New Build 6.8 AR

I am just about finnished a 6.8 AR. Just waitng for a Magpul PRS stock. It has a White Oak stainless match grade 1/11 twist barrel with a mid length gas tube. The upper is a left hand Stag Arms receiver on a Stag Arms lower. The front grip is a free float 4 rail Yankee Hill lightweight assembly. Has any one come up with an accurate load for 115gr bullets? I want to try a couple of different powder combinations to find what is best for this system. I am having trouble finding current information on the web.

    Home of the 6.8 SPC - 68forums.com - Powered by vBulletin

    115 is about the top bullet weight most guys are using, simply due to OAL and powder capacity.

    Here's some threads with 115 data.

    Good luck.

    Here is some data for 110 grain bullets which in my opinion are better. I shoot the 110 Vmax in my LWRC 6.8 exclusively with H322.
