    How important is gas length in a 308?

    The guy that had the mid gas barrel listed sold it. SO now I'm pretty much set on the Faxon 18" heavy fluted barrel. Just gotta save up for it.

    Wasn't planning to tune it the way I did my 3gun rifle. I just want it to work and be reliable.

    How important is gas length in a 308?

    My 3gun AR is an Adams Arms piston gun. Low mass operating system, adj GB, adj JP silent captured spring, the works. But it's a race gun tuned specifically for my ammo. I want this to be a hunting rifle and range toy. Don't want to tune it as much.
  4. I know in AR15's the longer gas systems make the gun shoot softer when tuned. We tune the crap out of our 3gun rifles. How much of a difference does it make in a 308 rifle? I ask because a guy is selling a Faxon 308 18" mid length heavy barrel with a fairly low round count. (under 1000) The cost is under 1/2 of new. If I buy new, I'd get the 20" heavy fluted Faxon http://faxonfirearms.com/match-series-18-heavy-fluted-308-win-5r-416r-nitride-nickel-teflon-extension/ Or the Criteron M110 20" heavy barrel http://www.fulton-armory.com/barrelfatitan20nmm110ss1x12875gasblockthreaded.aspx The used barrel is listed at $100 shipped

    AR Trigger

    Ya, that was a bit of a necropost. Didn't realize it was a pinned post, just saw it at the top. I should have payed more attention.

    HIPERFIRE

    The Hiperfire is all I use in my rifles. I have a pseudo 23E. I bought one of the original 24C's, and had it NiB coated. Have 6Kish rounds on it in my 3gun AR.

    AR Trigger

    Hiperfire 24C. Run that trigger in every rifle I own.

    Warne Ramp Mount

    Honestly depends on the person. Using that height of a mount, I have the cheek riser on my PRS stock up a few clicks to get me were I want to be.
  9. I have. They are on the other coast. I looked at them a while back. Was planning to buy from them, but got a really good deal on from a friend. He was getting together parts for a build, had about 60% of the parts, and won decided not to build the rifle since he already had a 308 bolt gun. I picked up the parts from him pretty cheap. Another friend that works at Praestlor Arms is helping me with the rest of the build.

    Warne Ramp Mount

    I also built my AR15 with the plan to shoot DMR/SPR matches. That's part of why I am now building a 308 rifle. It's just netter suited for those ranges. (out to 660)

    Warne Ramp Mount

    I shoot Open Division which allows me to have a scope and an offset red dot. I have been running higher powered optic for a while. A couple of the big name sponsored shooters have been as well. Many are starting to see the advantage on some of the longer stages. We don't need 1 power like the other divisions do.
  12. I am building with the help of a friend that works at a local gun manufacturer. He is WAY more knowledgeable that I am. He's basically telling me to give him the specs I want, and he'll get the parts and help me build it. He already has most of the parts I want, just deciding on barrel now.
  13. Pretty normal. Even with good QD mounts, it's not always perfect when you put the scope back on. Just put it on and leave it on. Get a good set of offset sights, like the MagPul MBUS Pro's. Then use them without taking the scope off. Much better option anyways.

    Spotting scope tripod recommendations

    I picked up a camera tripod from a local camera shop for around $40. I've been using it for years. I don't worry as much about weight though.

    Bushnell 1x4x24 scope

    I had one of these and the 1-4x24 PCL FFP scope. Both were good, I preferred the FP version. Used it for 3gun for about a year while I saved up for better glass. Only issue I see with these is that they are getting behind the times. 1-6 seems to be the standard now, and things are moving towards 1-8. The Vortex Strike Eagles and good entry level optics.
