Re: help me build my AR-15
well i want to keep you guys updated. the same place i "rented" the 338 from got another one in .308 with a very similar setup that they let me test out. the scope on the .338 cost over $1500 and was a leupold something or another. i dont know what the magnification was on that thing but it was up there. the .308 that i tested had some old bushnell 12x scope on it. i still made 3 inch groups which is pretty darn good considering that i could only just barely see the target at that range with the scope that was on it. im thinking the .308 will be plenty accurate enough. it will be plenty light on my wallet to shoot comparable to the .338 as well as easier on my shoulder. that damn lapua packs a wallop! in my honest opinion i believe that if both the .308 and .338 had the same scopes that i could shoot almost exactly the same with both because its aweful hard to hit a target that you can barely see.
