Is 6.8 ammo stocked in stores near you? If it's not stocked locally for you, have you asked any stores to carry it?

I can't seem to find any near me in west TX. I saw some in central Arkansas. I emailed Academy Sports asking them to stock it. I don't expect them to, but maybe if they get more than 1 request, they might take notice. Just a thought. Even though it's simple enough to call up SSA directly, I think locally available ammo might help grow its popularity.

Re: 6.8 stocked in stores

my local privately owned gun store stocks 6.8 with SSA, Hornady, and I think they had a couple of others too. Gander Mountain and Dicks sporting Goods doesnt stock it near me. I refuse to do business with Dicks sporting goods anymore, and Gander mountain is a lot forther from my house than the small gun store.

I wish they would, but at a reasonable price. I asked them to check out what they would sell the SSA loads for. They came back and said $29/20 rds. I said "fella, while I prefer to support my local shop, that is just insane. I'll continue to mailorder my ammo."

But this is a FUDD shop, nary a EBR to be found there.

Nope, hardly any AR's from what I have found also. But the gun store I deal with loves ordering stuff for me.

Ammo I buy online.

The two stores I frequent actively carry Hornady VMAX for about $20/box. One store carries a couple of REM loads and had DoubleTap (although I haven't seen it there lately). I asked my local shop to bring in BTHP, but they say they keep getting BO'd on them...

Go to SSA web site, upper right hand corner. If you get your local dealer to buy from SSA you will recieve a reward. We will give your local dealer a good prive to carry our rounds.

The Gander Mountain in Sherman, TX where I often purchase a box or two if I'm in quick need carries Hornady VMax 6.8 SPC. They usually have 7 or 8 boxes on the shelf and that's it, but it's always there.

I submitted my two "local" (non-chain) gunshops already. I'd like to see them give you a try. I'll be sure to encourage them next time I'm in.

Done! Neat program. Good luck--Hope one of my dealers start carrying SSA.

ETA: Just added another couple. One of them had better order...
