Re: help me build my AR-15
I picked up a 338 fed AR-10 Armalite last year. Listed for 1900, i got it from local gun shop for 1650. Super heavy compared to stag 6.8, but we (family members) killed 3 moose, several caribou, and a couple bear with it over the last 6 months and happy enough with the gun for hunting within 500 yards. Gun dead on at 100 yards, one of the moose was 400 yards, aimed at backbone, hit in kill zone, so I figure it dropped 8-10 inches as a rough estimate with 210 nosler partitions. AR-10 has 21 inch barrel, but they are offering a shorter barrel, 18 inches; thinking about another purchase.
AIG has a nice AR-10 video, I think it's on the AR-15 dvd as an extra, but well worth getting, at least it was for me.
I'd like to get a 338 lapua myself, just don't know enough about what's the best way to go, so I keep using my 30-378 which I think is comparable.
