I haven't shot my 6.8 since slapping together a couple 224V's. Just really like the caliber. Have a perfect record on hogs, deer and axis deer so far. Maybe it's just me because I like something different than the norm but it has that X factor that works well. And i do like the 18" over the 20" for accuracy shooting 90 gr Federal Fusions.
If you don't have one you should get one. If you have one you should get another. smile

Thanks.

Do you run 556/223 mags for it?

That cartridge will really do a number on a hog!

You need to use 6.8 mags in it! So now I have to make sure I have my mags clearly marked for 224V and 6.8 with paint marker or ticker tape printer thing we have.
