I am new to the 6.8 SPC, but have used the Hornady Black with 110 grain V-max and the SSA with 115 grain HPBT. Both were used on the hunt this week. I had some issue with misfires on the Hornady Black factory ammo, with light primer strike, so have to figure out the problem.

No issue with the factory SSA.

If you reload, Hornady 120gr SST with AA2200.

Death on contact, excellent terminal performance on deer, hogs, and coyotes.

Another vote for 120 SST. My second is a Barnes 110 TSX.

+ 1

26.5-27.5 grains is the sweet spot for my rifles with 1:11 twist.

Also, if you can find 90 gr Gold Dots they work great too with 1/2 MOA accuracy.

I've been using a cheap Speer 100 gr. for about 5 years and recently switched to the 120 gr. sst with 27.5 gr. of AA2200 with good accuracy. Its just about peanut planting time around here and will get to put some swine down with them I hope. Will report results

My son handloads the 120 SSTís and has good performance with those. I recommended that bullet to him after reading numerous posts here on PM to the effectiveness of the SST. The 6.8 is a great hog cartridge from an AR platform in my opinion.
