AR Performance as a manufacturer is committed to providing the best possible accuracy, velocity and long life by redesigning chambers and using new high performance hybrid 5R rifling in Melonite treated 4150 CMV barrels in addition to using better quality mil spec products and assembly procedures while giving our Govt. and civilian customers the most bang for the buck.
The 6.8X43 was developed as an improved CQB cartridge by the 5th Group Special Forces, it is now very popular with hog hunters because of the devastating performance combined with the AR15 platform.
It has apx 80% of the performance of the 308 in a much lighter platform.
We have designed a 5 groove hybrid rifling similar to 5R with a low land to groove ratio to increase the bore area and lessen bullet deformation which leads to better accuracy, we have found that our 5R Melonite QPQ barrels consistently produce 60-90fps more than most SPCII 10 and 11 twist 4 groove barrels with the same loads. Hornady's 110gr HPBTs reach 2600fps from our 16" barrels and normally shoot under 3/4" groups at 100yds, with better shooters groups are 1/2" so they shoot better than some high dollar stainless barrels and most match grade 5.56s . Hornady's 120gr SST works very well on deer and hogs. With handloads it is possible to push a 100gr Nosler to 3000fps from a 16" barrel, nothing else with a 16" barrels comes close to the performance of a 6.8. The Melonite(QPQ) treated barrels we sell will last twice as long as stainless barrels and the final finish meets or exceeds stainless steel corrosion resistance.
The 6.8SPCII and 6.8x43 use the same ammo including SSAs Tac loads and Wilson Combats ammo
uses the same size dies, only the throat in the chamber is different.
The 264LBC barrels we sell are capable of great accuracy. This target was the first group shot with Hornady factory 6.5Grendel 123gr Amax ammo at 100 yds. It is apx 3/8-7/16" center to center.
A 6mm BR is in the works, it may be the most versatile
