R25/LR308 Buffer Springs

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to this AR .308 stuff, but I would talk to the guy that sells the "Heavy Buffers" over on the AR15 forum, in the AR10 section.  He has heavy buffers and different spring setups.  For HOT ammo, you could try some COR-BON ammo, all their ammo is loaded up pretty high.  The specialize in HOT ammo.

Your standard buffer & spring in your rifle should handle any .308 ammo out there , with out changing them .

Some use specialized buffers for a lot of different reasons . Some say its the only way to get the rifle to function correctly .

If your rifle doesn't function with the std. buffer /spring set up ,be it rifle length or carbine system (with the proper buffer & spring ) there is some thing not right right with the way the rifle was manufactured or a combination of components that are not with in spec's.

Some rifles are tight out of the factory & need a proper break in to function properly.

Some have tight or rough chambers ,right from the factory ( I would put that into out of spec. category)

This should not be , coming from a factory rifle , shows poor quality control in my book.

You can change buffers & springs for a particular load or ammo , but that may bring you into the realm of it may not function the action with other loads or ammo .
