Hello all, I am a new member as of a week ago. Been shooting all my life, bought a precision rifle 12 years ago and that got me into reloading as well. Since I have a .308 platform already, I decided to build an AR in .308, didn't have a clue what parts were even needed. Well with all the chaos I ended up scrambling to get parts and wait weeks for parts as well. In the process I ordered some wrong parts as well and had to settle for what I could get. Nice thing about the AR as I can always change parts later. So far I have had lots of help with my questions.

My background in a quick breakdown was, grew up hunting in Wisconsin, NFO in the Navy based in Florida, then AZ, MN back to WI. as a civilian in the aviation industry for 20 years, working as a Aircraft technician then a pilot for corporations. Pretty much if it has to do with Aviation I have done it. That career has also moved me to Alaska and LA. Not the liberal LA but Louisiana. Back in Wisconsin now probably until retirement. I have hunted Grizzly and Moose, wild hogs, wolves and Whitetail. I also have an IR set up for my TRG-22 platform that I want to start hunting coyotes. My career keeps me gone a lot, so when I do have time for my shooting hobby I have to hit the ground running, then it's back to work. When I am not flying I am working on aircraft still. Plus the company I work for also has me doing things for them other than aviation. Anyone interested just ask for more info. At some point hopefully I can research more of the forums. I have purchased through some of the vendors on here.

Welcome from Arkansas. I used to fly right seat in a C-45 so the pilots could get their flight hours in. One flight in particular was memorable. The others, not so much.

25 years I have some interesting stories and places. But like any job, it has its boring times as well. Thanks for the welcome.

Great Intro, welcome to the forum, we have a very very diversified crew here and pretty much the best minds anywhere on the 308 and other large caliber AR,s

That's great, because the only knowledge I have on the AR is from you guys. Definitely a different tool.
