    Looked at PSA for the 308's, most of them are out of stock. S&W MP 308 same thing. I see some of the multi thousand dollar 308's can be had. But the entry level stuff is hard to find. People are going crazy for the AR-10s. ...and even if you get your rifle...the ammo is $1 to $1.50 per shot...

    And how much did you spend versus a off the shelf AR-10? Happy with your build? Any lessons learned?

    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...

    The 308 rifle niche was already filled with the M1A, FN/FAL, PTR-91, Remington Woodsmaster, and various bolt action 308 rifles. The AR platform in 308 is trying to fill a niche that is already full. www.alloutdoor.com/2015/10/22/heavy-duty-shtf-battle-rifles/ I remember reading about the...

    I have a friend who just recently came out as a wannabe survivalist LOL He want's to buy a rifle, he already owns a handgun and shotgun. I took him to the range and let him shoot every one of my rifles, and he has decided that he wants an AR15. I tried to push him towards a Remington 700 in...

    Given up on the 223, the lack of power, the wind blowing rounds way off coarse. Gone to the to the 308 platform and slaps down crap out to 800 never looked back since. The AR 15 seems like a kids toy to me now, not saying this to start a poo fight. It's just that the 308 thumps everything at...

    Hello. I am new to the forums and fairly new to preparedness and I would like some feedback and suggestions from you veterans. I have been focusing on my food situation and I have a good system and have built up adequate stocks for my needs and now I am turning towards security. I am familiar...

    Working up another article for ReadyMan Magazine and I could use some input. I was just debating with my Navy SEAL co-host the merits of a .308 battle rifle. His point: there's not much of a tactical slot for a semi-auto .308. So, we'll probably build an article with him shooting the SCAR Heavy...

    Palmetto State Armory announces PA-10, 308 Winchester on the AR platform. Just in time for shotshow. This picture was posted to the PSA facebook page just a few minutes ago. Maybe this will help bring down the prices of the AR platform chambered in 308 Winchester. If the AR-10 cost a little...

    When giving thought to my caliber selection, I have considered that in a martial law scenario, one might have the need to disable a vehicle using small arms. I have heard a .308 is capable of cracking an engine block but have never seen it as it is inheritantly dangerous and expensive. 1) Can...

    My buddy that runs the gun shop I do all my business with has a SCAR in the tan color and mine is black so we decided we would swap butts and see what they looked like. Everyone in the store at the time like the change so we left them that way for now. The AR10 is so far a very fun, accurate...

    I am looking to get an AR-15 or AR-10. But one set back.. I need one cheap because i am short on money. I want to get a .223 because since i am a hunter, avid shooter and i think in a SHTF situation, .223 would be better for MY personal needs than a .22. So if anyone has any suggestions or knows...

    Bushmaster AR-10 vs. DPMS AR-10 Which one is better? Which one do you prefer? I am getting one in a month and a half and can't decide.

    Here's the deal: Which .308 rifle would you buy if you could only have one for a multi function rife? Choices are FN FAL ... AR 10 ... Saiga. I thought about the Cetme but the ones coming in from Century are crap IMO and others opinions it seems. The PTR or PT (i think thats it) seem like...
