New to this caliber, just got a 6.8 upper for my AR15,18" 1 in 11 twist.
Took her out last weekend, shot Hornady and Sellor-Beloit factory loads for starters getting about 2630/2670 fps. from both 110gr. offerings ( Sellor-Beloit were a bit faster).
For my first attempt at reloads I loaded up 5 110gr. Nosler Accubonds with new starline brass, CCI small mag primers and 28.2 gr. of Accurate 2200 powder. Since I had to zero in the scope I was on the fifty yard range but all 5 rounds printed a 1/2" group at 2570 fps, boy was I happy since neither factory rounds made a group that small.
