    Good point on the cash to burn comment, my thought would be though use the extra cash that the Rem 700 would cost you on your scope. I like the accu-trigger for the easy of adjustment, but I have heard that the new triggers on the mod 10's are very good. I remember the old school triggers from savage that were awful....

    For those who are now looking for my little thing on building your own AR here it is.

    For a .308 I'd stick with a bolt action (Rem or Savage at the low end) or if you like mag fed I'd go with a Springfield rifle. The AR-15 .308's are not worth the bang for the buck by any means. With the Springfield you can customize the Socom's and the Loaded's to have all your fancy gadgets to look high speed like the AR's. It's just a better operating system for that caliber.

    For me... I have a Rem 700 PSS with a nice Leupold scope for precision or long range shooting. Sub 1/2" MOA right out of the box with no modification. Training puts you below that as does minor modifications. For quick target aquisition at shorter ranges I have the M4gery in .223 that looks purty like the one you got pictured above. (Exception is the Aimpoint in lieu of scope etc.)

    Forgot... if you're set on an AR in .308 then build it yourself. I built my AR and it is a blast. Frustrating at times without the right tools, but still a blast.

    Save yourself a **** load of money and get a Saiga .308 and put a scope on it. I've got one in 7.62 X 39 and it's accurate as hell with that short barrel, only cost me $260 shipped, NIB.

    Have a great Kenpo day

    Neildo don't feel bad I thought the same thing.

    Abusivemelon ,
    What do I intend to use this sucker for? Good question.
    I don't hunt anymore so thats out. I love shooting targets so it will deffinatly be used for target practice. I like the look cool factor of it and I want to start collecting more firearms and figure like shotguns, their fun to build and modify and play around with.
    You buy guns so you can modify them. You want to start a collection. Are you loaded (Pun not intended) or obsessed?

    So basically target practice and LCF.
    Noice. So you wear body armour now? Bloody rednecks.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Already shooting a Remmington M700 PSS with 10x leupold scope.
    I think I might switch to a 4-9x or something though since the bush were I go doesn't have very many open shooting areas.

    I'm really tempted to build my own AR10 type set up both for the money I would save and fun behind doing it myself. Only draw back is I don't know where to start looking for parts, what gun companies are the best to use or order from etc..

    Have a few already. Just looking at having a little more fun with them.

    Not sure where you would get recievers for upper and lower. However if anyone would have it Brownells. I would give you a link but I am at work....they dont like it when I surf gun parts at work.....Cheaper then dirt carries AR-15 stuff also Midway, Midsouth. Google these and you should be in like flynn

    Have fun with the AR-10 they are neat toys.

    My Leupold is a Vari X lll with mil dot reticle. It comes with 4x-10x and holds the point of impact consistant throughout. Your cheaper scopes don't do that for ****. Also has a BDC but you don't need all that for what your after. Just a nice piece of glass is worth the investment.

    My favorite site is http://www.adcofirearms.com/ but not sure how much they have in the way of AR-10. Go to AR-15.com and check this forum: http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=3&f=62


    Have fun with your AR-10 Build.

    Olympic Arms, Bushmaster, and Armalite all make such beasts.

    Bushmaster also offers a few models in the 6.8 mm SPC caliber as well, and if you really want something big bore, they even have the .450 Bushmaster caliber.

    If anything, check out their site:

    http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/

    And yes, they do listen to those surveys. If they came out with one chambered for the 7.62x39, that would be a load of fun.
