    WTB 6.8 SPC brass or ammo

    Anyone got some surplus lying around?

    Will also be keen on dies.

    Cheers

    I bought a bunch from Reloading international, only downside is that you need to buy $400NZ (skip GST) worth of brass and projectiles for it to be cost effective.

    I love my 6.8SPC AR15, nailed a few deer and its super accurate. I'm running 90gr TNT and 110gr prohunter? (I think)

    What sort of price did it work out for 100?

    Yeah I Think 6.8 is well ahead of 300blk for hunting purposes.

    This is my first ar so looking forward to getting it

    Oh man for sure, the .300 is pretty underwhelming

    would be good as a range gun or if you want to go subsonic ect. I just cant see it being very effective for hunting but hey thats just looking at numbers, not real world

    cheers mate, how much was the price at wilhelms??

    Think i will just get dies from reloaders, they are $99 so a bit pricey but cant be bothered waiting from brownells.

    6.8SPC was my first reloading attempt ever. I reload for my mini 14. I got brass by using factory ammo first. I thought wasn't to bad price wise.
    Dies I got from reloaders along with rest of gear. Modified case I got from eBay..
    The mini ain't at all the most accurate firearm I've used but I cleaned up 3 pigs quick smart without emptying the 5 shot mag. In the process of building an AR15 in this cal bought from stag arms. The mini is going into retirement and am looking forward to the new results but like this round lots
