Anyone use an AR-15 in 6.8 mm?
(Nothing like the helplessness following knee surgery to rekindle my love of firearms.)
Anyway, I am in the market for a post apocalypse rifle. I shoot my handguns and a shotgun at least monthly, but I have not fired a rifle since the Army Reserves > 15 years ago. Budget (if I don't want a divorce) 1-1.5k $$.
I'm leaning towards an AR-15 as I at least know the parts of an M-16 and I can add accessories when I have more funds. However, I notice many people feel the .556 is too wimpy and the kick of a .308 may be too much. The 6.8mm sounds just right. (Kind of like Goldilocks.)
Does anyone have any experience with the 6.8 (or 6.5) version?
Here is my top pick at the moment:
Thanks for your feedback.
