Here is some info I just got from one o my friends that is at the NRA convention about new developments with the 6.8apc I had the opportunity today to speak at length with the North American Sales Manager for LWRC and an attorney employed by Federal in their Product Service Both men were surprisingly candid about the recently surfaced details confirming the existence of Federal 6.8 SPC ammo. The following are some of the details and comments shared with me by the two gentlemen: ]The contract for LWRC rifles and Federal 6.8 ammunition is for the Saudi Government. A contract has been agreed upon and ammunition is currently in production to fill that contract. The ammunition is being manufactured to specifications provided by the Saudis. However 6.8 SPC testing and development is continuing within Federal. The ammunition being supplied in the Saudi contract is indeed the 90g Fusion projectile. It is expected that a formal introduction of 6.8 ammunition to the commercial market will be made by Federal in 2013 barring any unforeseen delays. It is likely the introduction will be announced at the 2013 SHOT show but no guarantees. Although the 90g Fusion projectile will be the first offering, other less expensive projectiles suitable for training will likely follow. Federal is well aware of the need for cost effective training rounds. However, the attorney from Federal was not aware of the existence of both SAAMI SPC and non-SAAMI SPC-2 chambers, but expressed an interest in knowing more about the differences, and indicated he would join 68forums to collect more details. The LWRC Sales Manager also made a comment that multiple ammunition manufactures other than Federal will be offering 6.8 ammunition in the very near future. This did not appear to be conjecture or speculation. He spoke with such authority, it suggested to me that either LWRC has negotiated with additional manufacturers to produce 6.8 SPC ammo, or he has sufficient industry intel to make such a confident statement. All in all...GOOD NEWS.
