Ruger discontinued the 6.8 altogether recently. The rest of the industry went to the SPC II chambering with 1-11 twist for better performance. Ruger choose to stay with the original chambering and as a result sales suffered. And for those who think the 6.8 is a niche cartridge it was the number 2 seller in the AR platform last year behind the 5.56/.223.

I purchased the the Mini 14 in 6.8 about a year ago after doing some research on the 6.8 round. I needed a rifle that would fill my 100- 250 yard void. the 6.8 slamed the door shut. Ammo is expensive but im not using it to go plinking. Hornady Superformance 120gr. is what I use.

I think they started making it in 2008. Probably due to the US military's interest in the 6.8. Hoping it would take off !!!!

Performance-- its a Ruger Mini....... its gonna shoot every time.

Value---If Ruger stopped producing the Mini in 6.8 then you can be sure over time your resale value will climb. I bought mine for 625.00 used. But it had no more then the 20 rounds put through it that the original owner bought with the gun. I never had and never will buy a new gun, always used. But thats just me.

hope this helps. What were your other choices?
