AR10 discussion

Recommended Posts

I am by no means a stranger to building my own rifles. Ive got two SBR’s I built from the ground up, and two standard AR platform rifles as well. That being said I have never built an AR 10 and was actually completely unaware about the potential for tolerance differences, part compatibility, etc. So thanks for bringing that up Garufa! I learnt somethin today!

Since you ask, a suppressor used with a supersonic load can still muffle the sound of the detonation even though it doesn't work on the supersonic crack.

Exactly.

It can also add a bit of speed over the same load fired unsuppressed,

You need to add velocity to an unsuppressed .308 Winchester? Why not just switch calibers to a .300 WinMag

 and a good suppressor added to the right gun/ load combination can actually improve the groups.

I mean no disrespect to you, but how would you explain that? Doing anything to a barrel could change the grouping, but that would be just by luck. How would hanging a suppressor on the end of a .308 barrel increase the accuracy of a quality .308 rifle?

A suppressor also works to make both the audible and visual signature of the shot more difficult to pin down.

That would be important...if that was a concern.

As far as the original observation, that someone who primarily intends to shoot 308 subsonic would be better served by 300 blk, I largely agree. When limiting to subsonic loads, the 300 blk case is more efficient and can be had in a smaller, lighter rifle while not giving up any energy to the 308 (again, when both are shot at the same speed).

Absolutely a 300 BLK is giving up energy compared to a .308. I’ve never seen anyone try to compare the energy and velocity of a .300blk to a .308 Winchester. Have You? I’m not saying the .300 blk isn’t a good round, it is; for its application.

What Tom said and, it can help suppress recoil as well.

If there is any way you could up you budget slightly, the Colt CM762 seems like a very solid option at a good price.

LE901 is even better

      Hello,
      I am new to shotguns and just received mine, but I am uncertain which ammo I need for home self defense.
      I was trying to get through the jungle of different ammunition, but it is impossible.
      Can someone please tell me which I need? 
      Maybe brand , # Shot, oz, FPS.
      Thank you very much.

      Anyone here tried one yet?
      I have an 18" 6.5mm that may very well get converted if the new Hornady cartridge proves out.

      Picked up a couple lever guns recently.  Here is the first one.

      Looks like a standard Marlin 336 in 30-30 with a ugly scope and see thru rings.  First off I took the scope and rings off.  I do need to find plugs so the screws don't stick up.  The reason this is an oddball is because this model was only made for about 3 years from late '79 till about '83.  This is a Marlin 375 in .375 Winchester.  You just do not see many of these around anymore.  One of the nice things about .375 Winchester is that you can also shoot Buffalo Bore .38-55 in it.



       
      The next one is a Marlin 336 but in .44 Mag.  I also picked up a Ruger Redhawk in .44 Mag to go with the Marlin.
