Ok, I've got one you've NEVER HEARD BEFORE! I'm new to the AR platform. I want to build my own AR15. After scouring magazines, subscribing to all the forums, talking to my local gun store guys, and of course, watching Mac on Future Weapons, I'm not that much closer to AR enlightenment. The things I know for sure are...
1) .223 has always seemed under powered to me
2) .308 seems excessive for most of what I'll be doing (targets and plinking)
3) I grew up shooting a Ruger M77 .270 and getting sub MOA groups
4) I'd better make up my mind and get something before its too late
So, I think I like the 6.8 SPC. I think I'll probably HAVE to get into reloading now or go broke buying the ammo. I also think the piston system (ala LWRC) looks like the way to go. Is it possible to utilize the cleaner piston system with a free floating barrel? Who is making the best barrels? What are the proper number of lands and rifling to maximize this cartridge? Should I just buy the whole darn gun, and if so, REC7, H&K 416, LWRC? (Who else does gas piston?)
Thanks for helping to educate a new guy
