    I'd get the 6.8 for deer hunting.

    That is what I did. Be sure to get the SPC II chamber, or a line on a chamber reamer.

    I have reamer I need to rent out so I can recoup my investment. ;)

    I try to buy every box of Hornady Custom 120 grain SST's I can find.

    I have yet to take up hand loading.

    Silver State Armory is good 6.8 ammo also, but I prefer the SST bullet.

    If you go with 6.8spc I recommend ssa ammo I use the 85g Barnes stx I think. But it'd best to load your own if you can.
    I'm in the process of building a 300blk right now. Brass is well more abundance for reloading. 6.8spc ammo get pretty pricey. Just my .02

    Hunting ammo for my 6.8 is on par in cost with my .308, I shoot Hornady Custom SST's in both calibers.

    I'll stick with a 5.56/.223 for extended range time /trigger therapy sessions. Or my Mossberg 715t.

    6.8 man. I have had mine for two years and am absolutely in love with it. I even stopped hunting with my Remington 700 LTR all together. Its a devastating round. I also have a 300 BO, great round for running suppressed and will do some damage inside 200 yds.
