Gettin' Reti for a Yeti...... .358

Recommended Posts

Well boys n girls, it ain't anudder 308 but, same difference. Three hundred and fifty eight thousandths x 180 grains of shut the fuq up, hurled at about 2500-2600 FPS,  packed into an AR15. Dis gone be fun!! I've started to compile parts and rummage through my gun box. I was surprised to find just how much spare shyt I had already. So far we got: Aero Precision M4E1 upper and lower, Brigand 9" Blade (yeah I know), Ace ARFX stock (pulled from the PA10, PA10 will be getting a Magpul fixed rifle stock). Still to come: LaRue MBT-2S, PRI 6.8 mags, and an Armaspec SRS. I got a good bit of LC brass that'll need trimming and forming. I contacted the fella who sells the 358 kits and he says they should have more at the "end of winter". Now we wait. I'll keep ya'll posted.

I gotta say, these M4E1's are a great buy. Very nice set. Go Aero!

I'm to the point I'm just going to build some uppers for now and have been looking at this on and the Grendel.

Freezing my ass off in the garage smoking.

We need to come up with a 358 Yeti group buy when the barrels and bolts come available

I'm in for that - is that how we get them available again?  I'm down with it.  :thumbup:

Cut a .308 Win case DOWN, then neck it UP to .358", and it fires from a 5.56-based gun?!!?  Fuk yeah, I'm in...  :banana:

This is a 300BLK on fucking steroids...   :lmao:

Thats for sure.  As if I need another rifle to swat deer at the 50 yards or less range we get shots at around here.  But it would still be fun and I have an almost unlimited supply of 308 cases to play with. 

I do believe you cut the 308 case DOWN just below the shoulder, then neck the now almost straight walled case DOWN to .358

From what I've been able to find, you are exactly right.  And you fire this from a 5.56-based gun.  I'm all over this...   :laffs:  How the hell do we get a bolt strong enough, in a 5.56 gun, that will support a .308 case?!...  At this point, I don't care, I just want to build one, and make a Super 300BLK out of the damn thing...  :thumbup::hail:

500 Blackout is coming, too.  Just so you guys know.  It's a reality.  It's a done deal.  I'm just sayin'...
