first of all what a great site! my question is ...I noticed almost all of you shoot the 6.8 out of ar type rifles. I was wondering what type of performance I can expect out of regular rifles? I have a t/c contender g2 with a 21" barrell. Also what type of ammo you had the most luck with? i live in upstate ny and my shots can be anywhere from 20 to 200 yds on whitetail (hav'nt had the opportunity to go on a hog hunt...looks like a blast!)

Silver State Armory makes the best ammo for the 6.8 and for whitetail their 110gr Sierra Pro Hunter load would probably be what your looking for.

I've got an M700 with a 20 inch barrel.

My hunting load is 29 grains of H322
with a 130 grain Nosler Solid Base bullet.
O.A.L. 2.451"

Chrono'd at 2560 fps.

This is a max load in my rifle.

If we could a only load to that COAL in an AR the 6.8 would be beyond belief. Very nice. With that load there should not be much you cannot take.
