Description
 
Designed to bridge the gap between the 5.56 NATO round and the 7.62mm AK round, the 6.8 SPC began the design phase in 2002. Remington Arms took the lead, along with members from both the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and the U.S. Special Operations Command. Its focus was replacing the 5.56 for use in short barreled rifles and carbines.

Members of the armed forces showed concern over the 5.56’s terminal performance and hoped the new round would address those concerns. The deciding factors used by MSG Steve Holland and Army Gunsmith Chris Murray were the rounds ability to offer a minimal loss to magazine capacity with only a marginal increase in recoil. That’s why they started with the .30 Remington Case.

This case, once fit to length, would be accommodated by the magazines currently in us with the m16 service rifles. The group then, through testing, found that the 6.5mm caliber bullet offered the best accuracy and penetration abilities, but the 7mm offered the best terminal performance. The resulting round was dubbed the 6.8 Remington Special Purpose Cartridge, or 6.8 REM SPC.

Converting between the 5.56 chambering and the 6.8 REM SPC if as simple as a barrel, bolt, magazine, and muzzle replacement. However, many companies have begun offering a complete upper kit for the 6.8 REM SPC alongside its 5.56 counterpart.


Each box contains 100 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.

It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
