  1. Thank you. I appreciate the info. I dropped it off to be cut, but not fluted.
  2. Please let me know your thoughts on accuracy going from 24 to 20 inches. Also your thoughts on fluted barrels. Anyone look at the "honeycombed" http://forceproduction.com/page26/index.html fluting? Spiral or straight? I currently have a 24 inch bull barrel. I need to lighten the load a bit. Thank you in advance...
  3. I am interested in your opinions if you don't mind sharing. Thanks, Papa
  4. Please PM me the price list and thank you for your service... Papa
  5. My wife the artist is very impressed, but wants to know why I am looking at s "machine guns."

    Les Baer .308s

    I was kind of curious as to why this particular rifle is not mentioned or represented in this forum... . Still learning, still reading, still saving up!
  7. Wow!!!!! What a gift!!!!! You are one lucky guy!

    Colt 7.62 Rifle

    What do you think it will cost?
  9. When will it be available? Any details on accuracy?
  10. Wow, nice. Tell me about the scope and the flash suppressor or muzzle brake, please. Thanks, Papa
  11. I wil definitely revisit the LaRue website. Care to post a pic of that rifle?
  12. 308reloaded, I am looking to reduce recoil with a muzzle brake. I have an old and recurring injury that I am trying to protect. Thanks for your reply, Papa
  13. whoa, nice shootin' there, edgecrusher.
  14. Accushot mono, is that a fore grip extension? Thanks for the info. I looked at the LaRue. Are you pleased with it?
  15. PRS? Well, maybe you could start a "Show us your favorite .308" thread, including stats. Two categories, complete builds, and complete rifle with any modifications. Just a thought borrowed from the AR15 sites. Picatinny Rail System?
  16. I read a lot before doing/buying anything. I have about 20 firearm magazines of various types here on the coffee table, and was looking at the .223 before, but decided it was too light a caliber for what I wanted. I also realize that the author of the magazine article is one voice, though they always seem to know what they are talking about. A forum like this has many more voices, many more opinions, and are spending their own hard earned money. I am learning a little bit, and am smart enough to know I don't know jack. I looked at a few .308s at Sportsman's Warehouse this afternoon, all DPMS, while talking to a buddy who mainly hunts deer with a .300 rifle and/or crossbow, but has taken a hog. I have the RRA catalog, and a few others. I really doubt I will be shooting any hogs beyond 200 yds, but want a clean kill with one shot, with the ability to quickly follow up should it/they charge or if just wounded. I am looking for quality, accuracy, and reliability. I have thought about a build, but think I should get my feet wet with a factory rifle. I appreciate your time and knowledge.
  17. Sweet! Doesn't look like 16 lbs, but I won't second guess you. Is there a post here somewhere, maybe a poll of the rifles the folks here like best? Thanks for all your input.
  18. This one would be more like 12 lbs. The weight does concern me, but not near as much as the full recoil of a .308 with an 8 lb rifle. I can always stop and rest carrying the rifle, and plan to mate it with a bipod. The tripod I guess is a joke based on the physics of it all, but like I said, I am here to learn from those who know. Thanks... Oh, plan to attempt to reduce the wild hog population with the rifle more than anything else.
  19. I thought I didn't know anything about the .308 Semiautos, but I overestimated my knowledge base! While reading some of the posts, I realize I have no idea about anything, but am learning. Thanks.
  20. I was wondering that also, but I am not experienced in metal working or gunsmithing, both of which may be technical in nature, but require true craftsmanship, which I also lack.
  21. Howdy, I am thinking of the 26 inch bull barrel on the Varmint A4 as opposed to the 20 inch for reasons of reduced recoil. Old injury that does not need to be aggravated... Am thinking of a muzzle brake also, but thought I might not need it with the 26 inch bull. Your thoughts? Thanks...
  22. Thank you and thank you. Obviously, I am a newbie!
