/k/, why are Armalite AR-10s not more popular? Are the SR-762s / Sig 716s worth the extra money?

Anonymous 05/25/14(Sun)19:18 UTC+1 No.21317800 Report

I bought and sold my AR-10 a long time ago. The problem with the dad of the AR-15 is it takes some time investment to use the rifle to it's full capabilities and then you realize all the good .308 loads are a dollar a round in a semi auto. The novelty wears off quickly and it is literally too much gun for too little value.
>>
silentboob 05/25/14(Sun)19:27 UTC+1 No.21317906 Report

Can you elaborate on the time investment? I already reload .308 so I'm not terribly concerned about ammo prices.

iirc, there are two version of the Armalite AR-10, one that takes proprietary mags and the other one can take p-mags. I don't know if that matters to you, but you should probably figure out which one you really want before buying one.

Yeah I already read up on them and decided on the AR-10A for that reason should I decide to get one.

Been trying to decide an a semi .308 for months now and I'm still weighing options. Still a good while until deer season though.

The 716's not exactly lightweight, but my buddy's got one in a long range configuration. With a suppressor and Nightforce F1 with a horus reticle, and bipod, that thing weighs a fuckload.

IMO I'd go with an LMT 308... It seems like the most bang for the buck. As a DI 308 it also has minimal problems too.

Yea, but for him, the mr762 works best. Like I said, he only runs it suppressed and hand loads for it, loading only one bullet into the chamber each time for some reason. The LMT would no doubt be a good gun though.

RustedBucket 05/25/14(Sun)20:11 UTC+1 No.21318397 Report

The price of .308 is a large factor, as is the price of the platform itself. 5.56 kills paper just as dead as .308.

Then refer to this:(dubya,dubya, dubya,dot)wilsoncombat(com)/68project.htm Just get a really high quality 6.8 spc upper and you'll actually save money. It's right at 1k for an upper and you'll have really familiar lower controls. If you're like me and you only shoot your deer hunting rifles when you're sighting them in and killing a deer, then you can do the same thing with this upper and not really worry about the cost of the round. I'm thinking about doing this too, except I would hate to neglect all of my really nice deer rifles. I've already got a nice trigger in my AR, so I would just throw this upper on when I'm going out hunting.

Yea, it really makes the most sense, at least to me. Apparently it's a great round for deer hunting and I really like the idea of having the AR15 familiarity by just swapping out uppers. Plus, Wilson Combat is top notch. And to top it all of, like I said in my previous post, it's the cheapest option.

The NightForce stuff is top notch. I've put a lot of rounds down range with that setup I mentioned earlier and I've hit 800yds up to 1000 with it. He's got another gun in an oddball caliber that I forget the name of that's completely consistent out to farther than 1000. He's got his range setup to over a mile.

I really like the looks of NF, although I have yet to look through one. I may still consider one if I can find it lightly used, but that's a lot to spend on a scope when I may only get a chance to push out past 500 yds a couple times a year. I would probably never stretch that scope out to its limits.

Yea, but it's my understanding that SFP is better at the really long ranges that he shoots at because the reticle stays the same size.

What the fuck are you talking about? I have considered 6.5, and it sounds like 6.5 is better at long ranges, but I'm not trying to snipe a deer at 1000 yards.

He must be loading some really heavy ass bullets then. I ran into the same problem with my AR15 and I can only handload up to 77gr SMKs and still be able to seat them inside a mag. Anything heavier (like the 80/90gr ones) and I'd have to do what he's doing and load them into the chamber one at a time.

.264 cal bullets are more plentiful and better optimized for hunting (look at 6.5x55 Swedish). You can load heavier game bullets in a 6.5 than 6.8.
6.5 was designed to take whitetail deer. 6.8 is optimized to take kebab

I didn't really imply that one was better than the other, or at least I didn't try to. I currently hunt with a 7mm mag, but I've hunted dear with .223 and .243 too. I'm not saying that 6.5 is bad by any means, but I just made the personal decision to go with 6.8. Plus, if hogs show up, you can pop them too. I've gotten to use somebody's suppressed sbr 6.8 and that thing was a beast.
