Thinking I really want an AR type rifle, but not the 11 lb AR-10. And I just can't see buying a 223, since it isn't legal for big game here, and I don't think its got quite enough oomph anyway.
Anybody have any experience with the 6.8mm SPC. Seems to me that while it aint no super ultra mega mag, it should work just fine. I was thinking Mule Deer Size (250lbs on the large side) on down. And I know everybody's friend or uncle or internet persona has shot an elephant with a 223, I just don't think it is a big game rifle with enough power for me. Not enough margin for error as it were.
Am I kidding myself thinking the 6.8mm SPC would work? I'm not thinking long range termination either, just normal woodland hunting. It seems to compare with the 257 roberts or 260 remington with the carbine barrel, and a little better with a 20-22" barrel. My Remington book lists a 270 "managed recoil" as being essentially the identical round.
Anybody have any thoughts or experiences??
