I had some 6X6.8 groups sent to me last week.  These were initial early load work ups that show some promise at three weights. All usable bullets in my area here in Arizona.

I don't recall the specifics on the barrel but I'm sure it might be obtained if the shooter chimes in.

What do you need die-wise to load 6x6.8 and what are the best applications for this caliber? Currently building a rifle for my dad and have sorta settled on 6.8spc but I have not yet ordered a barrel so I still have plenty of options.

The 6X6.8 is by far one of the easiest high performance rounds you can load.  It's no harder than the 6X45 and we know that is a piece of cake. Load data abounds with an e-mail.

 

I can even hook you up with the guy that did 99% of the design work.

I would be interested in just purchasing a package with all the necessary dies as well as load data and a basic guide.

I had zero rifle loading time when I started on my wildcat.

I am thinking hard on 6x6.8 for myself, but for my dads rifle I am still thinking 6.8spc because I still want him to be able to buy factory ammo if he needs to.

If you wish to stay factory the a regular .8 is the best way IMHO or a Grendel.

 

I'm sure I could walk you through on parts numbers if you decide to go this way. No one is stocking all the parts as these are custom made on order.
