Silver State Armory - Hollow Point - 115 Grain 6.8 SPC Ammo - 20 Rounds
The 6.8mm Special Purpose Carbine cartridge was developed to address what were seen as the terminal ballistic deficiencies of the 5.56 NATO cartridge while maintaining the AR15/M16 platform for the US military: all that is required is trading out the upper receiver. It approaches the levels brought by the Soviet 7.62x39mm round while maintaining the accuracy levels of the AR parent system. Though it was not adopted for full replacement of the NATO cartridge, it is utilized by several special forces organizations. On the civilian market it has been embraced by many private sportsmen looking to increase the potency of their AR rifle for the hunting of deer. The 115 grain hollow point bullet by Silver State Armory has a muzzle velocity of 2575 feet per second with 1694 foot pounds of energy. This is a cartridge meant for competitive shooting but also hunting and civil defense.
Silver State Armory ammunition is made in Nevada and remains one of the few manufacturers of the Special Purpose Carbine cartridge. SSA uses state of the art technology for reloadable brass cases and loaded with Nosler Accubond bullets for premium performance at the range but also especially in the field.
