6.8 SPC Bleg

As you may know, Ko-tonics will be sending a 6.8SPC upper to me to take to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. I’m on my own for ammo. A couple of folks have recommended Silver State Armory. But I just don’t want to spend almost a dollar per round. Anyone know of some less pricey ammo?

    I load my own for about $0.30 per round, if you amortize over 5-7 uses of each piece of brass.

    That’s about as cheap as the commercial stuff gets. They’re in Oregon, so if you could have it shipped to someone local in NV, it won’t cost you very much. I’ve had good luck with outdoormarksman in the past, ordered piles of that “Miwall” reload stuff.

    You should really buy a reloading setup one of these days. For around $125 you can get everything you need for a single stage press, and switching calibers costs about $30. I haven’t bought commercial ammo in a couple years.

    Also, just make sure that anyone who wants to shoot a mag brings their own ammo, or gives you $20 per go.

    Uncle, if you can’t have it shipped to Reno and it saves you some money to have it shipped to the Seattle area I can probably take some extra ammo with me. Contact me offline and we’ll get the details figured out.

    Joe, you’re in Seattle? I thought you were in Idaho.

    joe, just shot you an email.

    You can’t really get away from paying full retail for 6.8 SPC … no military force issues the stuff, so there ain’t a surplus market.

    You can get unloaded brass from silver state for $25/100.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
