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 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.
