New 308 AR owner


Recommended Posts

I'm new to AR type rifles but have been an avid hunter, shooter and hand loader for almost 40 years.  I mainly shoot bolt action rifles and fallen in love with Savages.  I like to tinker and swap barrels on my Savages.  I also like long range shooting. 

I recently purchased an inexpensive FEDARM FR-10 308 AR off of Gunbroker.com to hunt pigs with.  I ultimately plan to put a night-vision site on it and may add a suppressor at some point.  The gun functions well and is fairly accurate.  Most of the loads I've tried have grouped in the 1.5 MOA range or better.  I haven't been able to consistently break the 1 MOA barrier yet but I think with more load development I'll get there. 

ARs seem to be a tinker's dream or nightmare depending on your point of view.  I want to keep this thing inexpensive but that is proving to be difficult. I've already received a great deal of excellent advice on this forum and I've ordered a LaRue 2-stage trigger, recoil pad, heavy buffer and buffer spring.  It probably won't bee too long before I replace the barrel.

I hope I don't ask you guys too many stupid questions.
