Greetings everyone. This is my first post and my introduction.

I started the black rifle adventure with a Bushmaster carbine in 5.56 then sold it to buy a DPMS 308. I went with the 308 since it was more powerful than the 5.56 and I thought I might hunt with it. But with a 16" barrel the 308 ballistics were the same as a 300 Savage. Plenty good for deer, but still a heavy carbine (10 pounds with 2-7x and SPR).

So here I am looking to buy my first 6.8SPC. Two years ago I never would have even considered the 6.8 since the 6.5 seemed like the way to go. I have now seen the light! The new chambers and twist rates have really put some legs into the 6.8.

I have a 6920 for plinking, but would like a 6.8 for medium range targets and hunting if I draw a good rifle tag. The 6.8 seems ideal for these purposes and much better than the AR10/LR308.
