Looking for a 6.8 upper, preferably an SBR upper...don't want to spend a ton. Where's the best place online?

Also, what's the best ammo for hogs and pigs out of a SBR upper?

Thanks

ARP barrel and bolt
Whatever brand upper receiver you like, handgaurd you like

Rifle gear in Plano just built mine for a very reasonable price with quick turnaround. They had all the small parts

AR performance has good stuff. AR15part.com is local to DFW and has SBR and rifle length uppers. I've purchased a few from them with no problems.

I'd prefer it to be complete...I'm too lazy to shop around for everything and I'm impatient, Lol.

I used Palmetto State, there is also Radical Firearms, Aero Precision.

Can't go wrong with Hornady 120 sst.

Check out 68 forums, lots of info.

Eric at Blackstone Arms or HDFireman on here.

He uses ARP barrels and their Superbolt 214*945*5520

I love mine!


Most guys are looking for speed from a SBR so 95 grains Barnes TSX will be the primo round for that rifle for hogs. My 16 inch barrel is going to be using 120 GR Hornady SST for hogs

x2

I'm using the 95 gr Barnes with a Blackstone 12.5", but really like how the Fusion 115s shoot as well.

So far I've looked at:

Radical--8 weeks ship time
Aero--None
Blackstone--more than I want to spend
Hardened--best price but don't have a 12.5"
PSA--None
Surplus Arms and Ammo--16" only
JoeBobs--None

Guess I may go with Hardened Arms and have the barrel cut down unless anyone has any other ideas...

I bought a complete Olympic Arms 6.8 w/16" Bull Barrel from Buds a couple months ago. Finally took it to the range for the first time last weekend and after sighting in put 5 shots within 1", 3 shots in the same hole. Paid $720 and could not be happier, my buddy was at the range with me with his $3000 SCAR and I was outshooting him. Needless to say he and I were impressed.

I like the Federal Fusion 115gr too. They shoot well in my 16" Rock River and IMO are a better version of a Corelokt bullet, good expansion and performance.

Love my 12.5" arp barrelled sbr. I get 2405 fps using factor hornady 120 sst and 2740 fps using the federal 6.8xm, which is now the fusion 90 grain ammo they came out with. Stocked up nicely when palmetto had it for 9.99 a box! The fusion 115 grain i get 2440 fps. All three of these rounds shoot nice little groups. All have been tested to mushroom down to about 1600 fps by xman on http://68forums.com/forums/forum.php . Hornady may be coming out with a superformance 6.8 round and a eldx bullet specifically for the 6.8. We should know by the end of this month when hornady releases the list. I was told, well kind of had a hint thrown to me by a customer service person at Hornady.

Sorry that my lowers are more than you want to spend but know that I use quality parts(ARP barrels and Superbolts), square the receiver and a few little extra steps. I also guarantee 1 MOA on the 16"+ uppers and will say that the 12.5" uppers that I've built are shooting that as well.

I didn't spend much less than that for my RRA. Given the components used, those are a good deal.
