Not New to 7.62, Mostly New to AR10


Recommended Posts

first experience with 308/7.62 was when i was issued one at MCRD in 1964. carried one around for the next 4 years, sometimes replaced with a 1911A1 or a Blooper combination. Finest rifle i ever fired, all of mine were Remington built. Only fired it full auto once, that was enough. Qualified with it at Camp Matthews at the 200,300, and 500 yard firing lines.


never liked the AR particularly until about 4 years ago, the beta model M16 was responsible for many needless deaths in sunny SE Asia, and i was prejudiced and loathed the thing. fortunately they never got my M14 away from me.


have built several Ar15 over the last couple of years, in 5.56 and 6.8, pieced together an AR10 from PSA which isn't a great looker but shoots straight. recently bought a Mega Arms Maten upper and lower, put an 18" barrel in it, no rail on this one - just D ring and mid length hand guards. will likely take it out tuesday and run some IMI thru it.


kinda looking for reload data using IMI brass and Milspec bullets.


anyway, here i am, and will proceed to read. thanks

I like it.

Please do a range report when possible.

How much does it weigh and what length is the barrel ....




I see from the other post it's an 18 inch barrel.




just a guess, but in the 7 pound range, i'll run some IMI thru it and report with pix
