Relaoding 6.8 SPC

I am having a hard time reloading my 6.8 SPC. Nosler says a Remington 9 1/2 primer is needed, but it doesn't fit in the primer pocket of the case. I am fairly new to reloading and I am really confused as to what primer I need to use. Can any one bring some for site on this problem I am having.


Thank you

Some 6.8 brass is small rifle primers and some is large rifle primers.

I don,t know what brand of brass you have , but the 6.8 SPC is based on the old 30 Remington
and they both use Large rifle primers.

The case head is .422 compaired to the 223s .378. this allows the case to use a large rifle primer.

Let us know what cases you are using and maybe we can help you.

I have a 6.8 SPC and it uses the Large rifle primer (9 1/2 LR).

Re: Relaoding 6.8 SPC

Is your rifle the traditional 6.8 SPC with a 1-10 twist barrel or the 6.8 SPCII with the 1-11 twist barrel? They like completely different loads and bullets. I have loaded for both, the SPCII with the higher pressure chamber and the slower twist for lighter faster bullets is awesome. I am getting 2,900fps out of a Boran Coated 100 gr Nosler which puts it on par with a 243 Win. instead of a AK-47. My older 6.8 is 2,555fps out of a 115 gr MTK which is about equal to a AK round 124 gr at 2425. The SPCII shoots flat for a AR platform. I know it's not a Grendel but everything I've shot at ended up in my freezer. They were all DRT, even a 350-400lb hog. Bang drop.
