington SPC ammo excels at a variety of roles ranging from urban combat to deer hunting with the appropriate bullets. AR-15s can be converted to fire 6.8mm Remington SPC ammo by changing the upper receiver and the magazine.

A typical round of 6.8 SPC ammo fires a 115-120 grain bullet at about 2,500 feet per second. While this configuration results in trajectories that are not as flat as those of the AR-15/M-16's default 5.56 NATO, it also delivers better close-range performance thanks to the increased weight and higher caliber of the projectile.

Ammunition in 6.8 SPC is made by a variety of manufacturers including Federal, Remington, Hornady, and Sellier & Bellot. Soft point loads are available for those seeking to use their rifles for sporting purposes; this cartridge fares better than the .223/5.56 against many types of midsize game due to its greater power.
