    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.

    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.
