6.8 SPC Ammo
6.8mm Remington SPC ammo is designed to excel at urban combat with close range performance superior to that of the default 5.56 NATO chambering. The "SPC" in the name stands for "Special Purpose Cartridge".
Bullets fired by 6.8mm SPC cartridges are relatively heavy at 115-120 grains and produce a muzzle velocity of 2,510 feet per second. A lot of shooters who buy 6.8 SPC are firing an AR-15 rifle that has been converted to this caliber simply by swapping upper receivers and magazines.
You'll find 6.8 SPC ammunition for sale here that is produced by many American manufacturers including Federal, Remington, and Hornady as well as the Czech company Sellier & Bellot. Soft point bullets (notably Federal's Fusion hunting series) are available in addition to FMJs for range use. Czech ammunition producer Sellier & Bellot offers a polymer-tipped load designed for taking deer and other game and many hunters have relied on the 6.8 cartridge successfully for years.

The 6.8 Remington SPC is a new and highly innovative round. For this round, the US Army and Remington collaborated together in order to make a new round that had the power of the 7.62mm and the speed and versatility of the 5.56mm, coupled with the platform of the M series. It was a smashing success, and this new round flies straighter and farther than the 5.56mm, along with delivering more power upon impact. If you are looking to do some range shooting with this new, amazing round, pick up this 20 round box of 110 grain, full metal jacket ammunition and get to blasting!

The 6.8 Remington SPC was developed as a coalition of Remington and the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, United States Special Operations Command. Why was this done? The US Army was experimenting to see if they wanted to replace their current 5.56mm round with a 30 caliber round with features similar to both the 7.62mm and the 5.56mm. Is this round effective? You bet. Able to travel farther and flatter than the 5.56mm, this round is a great innovation. If you are looking at doing some range training or deer hunting with your tactical rifle, these polymer tipped spitzer rounds are perfect for you.
