I'm really interested in the 6.5x6.8. I think you posted about using Redding bushing dies to load this caliber. Could you please either link to your original post or explain the process or needed dies/bushings for this.
Does the barrel come headspaced or is that up to me requiring me to have a reamer onhand?
Here is the family history: http://www.ar15armor...-bhw-68-family/
To load: Take one 6.8 MM Remington SPC Redding Type S Full Lenght Busihng die Part # 77259 . One Redding or Wilson, I prefer Wilson, bushing 287 or 288 depending on brass with 287 the best all around choice if you use FC brass or 288 of you use the other brands, Rub a little Imperial on on the case it run it up in the die after setting the shoulders and Walla you are GTG. I use a Hornady seating die for the chore of bulet placement.
Barrels come just like any AR rig. Build the upper, stick a boltt in them and there will be no head space issues. We measured three barrels done with this reamer, one Savage and two AR's and they did not vary 0.001 in head space on the shoulder. The remaers for the entire family were made by PT&G and cost right on $160.00each.
This is no harder toload than any bottle necked case out there except you don't need expansdrer buttons and can control neck tension with the buishings. I just made up 22, 24,25 6.5 and 6.8 cases with the same die swapping out bushings as I sizex smaller and samller. I ruined exactly one case out of 250 because I got a tad agressive with that one.LOL
ANY questioons or help that anyone on here has or needs will get my attention and assistance. This one will out run the Grendel and I believe that as a deer cartidge it wil be flat amazing.
