Remington created the 6.8x43mm SPC cartridge for AR-pattern rifles in partnership with US military marksmen. Although ultimately not adopted by the US military for logistics reasons, the cartridge has been shown to demonstrate strong performance at intermediate ranges, delivering higher muzzle energy than the traditional 5.56 NATO load. This property lends itself to greater effectiveness in hunting game such as deer, against which .223/5.56 ammo is often regarded as suboptimal.
Remington, the US’s oldest arms and ammunition manufacturer, produces its cartridges in Lonoke, Arkansas. These include UMC range ammunition, Golden Saber hollow points, and Express cartridges and shotshells.
