Building a 308 from an idea I had...

Recommended Posts

Received LaRue trigger MBT2s.  That is all.  Had a ruckus with the wife over not keeping my 4th of July moratorium intact.  What's a battle without a few skirmishes.  Went looking for a .260 barrel,  $850--$900.  JP,  Bartlein,  any recco's??

Don’t go gettin yourself in trouble now.  I apologize for not having a recommendation, but I look forward to seeing the results.

Wilson Combat?  They just had a really good sale.  Might do it again for the 4th.

Yep, I have the Wlson Combat 20" Hunter barrel in mine, and it does fantastic.  It's alot cheaper than your stated barrel budget, too, ... so that should get you back on the good side with the Mrs...   :laffs:

I run my .308 Win brass straight through the RCBS .260 Rem sizing/depriming die, then turn the case necks, and toss it back in the tumbler.  No need to neck down to an intermediate size, then to .260.  Just go for it.

 Good.  Good side with the Mrs?  Hmm didn't know she had one,  a good side.  Oh,  now I see the rolling on floor laughing emoji.  True,  true.  Looking out for the Wilson barrel on sale.  Alright next question.  Does anyone sell small part kits where I don't need to spend a lot on a little.  I damaged the extractor retaining pin and it's like $2 for one plus shipping.  Any one offer kits?  I had the 308 firing retaining pin ( cotter pin,  not even trimmed to a point )  from my 308 go flying.  I did buy the push pin for a replacement,  but gee whiz you think the manufacturers could've tapered the cotter with a point.  I know,  nitpicking,  didn't sleep well last night.  I am seeing the value added by some makers to our rifles.  All these little steps that add up to a better platform.  Barrel next,  then on to BCG,  then the receiver.
