The 6.8 SPC cartridge was developed by the US Army Marksmanship Unit, US Special Operations Command and Remington Arms to resolve some issues with the military’s standard 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge. The 5.56 NATO round suffered in the transition from the M16 to the M4, as the smaller carbine configuration lacked the muzzle length to take full advantage of the cartridge. 6.8 SPC performs well out of smaller platforms and shorter barrels. It is based on a shortened version of the .30 Remington case.
