Recently read a thread on a popular ar15 forum about how this 6.8 forum is dead. A lot of responses were that the 6.8 spc can’t compete with the 6.5 Grendel and it is fading away. The 6.8 ammo in my area is sold out. Not that there is much usually stocked anyway but a decent selection before this year’s panic. I have seen 200 round bulk plastic cases of Grendel at one store and a good selection of various 20 round boxes gathering dust everywhere I shop. Could just be it’s not popular here or the people that do shoot it roll their own. I find it laughable that people make blanket statements like that because of their opinion. The 6.8 isn’t going anywhere from where I sit. I have just finished my 6.8 build recently, just have to get the scope dialed in. No experience with the performance of the cartridge yet but everything I have learned on this forum tells me it will do what’s asked of it.
