Re: AR 15 platform

What about rule 3.1.2 which allows high powered semiautomatic military rifles in "as issued" form. Has 6.8 SPC or 6.5 Grendel been issued for general service anywhere in the world?

Re: Newbie Rifle Barrel Question

142 gr pushed with 4831. Run it at about 2650fps. It's a nice slow burning powder so you don't have the pressure problems you have with fast burning powders.

The decision for a new rifle is down to a Remington 700 SPS .308 26" heavy barrel; a Remington 700 SPS 7mm-08 24" barrel; or a Tikka T3 Lite in 7mm-08. Please list the pros and cons of each as you see them. It's a tough decision for me as the appeal of using the 700 in .308 for F-Class is something ...
