    AR-10 Build Question on specing out my new project

    I know that AR-10's are not a lego as AR-15s, being I kind of have to stay inside a specific style. The Style I have chose is Aero's M5 (I did not have the funds for Seekins or I would of went that route) I felt it was best to get a Lower and some mags in the safe prior to the upcoming...

    First build, new to LR, looking for thoughts on my components

    M40a1 build list recommendations?

    So I want to build a m40a1 “style” rifle in 6.5 creed On sum what of a budget, what would my best bet be to stay fairly cheap and accurate, start with a cheap adl Varmint or build from a bare receiver on up ? I’d like it to be sub MOA or better, but in the end it’s just going to be a hunting and...

    Tikka T3x Rebarrel

    I'm sure there is a better forum to have this in, but as a new guy I'm not sure which one, so feel free to move it. Now to the meat of the post. I have a tikka t3x action that I am considering rebarreling myself with a prefit (It will probably be a shouldered prefit). The goal is to be a...

    Review First Build List...Yeah I know SMH.

    I am currently deployed and I have put together a base list of items that I plan on purchasing for my first bolt gun. I add that I am deployed because lead times are not a big deal and I can get some discounts. If you have experience in any of the parts, I am open to different parts and your...

    Small ring mauser thoughts?

    .308 AR BCG recommendation

    So I've decided to assemble myself an ar10. I have an aero precision upper and assembled lower on the way. I've been trying to research a good bcg for this build but theres lots of options. I'm probably going to put a 20" criterion barrel on it and use it for long range shooting. Any help or...

    DPMS GII built up or DPMS LR-308 build?

    I am wanting to get an AR type in .308 WIN and having a hard time deciding how to go about it. I like the idea of the GII of being lighter by a bit and having some more compatability. However to my understanding it is easier to mess with the more standard DPMS 308 stuff. Thoughts and opinions...

    Favorite powder/loads for .308 18" 1/10 auto?

    I'm hoping to draw on the experience of members who have walked the same path I'm going without repeating everyone else's mistakes. Lazy me. I haven't reloaded for a number of years but am getting back into it now that I have access to a longer range. I used to reload extensively but primarily...

    PRS .22 Trainer converted from airsoft chassis

    I wanted a .22 trainer to practice position shooting but without the cost of burning up my 300wm barrel and ammo. However I could not find anything that was similar to the chassis system I run on my rifle for a .22. I was browsing the internet and stumbled onto an airsoft rifle, a licensed copy...

    I was making small talk with my FFL dealer while making an unrelated transfer and long story short, he tried to make me a deal I couldn't refuse. He offered me an Anderson AM10 lower for $50 NIB. How could I refuse that? I couldn't, I bought it. I got home, he had sold me a matched AM10...

    Custom 308

    I had the fortunate opportunity to have a new build done. I had close friend agreed to build this for me and my newborn son (I'll let him reply if he chooses to take credit, as he is somewhat retired and I'm humbled he agreed to build it for us). A brief history about this rifle. It started...
