.308

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    Here's the situation: I bought a Saiga .308 years ago and did the conversion to move the FCG forward. I also changed the furniture around. I have only 8 magazines (8-rd up to 25-round, polymer and CSS Specs). Those damn mags are expensive! I wanted an RPK-style rifle with the 30-caliber punch...

    A friend and I went in on 1000, .308 147 gr projectiles (these are new not pulled) and so far I am not all that impressed with them. While reloading, one in ten at best would have a short OAL. I measured a bunch of the projectiles and the measurements were all over the place, weight- 147.2 to...

    So first off, I have to thank you guys on some awesome suggestions in the past for firearms. My buddy's PAL arrived a few days ago and on suggestions from here, he got a Ruger American Rimfire in .22LR :cool:. Awesome gun, shot it a ton yesterday and it was a great time. My PAL is about to...

    Hey folks, I've got an old Remington model 700 .308 that belonged to my dad. He bought it sometime in the late 70's and it was left to me when he passed. It currently has an old Tasco 3x9 on it which he mounted when he bought the rifle, the glass is actually pretty good on those older Tasco...

    Alright, found these surplus Spanish Mausers in .308 for $169.95 for sale at Samco Global Arsenal and I have question. Are these rifles safe to shoot ? I heard that these rifles were chambered in 7x57 Mauser and they converted them to .308 Winchester(7.62x51 NATO). Also I heard that .308 are...

    I bought a set of steel sapi plates on ebay as an extra set... But I know a lot of people have them as their primary plates. The issue is bullet frag. That nasty hot copper jacket screaming towards your jugular or shredding your nice plate carrier. Realistically and statistically you aren't...

    For a battle rifle meant for the ranges from 100-500 yards which would be better. Vepr .308 FAL Or m1a from springfield. What I want to know is - Accuracy Reliability Weight. Which barrel length? General Pros and Cons. And any other Information that would be helpful. I will not be in a situation...

    I found a Springfield armory Socom II for a grand and i was wondering if it was a deal I should go with. I'm not crazy about .308 ballistics out of a 16 inch barrel or the cluster rail. The rail is an easy fix. What do you guys think? anyone own one and how does it do in real world applications...

    So i bought a Ruger American .308 and have on the way a Bipod and a Cheek-pad ( Cheek-pad was free with the purchase of the firearm). the next goal will be to get a Scope for the Ruger American .308. I dont want to spend a god awful amount of money. So i was wondering what you all thought of...
  11. Firearms General Discussion
    I need to make a decision here so I thought I would ask for other opinions. So here's the deal. I have three AR's and one M1A (scout). I also have an older varmint type Remington 700 .308 with a newer HS Precision stock. Unfortunately it's not an effective rifle right now as it needs to have...

    I'm a very happy man, yesterday I got my new survival rifle from my FFL dealer. It's a Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle, and I haven't even fired it yet. Seeing as this is the first NEW rifle I've ever owned, I thought I'd ask if there was anything special y'all think I should do to break her in...

    I'll get straight to the situatuion. I am looking for my next purchase and need some insight. I'm looking for a semi automatic .308 AR10 or something similar. The use of the rifle would be for protection while backpacking/camping. I have a G19 as a side arm. I planned on purchasing a Remington...

    One of the reasons the AR and AK rifles are so popular is that, well, they're so popular. Tons of accessories and aftermarket parts, and if things start to break down, their ubiquity would mean you'd still be able to find replacements. What's the closest thing in .308? M1A? FAL? Rem 700...

    Would .308, .30-06, and 8x57 fire safely in a rifle chambered in 8-06? I know there would be little to no accuracy with the .30 caliber rounds. I also know they would all chamber headspace could cause safety concerns. I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS FOR HUNTING! This is only a question concerening SHTF...

    can .30-06 cartridges fit on a .308 stripper clip? i have had alot of trouble finding .30-06 strippers. i know that the base diameter is the same but is their some reason that this would not work.

    I'm always advising people on here, "you need a bolt-action .308!", yet still don't have one myself.. So this afternoon i went down to the local fun shop and found a barely used Remington 700 .308 with what appears to be a RealTree camo stock and a heavy "varmint" barrel for $450, and a Savage...

    Okay so i know this will get alot of back and forth but i thought i would post it anyway. So as the title says we are going to talk about the truth about scavenging. Most people on this forum always make comments like "It wont be like a video game you wont just find ammo everywhere" And i am...

    I've had my rifle for about 3 weeks by now. I was really impressed when I got it. It appeared well assembled. The bolt release doesn't work worth a crap, but from what I have seen that is the case with all FAL rifles. Your have to pull the bolt back a little to get the bolt to drop after it...
