Silver State Armory announced the production of three new 6.8 SPC loads: a plinking round, a tactical/law enforcement round and a specialized armor-piercing (AP) round. Â This collection of new 6.8 SPC rounds offers a broad range of options for different applications in a tactical situation.
The tactical round uses an 85 grain Barnes TSX bullet traveling at 3070 fps from a 16â€ barrel.Â When fired into 10% ballistic gelatin, the bullet has an impressive wound cavity in the first eight inches, and penetrates a total of 17.38â€.Â The recovered diameter of the bullet averaged 0.546â€. Â This performance is what a lot of people are looking for. Â Silver State Armory was unable to provide me with additional performance details, such as how it worked through auto glass, etc. Â Those tests are very relevant for what this cartridge was designed to do.
