    Default Best 6.8 upper for the money?

    I got a buddy who wants to buy a complete 6.8 upper. What is the best 6.8 upper for the money. He wants an entry level low budget upper. Can one be had for say....$400....or....$500. What should he order and where should he look?? He wants it in 16" or 18" and will use it mostly for hunting. Thanks in advance for your help.

    The 6.8 is the fastest growing cartridge and #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs with an AR15.


    AR Performance, ARP, However you label it, nothing but the best in AR15 Barrels

    Agreed. That upper has "all" the 6.8 performance specs you want. Correct barrel specs with good chamber and twist. Midlength gas, M4 feed ramps. This also comes "with" the much stronger 9310 steel bolt included in the deal.
    The 6.8 SPC is the fastest growing AR-15 cartridge. It is by far the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs with an AR15.

    Get the SOCOM upper over the Hunter to get the "better" chambering and twist, IMHO. It'll serve him better in the long run if he want's to re-load "hot" in the future.

    Plus 1 for Ar Performance. I just ordered the Socom 16in today, with some changes. Now the drooling starts.

    Tell him to look no further than ARP. He might have an issue though. After looking at their site with all the new stuff H added it would be hard to settle for the cheapest one. I haven't seen anyone that customizes more than ARP and with production price ranges too.
    DOES ANYONE KNOW A CHEAT CODE FOR INFINITE AMMO?

    The Nitro Cauterized SOCOM barrel gives about the rust resistance of SS and other more benefits. I'm going with the SCARBed Stainless Steel for the extra 2 inches but mostly for the near rust proof of the barrel after the SCARB treatment for my area.
    The VI POINT VIII Specification Eye Eye is Great!
