Nitride Treated:Read about this process being better than Chrome lined bores
The 6.8 SPC round has the same energy at 250 yards as the M855 (5.56 GREEN TIP) has at the muzzle. At 600 yards it has the same energy as a 7.62mm M43 at 275 yards, M193 at 250 yards and M855 at 375 yards. Since the 6.8mm is of a larger calibre and greater sectional density than the 5.56mm, it will use this energy more effectively when producing terminal damage. Performance can be increased slightly by using 110gr ammunition, giving you more velocity and less bullet drop over range.
The lower velocity of the 115gr ammunition combined with more kinetic energy makes this round less susceptible to deflection from soft cover such as foliage, shooting through glass (in the case of vehicle interdictions) and chest rigs.
6.8mm upper receivers will fit AR lowers, but you will need to change the bolt though and use specific 6.8 mags. You can try regular pmags.. but the tolerances inside the 5.56 mag are quite tight because the 6.8 cartridge is bigger in diameter. Although the calibre is larger, the difference in recoil is hardly evident and is quite controllable when engaged in rapid fire.
Our Socomm 6.8SPC Barrel is capable of 1/2"-3/4" MOA 5 shot group at 325 Yards. This means all 5 shots will be touching.
