    Anybody know when the Ammo is coming out? Any rifle makers come out with new 6.8 stuff, any news would be good.

    Because the Military is not going to adopt the 6.8, thus turning down what would have been the best combat round ever designed; the 6.8 will wither and fade away.

    6.8SPC was intended to be another option for SF use, and reports from the field indicate that they are still getting more 6.8SPC weapons. It was not intended for general issue, although there was a lot of noise in the press about that possibility.
