Anyone know, can you load .277 bullets marked ".270 Win" in 6.8 SPC rounds?

Or rather, "should" you?

I've been contemplating a little 6.8 SPC brush gun, but I need to be sure I can buy or make non-lead rounds for it. Barnes makes perfectly good copper bullets, but nothing marked "6.8" AFAIK. They make a 110 grain .277 bullet for the .270, but I have no idea whether that is a good choice for 6.8.

Same diameter. You have to have a nose profile that will let you seat the bullet in a 6.8 case and get it in an AR magazine. Lots of .270 Win bullets will be too long in the ogive. I don't know about this particular one.

The Barnes 110gr TSX is made for the 6.8SPC.
