In 2008, Bison Armory started up business to serve AR-15 enthusiasts using 6.8 SPC (6.8 x 43mm) ammunition, introducing their own line of barrels and offering accessories from the best in the business. They soon moved into building semi-custom uppers and lowers, and in 2011 expanded to include builds, parts and accessories for their 7.62 x 51mm BR-X (7.62 NATO) line. In 2012, they introduced the 6.8 BSP (Bison Subsonic Platform), an industry first that features a 16” barrel with a high twist rate to stabilize both their custom 200 grain 6.8mm bullets at subsonic velocities and standard full power 6.8 SPC loads. In 2013 Bison Armory, rolled out the.223 Wylde line.
I was fortunate enough to be a prototype tester for their brand new FULCRUM line of barrels. A Bison Armory exclusive product that give you the heavy barrel accuracy in a mid-weight barrel, and let me tell you it is insanely accurate. Allow me to tell you about my first experience with the FULCRUM barrel. I was shipped my rifle in 3 separate parts; the lower (to be picked up from an FFL), the upper, and the scope. Bison Armory had touted to me how accurate it would be, so I wanted to put it to the test. After assembling the parts, I took it to my person range. I set up a 4″ plate and backed up to 100 yards. I was able to “ring” the 4″ plate on every shot. I decided to really test it and back up to 300 yards. As I fired my first shot we saw the plate rock and were astonished. Thinking it was new rifle luck, I decided that I would throw 3 more down range. Again every shot was a hit.
