I have read some good ftuff in a current G&A article. It came in with some impressive statistics. Don't know if T/C will make a factory barrel as of this point, don't know. Have heard some talk of third party barrels being available, but not sure who is selling them. :wink:
I have a 15" 6.8 SPC, not the carbine. Ive only had it out to the range once. The two loads that i shot were very accurate. Many groups under 1" at 100 yds. I think this will be a great round for the Contender...should do anything the 7-30 Waters will do. The only problem i see is bullet selection. Remington is suppose to come out with a 115 gr Bonded CoreLokt factory load..but havent seen it yet. Barnes is making a 110 gr Triple shock..that should work very well..just costly..$25-30 for box of 50. I have a load with the 110 SP from sierra..but dont know if that bullet will work well on deer size game. JD Jones says the 110 gr VMax works...but only on broadside lung shots...otherwise the bullet will give poor penetration. I plan on finding out what works this fall. My first choice will be the 110 Barnes TS, then the remington factory load..if i canfind any.
