A little quick background.....I am prior military....was an armorer in the Army.....loved that job. As a civilian and approaching retirement I now hobby in building AR's and also I focus on long range shooting....I have a 6.5 Creedmoor precision rifle and a .338 lapua magnum precision rifle.....I can consistently shoot 1000 yards.....and I also love to build on the AR platform. My first build was a silenced .300aac SBR designed to shoot subsonic. I love it. I have also built a few 5.56 and .308. I have consistently shot at 960 yards with a .308 I built. I am a pretty good shooter, dedicated student, knowledgeable....and my passions for this run high. Not long ago I was also on FB in a couple of rifle forums. I had posted this beautiful 16" AR in .300AAC I had built.....it was designed to shoot supersonic rounds, to 400 yds - 500yds. The army lists the MER on this platform at 460 meters. I built it for fun. I can afford to. It operates so very well. It is fun..........And man I got TORCHED on that forum, like relentlessly. I was like....damn......torched for building a "dumb gun" that "was built for the exact opposite concept of the calibers design". I get it. I would bet money the monkey that made that statement has a 5.56mm AR pistol which of course is "the exact opposite concept of the calibers design"....but I get it. I am solid with my choices so I was not phased any.....taken back a bit maybe....because....damn. What did many folk do for a life prior to keyboard mouthiness? Any way......I would love to hear any thoughts on this subject. Even if I get torched.
