I've decided to convert one of my AR-15's to 6.8 spc. Not having any experience with this caliber I'm asking for input on barrel and bolt assy's. First of all I am not a "brand" seeker, just what works and worth the money. I appricate any and all info. Thank you.

Bison Armory gets my vote. Have built 2 with their barrels and BCG's.

I second the AR Performance barrel. Below is a pic of a 5 shot group I shot with factory Hornady 110 Vmax. The barrel is an 18" ARP medium conture. Disregard my measurements as I incorrectly wrote down .243 and should have been .988 - .277 = .711

ARP Barrel link below.

ARP Barrels

Very good information on below forum.

ARP or Bison is what I came up with after shopping for awhile. I have a 16" ARP socom barrel and a box of parts. I just need a bolt and gas block and time to finish it up. ARP comes well reviewed and the price is quite fair.

Another thought on ARP that when you buy a barrel and bolt together, they will make sure it is head spaced properly. I really don't know what all is involved in this on an AR platform or how it affects accuracy but could be a good opportunity.

ARP barrel and superbolt is the way to go. It's what we use in all our uppers, they just shoot!!

The 6.8 is the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs in an AR15

Try White Oak Armament too. They're well known for accuracy.

I looked at White Oak, I have a 18" SS in my favorite AR 15. I really like their barrels but I'm thinking ARP 16" Scout for length and weight. I was thinking about one of their superbolts in the carrier for my 556.
