New and old to the AR platform

Hi Guys,

My 1st "black rifle" was an M16A1 in 1977 left over from NAM.  I was so put off by that POS JAMM-O-MATIC I volunteered to hump an M-60 instead.

I didn't even consider using or owning another AR until 2016 when the guys who run our 3-gun "zombie" shoot restricted the use of AK47s using Wolf ammo.

Soooo, I bought an AERO Precision M-4 just for that event.  I will admit I was pleasantly shocked at its reliability and accuracy.  Turns out some bugs have been worked out over the last 40-odd years.

Since that fateful day I have built an AR "pistol" and now an AR10 in .308 Win. My first choice was a .338 Federal but I had a set of .308 SB dies and no rifle chambered for that cartridge.

Anyways, I have many questions about hand loading, mangled and dented fired .308 brass and building these things so they function.
