S&B 6.8 SPC 110gr plastic tip

Does anyone have any experience with this 6.8 load? It's a hunting round, brass cased, boxer primed, and they imply it's either a Sierra or Barnes bullet (I'm betting Sierra).

$175/200 seems to be a good price. I've shot S&B ammo before and had very good experiences with it in other calibers.

That seems a little high to me. You can get the Silver State pro-hunter for cheaper than that. I don't think anyone should spend more than $0.75 cents a round for 6.8.

.75 cents a round for 6.8.
Any recommendations of cheap 6.8 ammo retailers for those of us that will not be reloading for a while?

I haven't been on the 68forums in a while but I know there was talk of Silver State making a cheaper plinking ammo. You can also talk to jack a sol about his hunting shack group buy and see if they can make some cheap ammo for you.

aziator, where have you been buying your Silver State hunting ammo? It's over $20 a box/20 most every place I've found it.

Well, I buy the OTM but I called them directly and ordered it in bulk. They gave me a pretty good price but it may have been because I am military. Still, if you buy in bulk you can get it for as low as $18.60 a box of 20. Now that I look at the website their prices have increased a little since I last purchased. The group buy may be your best bet, that or get a few people to go in wth you and order lots.

Re: S&B 6.8 SPC 110gr plastic tip

In bulk SSA OTM is $18.60/20= $.93/rnd.

The S&B 6.8SPC with a Sierra tipped Prohunter bullet at Ammo2Go was $175/200= $.875/rnd

Maybe it's not that bad a price.

I've been trying to decide between the 6.5G and the 6.8SPC and I'm leaning more toward the 6.8 because of 6.5 ammo prices (and there seem to be only 2-3 mfgs).

I P/U my 6.8 a few months ago. I have been shopping for factory ammo often. The price of 6.8 at $.93/rnd is average. The price of $.875/rnd is good. If youcan find 6.8 at $.825/rnd or less it is a great price. I have not seen a great price in awhile so get some at a good price to hold you over.

Yeah, I guess it isn't so bad. I am grateful that I got mine at $0.60 a round and the brass at $34/100.

Any 6.8 shooters that don't reload?? I will buy your brass.

90gr varminter at SSA now for $14.95/20,
SSA is now loading 110gr Nosler Accubonds and will have 2 new bullets by spring. One of those will hit 3000fps from a 16" barrel.

Constructor, glad I looked at this post first, I was going to post the same thing.

Really not a bad deal for those looking to shoot 6.8 on somewhat of a budget.
