Shop LDT 6.8 Warrior

 

  We are very excited to introduce our first 6.8 rifle to you! We set out to develop the most accurate and versatile 6.8 SPC ll rifle on the planet. We have spent the last year designing and testing barrels til we arrived at what we think is the perfect 16" 6.8 barrel. The Barrel and BCG are the most crucial components on your rifle and we set out to make those as good as possible. This rifle is perfect for hunters, benchrest shooters, competition, and law enforcement. The barrel is Match Grade made from 416 stainless steel, hand lapped, button rifled, and has 1/11 twist. We fluted our barrel to reduce weight and help dissipate heat. We guarantee all our 6.8 SPC barrels, rifles, and complete uppers will shoot sub MOA with match ammo or we will give your money back! 

          

 

         

            History

       -The 6.8 mm Remington Special Purpose Cartridge is a rifle cartridge that was developed by Remington Arms in collaboration with members of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, United States Special Operations Command to possibly replace the 5.56 Nato cartridge in a Short Barreled Rifle(SBR)/Carbine.The goal was to create a cartridge that would bridge the gap between 5.56 mm and 7.62x51mm Nato. The 6.8mm SPC cartridge was designed to address the deficiencies of the terminal performance of the 5.56x45mm Nato cartridge  The 6.8 SPC delivers 44% more energy than the 5.56 mm NATO (M4 configuration) at 100–300 metres (330–980 ft). The 6.8 mm SPC is not the ballistic equal of the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge, however; it has less recoil, is more controllable in rapid fire, and lighter, allowing operators to carry more ammunition than would otherwise be possible with the larger caliber round. The 6.8 mm generates around 2,385 J (1,759 ft·lbf) of muzzle energy with a 7.5-gram (115 gr) bullet. In comparison, the 5.56x45mm round (which the 6.8 is designed to replace) generates around 1,796 J (1,325 ft·lbf) with a 4.0 g (62 gr) bullet, giving the 6.8 mm a terminal ballistic advantage over the 5.56 mm of 588 J (434 ft·lbf). One of the enigmatic features of this cartridge is it being designed for a short barrel carbine length rifle that the standard rifle length is (usually 41 cm (16 in)). The round only gains about 7.6–10.7 m/s (25–35 ft/s) for every 25 mm of barrel length past the standard 410-millimetre (16 in) barrel (all else being equal) up to barrel's length around 560–610 mm (22–24 in) with no gain/loss in accuracy. The 6.8 round easily outperforms the AK47 round.
