    look up hdfireman of blackstone arms on the site. He builds 6.8 uppers with MOA accuracy. He took my calls and gladly explained the components he used and why. So I bought one from him. Just needing a scope and then I will be at the range.

    If you are old enough for a 223, you are old enough for a 6.8!

    i tend to find the volume of recovered hogs with 556 is on par with the talent level of the shooter....that's why i use 308 it makes me look good ;) great shootin kid keep after em when you graduate to 68 they don't stand a chance!

    Yep, 556 will do it, if you want to take pictures, shoot them twice
