The 6.8mm Remington SPC was developed by some of the sharpest minds in the ammo industry including Remington Arms engineers and members of the US special forces community. It is designed to balance the advantages of the .223/5.56 NATO cartridge (compact size, light weight, high velocity) with those of the 7.62x51 NATO (long-range performance and accuracy, high caliber and mass) to produce a potent intermediate range round.
Designed specifically for the AR-15 platform, the 6.8mm SPC takes great advantage of Eugene Stoner's modular design. Shooters who enjoy firing both .223/5.56 NATO and 6.8mm Remington ammo can convert their AR to either cartridge simply by changing their rifle's upper assembly. This operation requires no special tools, takes only a couple minutes, and makes it possible for budget conscious shooters to have "two guns in one" by owning two uppers but only one lower (including the grip, stock, and receiver) to mount them to.
