I don't have any experience with this round, but does day anyone know if it fragments?

in the right conditions it does just like any other bullet but it is not as prone to fragmentation as the 5.56

'MC' means Metal Case. As in commercial FMJ. Not made to expand or break up.

6.8mm bullet geometry translates into rapid upset/yaw, producing a tendency for the bullet to fail catastrophically and fragment. Most of the experts would recommend OTM or some of the other pricier loads for best effect with 6.8, but 6.8 FMJ should fragment just as reliably as 5.56mm and is known to do so at lower velocities than 5.56mm.

That's interesting, because I've heard elsewhere predictions that a 6.8 FMJ would perform like the 7.62x39 FMJ in gel.

I'd look at the www.68forums.com
They have a lot of information over there about the 6.8mm spc round in the AR-15 platform

I'm buying an 6.8mm upper so I learning more everyday.
It surprising how many magazine covers have had the 6.8mm spc featured.
But so little people actually know about it.
I'm getting a 16" barrel to hunt deer with.
