Remington 6.8MM Remington Special 115 Grain Metal Case
The 6.8 mm Remington SPC (or 6.8x43mm) is a new rifle cartridge that was developed with collaboration from individual members of US SOCOM. Based upon the .30 Remington cartridge (case shortened and necked to .277), it is midway between the 5.56x45mm NATO and 7.62x39mm in bore diameter and velocity with good energy. It is particularly adaptable to current 5.56 mm NATO firearms the cartridge overall length being the same.
The 6.8 mm Remington SPC is designed to deliver 44% greater energy than the 5.56 mm NATO at 100-200 meters. When compared to the more powerful and well-established 7.62 mm NATO cartridge, the 6.8 mm falls short in all these areas, but has less recoil and is more controllable. While the 6.8 mm generates around 1,759 ft∑lbf (2385 J) of muzzle energy with its 115 grain bullet (note: this figure is from an unrealistic 24" bolt-action test barrel), the 7.62 mm NATO (M80) fires a 147 grain bullet at 2,750 ft/s for 2460 ft∑lbf of energy (838.2 m/s for 3335 J).
