    Default Which AR-15 would you buy For $775.00 this week (.223 or 6.8)

    If you were only allowed to buy one NEW AR-15 this week for ONLY $775.00 and you had to choose either one "New in the BOX", would you buy the 6.8 SPC or the 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. You only get one.......choose.

    5.56 I don't need to add another caliber right now.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    5.56 for me. It is a dream to find one for that price now.

    Yep, 5.56 for me as well. Don't know a whole lot about the 6.8 SPC other than what little I have read. My choice would simply be based on availability of ammo, components, and price of same. Guess I would have to take a crash course in 6.8 SPC before I took that plunge.

    Well for ammo availability right now 6.8 is the better bet, there is not a lot of 6.8 but there is some and 5.56 is about all horded up now. But Iíd chose nether, donít much like ether round myself, in fact I just listed this one tonight.

    6.8SPC since I have a 5.56 now. In reality, what I really would like is to get ahold of a couple of stripped lowers to build as I see fit.
