Its tax time and I may have enough refund to get a new upper so I am starting to research what new upper to get for my next rifle. I really like to move up to a bigger caliber like the 6.8SPC and was looking at the Barrett M468 but could not find any dealer selling it. Is the M468 not available anymore and the Barrett website only shows a new model called REC7. Is the REC7 replacing the M468? Attached are a couple of pics of the 2 Barrett rifles.

Hi Niko, unless you have $, I'd recommend against it. First take a look at the cost and availability of the 6.8 SPC. I think the cheapest you can get it for is $1 a round. (maybe you reload, so it might be better).

But if you do have $, then I'd recommend the 6.5 grendal. Check it out the ballistics, accuracy, and impact results on gelatin versus 6.8 spc. In my opinion, it's grendal hands down.

I think you meant the 6.5 Grendel.;)

It is Barrett's Gas Piston version. For the money, recommend LWRC.
