New 6.8 SPC

Got my upper back in the mail yesterday! 1-11" twist Douglas chambered in 6.8 SPC. Anyone have any good loads for it? I'm starting from scratch...never loaded for a 6.8 before.

    While I personally don't use my 6.8 for long range, it is an awesome deer/hog gun here in TX. I PMed you a link which will provide you with a lot of reloading data.

    Finally a scope that cost more than the rifle that's how its supposed to be. Nice rig how far you going to try and push it?

    Thanks! Well to be honest that scope isn't going to stay on it...it just looked really nice I ordered a NXS 2.5-10 with a velocity reticle (they called yesterday and it's here!!!) As far as how far I'm going to try to push it...as far as possible of course!!! Haha. The velocity reticle goes to 600 so we'll see

    Nice stick! Checkout 6.8 Forums, there's a ton of loading info. (there's a good deal of BS there too, be warned)
