That's for sure, I try to give my equipment lots of love, but it don't always work.  I'm wondering where you are gonna put that little bitty hand guard?? another .260...

anyway, I hope the Guntec Dude will take his hand guard back, I really like Wilson's 10, 2, and 6 row of 2 beveled stainless screws, and I like the longer barrel nut supporting the hand guard if you actually hang stuff on it.  I'm trying to build the small frame 300 as close to the .308 as I can, I was blown away the first time I picked up the large frame Tactical Hunter, it was 1/3 lighter than anything else I had handled, and points like a 20 guage Merkle over and under.

That (now to be delivered) 12" TRIM rail will go on the 16" .358 Win AR that I'm brewing up right now, with WC's barrel .  Aero M5 receivers, BCG is already here, some Athlon 1~6 or 1~8 scope in mils (meals, in NC)...   :thumbup::lmao:

This one right here, in the Ranger profile...

I like that, and I'm still kicking my own Azz for NOT buying a .338 Federal complete upper, they had them priced at $825, I was planning on swapping a 6.5 Creed barrel on, but NO, I had to dither that deal all the way to hell and back, clicked on one day, and "Gone ZO!"

that's a billet upper receiver, BCG, barrel, and charging handle! I do love their barrels, beautiful machine work, now thats gonna be a little "butt kicker", may kick your butt a little too?? or not

also takes our favorite "intermediate" gas tube!

That hand guard is going to make that rifle in the looks dept, its gonna be awesome!

The .338 Fed 16" gun shoots a little "softer" than the .308 Win 16" gun does - and I set them up indentically...  Weird, I know.  We'll see on the .358 Win 16" gun.

That's neat, and I would have built the 300 in 16" if they had the Tactical Hunter profile in 16", also Wilson makes it a point to remind people that their 300 velocity ratings are with an 18" barrel... and they recommend a little grease under each of those little screw bevels to keep them from seizing over time.

I did wimp out and buy one of those "Limb Saver" snap on recoil pad's from Wilson, I used to weigh about 215 until I had a heart attack and triple bypass about 12 years ago, now I'm down to about 160, but I've lost a LOT of padding, but more importantly "muscle mass". In any regard, it does help a lot more that you might expect...

Know the GunTec owner. He get a lot of parts made on the Eastern coast of Asia. Some of the parts are awesome !

Yep, China stuff is everywhere, the Gun Tec is several steps down from the Wilson Combat, but a very close knock off!
