Exclamation 6,8x45mm Kramer Urban Combat Cartridge

6,8x45mm Kramer Urban Combat Cartridge (UCC) for Urban Warfare Ops by Defense Review

"... Well, now there's a new 6.8mm assault rifle cartridge being made by Kramer Defense, LLC (KD) that gives approximately the same or similar performance as the 6.8 SPC without having to go to a modified .30 Remington case. It's called the 6.8x45mm Kramer Urban Combat Cartridge (UCC) a.k.a. 6.8mm Kramer UCC a.k.a. 6.8 Kramer UCC and it utilizes a standard 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge case. DefenseReview first became aware of the 6.8 Kramer cartridge at SHOT Show 2008 when we ran into Larry Kramer in the tents outside of Oakley Eyewear's booth. Mr. Kramer handed us an inert round, and explained to us that he could safely achieve roughly the same velocity as the 6.8 SPC, which surprised us. Kramer claims that he can safely get a 115-grain (115gr) Hornady OTM 6.8x45mm Kramer UCC bullet up to 2500 fps (feet per second) out of a 16" 1/10-twist Krieger barrel, and has done so in tests. Kramer's firing test results comparing the 115gr OTM 6.8mm Kramer cartridge to 62gr SS109/M855 ball 5.56mm NATO and 123gr 7.62x39mm Russian ball are below. Kramer achieved 2440 fps out of a 14.5" Krieger barrel with the same Hornady 6.8 OTM round..."
