Well its my first post. I just started tossing around the idea of putting together a 6.8 rifle. I have plenty of things in .556 and I dont know why I never thought about the 6.8 before a couple days ago. So far I am impressed enough to make it my next project. Just going to take a few weeks reading up and asking questions before I decide on what make and set up is best for me.
I noticed that most of the pics here feature rifles with optics other then the eotech/aimpoint red dot types. What distances are you guys shooting typicaly?
Also, are you running the same buffers and buffer springs as the .556 guns?

No dumb questions here, ask away!

As to the buffer, I use a standard rifle buffer.

I shoot out to 300 yards with mine. If I had a longer range, I would shoot further out.

Most guys that have the 6.8 use it for hunting so a scope is the better optic. If you are only shooting out to 100 yard, then a red dot makes sense.

Buffers are the same as the 5.56. For the rifle, I just use the standard rifle buffer. For a carbine stock, I like the H-buffer, but the standard buffer will work fine.

As far as uppers go, Ko-Tonics is the way to go. The uppers are affordable and have the best chamber and twist.
