After a tremendous amount of research and testing by Bill Wilson and the Wilson Combat team, the company has come out with custom AR platform rifles chambered in 6.8 SPC caliber.
The 6.8 SPC (6.8x43mm) was developed by the United States Army Marksmanship Unit to offer superior downrange lethality over the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington in an AR pattern service rifle, with minimal loss of magazine capacity and a negligible increase in recoil.
Boasting outstanding accuracy and reliability, the 6.8 SPC is capable of pushing a .277 caliber, 85gr bullet to over 2900 FPS with their match-grade, Spec II chambered 16” barrels. Appropriate hand loading can achieve even higher velocities and enable the use of heavier projectiles up to 130 grains, dramatically improving terminal ballistics over a 5.56 Nato/.223 Remington at long range.
This added ballistic performance makes the 6.8 SPC perfect for home protection and SRT/SWAT teams. For more information and images, visit www.wilsoncombat.com/h_hog3.asp
