  1. Nope. I don't think I've ever seen a .416 Ruger.
  2. This year has been pathetic! No one is shooting what they can't replace and the best range in the area has been closed until August and now only open on weekends. The couple of you guys that I have been saving brass for please contact me so I can get it shipped to you.
  3. What we often mean by "lube the hell" out of it is soak it in Mobil 1 overnight. Remove it from the oil in the morning and let most of the drips flow off of it. Slap it back in the rifle and go shoot. Don't wipe it off. You want oil seeping out of every space and orifice as your shooting. Take some oil along and if it quits seeping add more. These big guys need LOTS of oil to get all those new parts to mate together smoothly.

    A good read.

  5. Hey mister watch it! I resemble that remark. Or at least I'm close 6'6". Even I have my scopes set at about where you are talking about. As can be seen by this old family picture. As far as getting the scope square and level to the rifle I do as many others have already said. Place rifle rest on table. Place rifle in rest and get it level using a wheeler bubble level. Hang a plumb bob in a well lit area and while the rifle stays perfectly level align the vertical crosshair with the plumb line. If that plumb line is slightly stretched and not touching the floor or swinging, it has to be perfectly level.
  6. I just looked at the TN arms listing for that lower and the 2nd picture they have there is with it mated to an Aero upper. With that said, the TN lower is "Receiver Constructed of High-Strength Nylon 6-6 and Marine-Grade Brass inserts". If it was me I'de pony up the extra cash and get this: https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/m5-complete-lower-receiver-fde-225 Its on sale this weekend, its all metal, its Aero, and it has way less chance of self destructing in your hand if something goes wrong.
  7. Do you know for sure that the TN arms lower will mate with the Aero upper? Unless you know FOR SURE do some checking before spending money. No milspec in the 308 AR world and manufacturers do whatever they please with specs.
  8. It changed since this afternoon.
  9. A good gunsmith that knows what he is doing will be able to headspace your bolt for you. You need to remove the ejector first.
  10. For me it was mask and paint it.
  11. I'm sure @98Z5V will wander in here at some point. He more than anyone else has the knowledge you are looking for. You might get pointed to an already existing thread to read for your answers or get info right here. LISTEN TO THE GUY! The Mantra with large frame ARs is "Don't complicate shiit with complicated shiit", heed it and you will be good to go. If this is a build from scratch rifle seriously consider getting the upper, lower, and BCG from the same manufacturer! There is no milspec for these large frames and any manufacturer can do anything they want with parts, at any time, and call it anything they they want. Getting those three parts from the same manufacturer (not retailer) will ensure that they all work well together. Aero Precision makes quality parts but with everything these days inventory can be hard to come by. Many guys here have used their stuff. Best of luck and hang around and read whatever interests you. your going to learn a lot.
  12. ......and putting a match to it!

  14. Its amazing how many people have waistlines twice as big around as their inseam is long.
