Just ordered my first 6.8 upper, a RRA Car w/16 inch barrel. I have 4 other AR15 platforms along with a 458 SOCOM on the way. The 6.8 has intrigued me since first reading about it a year ago. The guys in my shooting group have various shades of 6.8 and like them very much. Joined to get some tried loading data..I am interested in shooting 130 gr SP bullets but am afraid I have the wrong twist and barrel length, after reading some forum input..May have to drop to 115. Anyway glad to be aboard and do work at a small gunshop here in Aberdeen, NC so if you need help let me know...ElDee

Welcome aboard, Sgt. If you use the Flat base 130 Gr. bullets, you will do OK out o the 16" barrel. YOu just have to load it up with H322, Re10X, X-Terminator, or H335.

Hey guys thanks for the replies..We bought some LTM items today, one being a 6.8 magazine, and I noticed they are much straighter than 5.56 mags is this due to the larger cases to allow better feeding?? Great tip on the flat base 130's it saved me money as I was going for the Sierra 130 BTSP bullet. Also I really enjoyed the tip on the signature, what a great way to show your stuff, thanks much..I'll keep posted the trials of a new 6.8...I think the 16" barrel is more to my age, getting to old for the long barrels, have a nice Colt HBar 20" target match, but enjoy the 16's..Thanks ElDee
