I'm looking at the Bushmaster and Dpms 16" probably stock in 6.8spc, Any advantages either way?

Also what makes the Barrett Rec 7 worth $2500???

I don't have any experience with the DPMS, but I have a Bushmaster chambered in 6.8 SPC and I love it. I'm not a big fan of the 5.56 caliber and I didn't want a big heavy AR-10.

There's quite abit of info out on there on twist rates and chambers for the 6.8 spc, I think kotonics is likely your better choice over both of those.

Kotonics, read their FAQ and look at their selection and prices before you buy anything else.

Alright this may be an ignorant question, but im new to this.
So would a 6.8 upper fit a 5.56 lower (are they standard or different with each caliber?)?

No advantages with Bushmaster or DPMS

Right now RRA is the best deal going for a 16", midlength AR15.
They use the correct SAMMI-II chamber just like Cardinal Armory (formerly Kotonics)but not the 1/11" twist rate like Cardinal and other high end builders use.

The improved chamber and a 1/11-1/12" twist rate are very desirable if you want to shoot high velocity ammo or hot hand-loads.

BUT If you are content to shoot standard velocity ammo the RRAs cost/quality ratio is hard to beat. You can get a complete upper from RRA for $450.00

And yes a 6.8 SPC upper will fit any 5.56 AR 15 lower all you need is 6.8 SPC magazines.
