If it isn't stamped "ARP" it is not an AR Performance barrel. Years before most companies knew the 6.8 existed we were busy testing different rifling and chamber designs to make sure our 6.8 barrels performed better than any other production barrel on the market. They out perform some so called match barrels at a fraction of the cost. Sorry guys, they went up $30 on me this year.

If you are looking for a factory loaded AR  cartridge to hunt yotes, deer and hogs the 6.8 can't be beat in terminal performance. The exterior ballistics of the 6.8 and Grendel are within a few inches of each other all the way to 400yds. The 6.8 starts off 80-100fps faster with the same weight bullet and barrel length. The 6.8 has a great selection of usable hunting bullets. A 5.56 and a 6.8 could handle every possible need.

Hi perf. chamber and match grade barrel allow for ANY factory ammo to be used along with the hottest handloads. The throat/freebore is designed to be more accurate with a wider range of bullets than the typical SPCII chamber.

    DO NOT USE  bullets that are larger than .277" in these 6.8 barrels, the chambers were designed for .277" bullets and all 6.8 barrels have a .277" bore so bullets larger than .277 will cause excess pressure and increased copper fouling.  It seems some Maker bullets and Cavity Back bullets made by Maker are .278" and on top of that they are solid copper so check the diameter of the bullets before using them.
