I have been using Hornady 6.8mm SPC 120gr SST Custom /20 Mfg# 8347 for 3 years now. Love em, but cant find em anymore like most things. Anyone recommend another bullet or where these are stockpiled? LOL. Ive got about 3 boxes left.

TIA

I have been using 110 gr. Accubonds on hogs, with excellent results.

I really like the 90 grain Gold Dots. I understand the 90 grain Federal Fusion is basically the same bullet. I reload my own so I have no first hand experience with this Federal Ammo.

SSA 110 Accubonds here as well. If you time it right you can get them under $20 from Nosler at times.

I use the Fed Fusion 115gr, holds together very well. I found them for $13 a box last spring and bought a bunch.

I don't think you will find any 6.8 hunting ammo for a while. You have 3 boxes so you can kill 60 hogs and deer this year. laugh

I reload my own using 115gr and 90gr federal Gold Dots. They are available, now primers might be another story. Lucky for me I have plenty of powder primer and bullets
