308

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    I have a Remington Model 700 in .308 and a FNX45 in .45ACP. I am looking to buy a .300 AAC Blackout upper in the near future. I am considering the Rugged Obsidian for the .45, and the Rugged Radiant 762 for the .30 cal weapons. Does anyone have any experience with these cans? Thanks in...

    I started a similar thread a couple days ago for AR-15s, and AR-10s have come up a couple times already, so I guess I'll start an AR-10 thread. Here's the AR-15 post quoted. Same rules apply, just switch out every -15 for a -10.

    What kind of ammo have you found works best (most consistent/accurate) in a shorter barrel (16-18") semi auto, specifically AR-10s and derivatives? Would you rather have deep stores of a lighter 145-149gr round or a heavier 168-175gr round? Rather have a little more of a decent round like...

    Title says it all. I have a Remi-700 26" BBL Varmint in .308 (its a real tack driver) but when I take it hunting, the gun it too long and heavy in the bush and too [top] heavy when hiking long distances (~10 miles a day) in the Mountains of Wyoming (no Horses available or ATV allowed). So...

    So I decided on an experimental approach to both get match ammo for my ar10 and bullets for my 300 black out. It went bad but not as bad as I thought. I started with ZQI 7.62 nato I pulled all the bullets dropped the powder in the casing down to 43 grains of what the company tells me is...

    Looking to get a Remington 700. Which is the best value for the price? I have heard the Varmint is an amazing rifle but I would love to hear some of your suggestions. I'm afraid between a scope and rifle (plus rounds and extras) this project could get expensive real quick :(...

    Well... Im considering buying a FN SCAR chambered in either .223 or .308... Was wondering what you guys see as possible advantages , and or disadvantages , of one or the other... My buddy told me the military quit using 308 because it kept going through the walls and became a hazard.. The...

    I'm looking into something larger than the 5.56/.223. The main rounds I've been looking at are 6.8 SPC and 6.5 Grendel. Opinions and evaluations on these rounds?

    Looking at ballistics I see that the .243 has much less drop than the .308, would that also mean that the .243 is more accurate? This would mostly be a rifle used to hunt white tail. I have heard that the .243 will cause more damage to edible meat due to the higher velocity, would it really...

    I made another thread on the MSR a few days ago, but there's some new models coming out aswell, several aimed at the mil-spec purist perspective, a couple SBRs, and of course, my favorite thus far, the MSR. Also, it is confirmed that PTR has redisgined the PTR32 in 7.62x39 soviet. It will...

    :D:http://centerfiresystems.com/AKAGUN-VEPR-54R.aspx This is a brand spanking new product improved Russian Dragunov. These are quite probably superior in accuracy to the original military issue dragunov. These are 7.62x54 guys!:D:

    Ok this is my first rifle, I want an all around multi purpose.. I am thinking of springfield squad scout or ar style 7.62. I just want a rifle that will be a combat defensive weapon as well as a weapon that I could use to knock down a deer if needed. I would like to hear from people who have...

    My question is certainly one that's been asked before, however the search function is weak and I didn't find it by flipping back a page or two. So bear with me... What is an inexpensive, legitimate option for a MBR(main battle rifle) that is NOT an AR? At this point in my life a 1300 dollar...

    If your ONLY two choices for a personal AR/MBR (gotta cover your bases for the nit-pickers) were the Armalite AR-10 16" Carbine or the PTR91 Squad Carbine 16" which would you choose and what would be your decision factors?

    My wife is wanting a "Real" rifle. Not an AR mind you, but an all-purpose, hunting and defense rifle. The spec: .308/7.62X51 caliber Under 8 lbs. Semi-auto preferred, bolt maybe 10+ rd mags. 18" barrel preferred, 16" maybe able to take a scope So far the only one I have found that seems...

    Ok, so for the past few years my MBR has been a converted saiga 7.62x39. Which in it's own right isn't a bad thing at all. I love AK's. The design just works. All be it a some what stolen design. I am pretty hardcore into weapons history. So seeing where all modern select fire magazine fed...
