    it's go 6.8 SPC, It seems to me like it's becoming the more popular "non-nato AR round"

    I'd be building a 6.8 if it weren't so damn expensive.

    the main thing u want to look for when getting a 6.8 SPC is get a barrel thats Spec II with a 1:11 twist or slower or a barrel marked 6.8x43. either one of these have updated specs and will allow u to be able to shoot hotter loads with less pressure in the chamber
