Who out there shoots a 6.8 SPC? I've pig hunted several times with one and am impressed with the accuracy and performance it has. I'd love to see pictures of any 6.8 rigs out there you guys have.

These are my two. Both are a little different now as I finally got around to putting Magpul MOE stocks on both. The top one is my day rifle and the bottom is wearing a Flir PTS233 thermal for night work.

I use one to kill hogs, sorry I don't have any gun porn to share. You should get one or 6.5Grendel and help kill hogs.

I have been using them for almost 10 years
Great deer and pig gun out to say 300 yards though most of my use with them is within 200 due to our blind locations and the places where I could have 300 plus yard shots I grab a different rifle

For ammo, pretty much used every bullet and factory ammo out there and run the 120 SST Hornady factory ammo 99% of the time.

Day rifle after I first built it. I have reconfigured it so many times I have lost count but has shot well since day one.

I've got one but I don't have any good pics of the rig. I does like the Fed Fusion 115gr.

Wilson Combat shooting 120 Hornady SST.

A really nice platform weight wise when you consider how it puts the hammer on big hogs out to 300 yards.

I use mine mainly at night with an Apex XQ50. I'm gonna start using it more during deer season for spot and stalk with a new GPO 1-8 HD scope for day use.

I have a 6.8 I built probably 7 years ago I guess. At the time my primary rifle was a 300RUM and we had a pig explosion on our deer lease. I was looking for a more economical option to take out the hogs with and decided on the 6.8. Within in 2 years it became my primary rifle for everything within 300 yards and I have even stretched it past the 300 yard mark on a couple of occasions and was stunned with the performance. I don't think my 300RUM ever left the house last year and I never thought anything would ever pry that gun out of my hands much less the non-magnum puny little 6.8. It gets the job done and it does it very well!!! I have tons of pics with it over the years but the THF uploader hates my pics now unless I crop the heck out of them and I aint doing that.
