|You know, DPMS makes an "AR-10" in .260 Rem...|
I have two .260 bolt guns now and the DPMS is on my wish list. I used the Rem 700 I have to take two deer this past season.
By the way Jbird, did you use that same screen name on AOL?
I was on AOL mostly back in the late 90s, I think I had a log on for a short period of time when I got my blacknerry, 2 years ago, but never used it.
I forgot about the .260, I believe someone still chambers the AR-10 in .243 Remington (I think it was one of the original chamberings for the rifle)
| The Creedmoor needs a 28" barrel to reach it's advertised 2900+ velocity|
Something I was concerned about, bbl. length, I am seriously thinking about an m1a1, but reports from the war state that these rifles are hard to move through tight spots quickly, so I will need a shorter barrel.
| For me, the AR-10 platform is too heavy,|
I agree, DPMS has their "hunter series" which I didn’t have time to look at the shot show, Equipped with Carbon Fiber to make the rifle lighter, to me it appears to be easier to break, I had my share of “fun” witch carbon fiber when I was trying to learn to fly remote control helicopter… I also have seen the AR-15 version… It’s Glued on. No.
I have a friend with a mill so I would have to have him lighten an aluminum hand guard and try to find a way to get rid of the resonance. I used to hunt with a man who was forced to carry his ar for deer due to a back injury. It was the only gun in his arsenal that didn’t hurt. This rifle was equipped with an aluminum free float tube that was LOUD when a small twig banged it. A rubber sleave later, it was better.
I appreciate the info folks, I may have to look at this super… for fun, and I put a lot of thought into a rifle chambered in 6mm br NORMA. But couldn’t afford the surgeon action and barrel I wanted. Not to mention the Accuracy international stock and nightforce optics. $6000 I think…
Looks like its back to the drawing board, the creedmore is out on bbl length, I am trying to get into this apple seed project service rifle deal and was hoping that I could run dual purpose. Might have to buy two guns…
AS far as the "black Goes... I duraCoat my ARs, One Is gray just to mix it up.
