What weight would you want it to be? I'm having a hard time deciding what is/would be the ideal bullet weight for the 6.8... 100? 105? 110? 115? What do you all think?

95-105 pushing around 2900 fps would be a good balance....

Yea... It seems like a 100gr. going around 2800-2900 would be ideal...Ok so before I get my hopes up, with my Shilen blanked WOA 18" SPCII 1:11 4-groove barrel, am I going to be able to reload 100gr. bullets to achieve that velocity range safely? Or is that going to be pushing it and unsafe to run (or burn my barrel out too quickly?) as my normal do all round?

On the other note... About the American Eagle FMJ-BT round, Federal's customer support said they only add cartridges to their offering if, of course, there is a big enough market for it... I would love to be able to go buy some AE 100gr. FMJ-BT at around $13-15 a box...
