    .308 AR

    I have always kind of passed up the idea of a .308 AR. I am not sure just why except that generally they are expensive. Mags are hard to find, the whole rifle is "different", etc. BUT I have to admit that IF you are building your own, it is easier to make an accurate AR than any other rifle. So perhaps an AR in .308 is a reasonable idea.

    ?Do any of you have one or have experience with one.

    Weeeeeeell... I was able to parlay my Gander employment into a Savage AR-10 MSR Long Range.

    At half price.

    A couple of weeks ago I finally got it in my grubbies on it; after waiting 8 long, impatient months.

    It was worth the wait.

    I've barely put iron sights on it, and haven't taken it to the range (yet.) But, I'm damn impressed. The non-reciprocation side charging handle is a godsend with the stiff .308/ 7.62x51 buffer spring. The rifle stock is the new 3rd Gen Magpul PRS stock, which is (dang it!) a significant improvement over the 2nd Gen that I put on another rifle. Best o' all is the trigger; a guestimated 2-3 pounds with almost zero creep. Prolly the best semiauto trigger I've ever felt. The only thing I don't really like about the gun is the finish, which is a little spotty. Then again, it's a battle rifle -- who cares?  

    I'll let you know when I get it to the range.
