    What are your thoughts on a 6.8mm REM SPC for coyote and deer?

  • #2
    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the bullet is the same size as a .270 bullet. In an AR type rifle I think this would be a very effective bullet. It might tear up a coyote though, so if you are wanting to keep the hide be careful where you aim.

      It should be adequate for coyotes and deer. Not a barn burner though. The bullet is .263 I believe, not .277.

        Woops! Went off half cocked there. American Rifleman had an extensive article on the cartridge. Didn't look too bad and uses 270 bullets.

          I shot a coyote, I called in, with 6.8 SPC in Ruger Mini-14 configuration. The coyote turned to walk away after I screwed up and forgot to uncover my scope lenses before calling. I was able to quickly acquire the doggie and shot it on the walk away in the neck. Tore the neck up bad, but the coyote had mange anyway. I was able to salvage the head/skull. I won't use the 6.8 SPC again for coyote hunting, but will use it for deer hunting, even though I missed a buck with it at 200 yards in the offhand position. Those Minis are hard to accurately shoot offhand.
