6.5 Grendel is different from the 6.8 SPC. They were designed for the same reasons. 6.8 vs. 6.5 is one of those raging debates that has been going on for years. The winner will be whichever the gov dumps money into.
You can get uppers in either caliber.

What exactly is the point of 6.8? Is it supposed to be a compromise between 5.56 and 7.62 or does it have its own abilities?
