    I love rifle length handguards on 16" barrels.

    Me, too. Those and midlengths are my favorites.

    I want to shoot it :o

    6.8SPC? Other than knowing that it is an AR variant caliber, I don't know much, what's special about it?

    larger diameter, more stopping power. i think the black hawk down incedent spurred the military to develope that caliber.

    I imagine the ammo for that is pretty expensive, no?

    Only bad thing about 6.8 is it's hard to get ammo or brass for when compared to .223 :o

    Remington dropped the ball on that one.

    Now that AR is deserving of my praise. I would be more into them if they all used ammunition like that

    Does the lower receiver use the same parts kit as a normal AR?

    More out of curiosity than anything else. And it'd have to be a completely new rifle. Plus, I don't need anything else running up my ammo costs right now.

    get a press and reload! that brass is probably worth quite a bit, so if you dont load it, keep it and sell it.
    i figured that at current rates i leave $10-$20 of brass on the ground every time I shoot 9mm. its worth it to set up something to catch the brass.

    you must shoot alot because once fired 9mm brass is dirt cheap.

    last time me and Platinum_Thunder went shooting, we went through probably 500rds of 9mm, and 200 or 300 .45. and we were only there for an hour or an hour and a half
