    My 6.8 does not like this ammo at all so I am selling my cases.

    120 grain Hornady SST- 2 200 round cases. Asking $250 a case.

    Located in Boerne. Prefer face to face transaction.

    TIA

    I'm running a Noveske GenII upper with a 16" barrel.

    This upper loves anything less than 100 gr. Accubond, TTSX and Gold Dot all shoot lights out.

    Anything heavier than that shoots like a shotgun. For some reason it hates the heavy pills.

    Well Noveske stopped making 6.8 for a while, I guess they don't have their GenII twist right yet as the original seemed to run OK be sure to inform them. OK I see they have a 1-12 twist rate now, I wounder if others are having the same issue? I am a big *** fan and never have that problem. Good luck

    My upper has a 1-12 twist. Not sure if others have this issue.

    I've even thought about selling the upper. Not sure if I'm ready to do that quite yet though.

    I believe you can use those very effective rds should you desire to go *** on the barrel..I am sorta glad you brought this up here, I think I will look around and see if I can find other mentions

    4"+ groups consistently.

    GD, TTSX and Accubond are all shooting sub moa.

    I think this barrel just does not like the heavier rounds.

    yeah I think that is due to the 1-12 twist most likely

    I have a 10 twist and a 11 twist gun. Both will shoot that bullet,if handloaded,and the Hornady loaded ammo,great.
    I just prefer a lighter bullet at higher velocity. As stated above,these bullets are a great killer of both hogs and deer.
    Best of luck with your sale sir. ---pruhdlr
