If you want a long range AR, build a AR10, not a 6.5/6,8. Much cheaper and easier to find parts/ammo for


that requires an ar10 lower am I correct. I was thinking about building a .308 for long distance shots.

only reason I was considering a 9mm cause I have a ton of that at my house and I will probably just buy an ak47 for the 7.62x39mm.

all this is just speculation as I probably will only build one this year and it will be another 5.56 or a .300.

Correct. Worth it though.

The only pistol cal AR that I would build.

Exactly what I did.

I promote 300BLK heavily. Better for hunting and suppressing. Not good for SHTF situation if you are not already well supplied. In the end, still more realistic than the 5.56 though.

One could also be used for a .22 build. Just an idea.

i bought an M&P 15-22 for that but my old man called me today and wanted to know how much it would cost for me to build him an ar with one of my lowers I told him depends but right now 600-900 dollars but wait about a year and probably could around 400-600 depending on what he wanted.

he said da fuq I'll just keep shooting my lever .22lr with the 10 bricks of .22 I have at his house.

He has more of my shite in his gun safe than I do but then again he has a safe and all I have is a nice cabinet.

My dad is the same way. He likes the idea but will never spend the money on the AR platform. He has rifles that cost over 10k (civil war rifles that were handed down) but wont spend 1k on an AR.

I want one but hate that its a dedicated .22.
I would want one that I could plink with all day then swap to a hunting caliber for the ride back to the camp.

my dad hasn't bought a new rifle or shotgun since the mid 80's and he just bought 3 new pistols back around 2004.

most of mine are hand me downs from my great grandfather, grandfather, and my dad.

I have only bought 3 rifles and 2 pistols myself and one of the rifles I can't afford to shoot anymore (270 WSM) so it just sits in my dads safe but it sure is nice to look at.

I can actually shoot mine now but yeah its getting ridiculous finding ammo. This week cabelas has been good and if sportsman guide comes thourgh with my BO I wnat have to worry about .22 for awhile.

I was gonna get the 300 WSM but decided to go with the 270 WSM when I got it back in 2003.

when I do build my .300 I'll be in the same boat I saw some on gunbot the other day for $2+ cpr.

I have more than enough to last me a lifetime but that is far from enough. I wont shoot it for fun till I get more.

Not a bad price at all. I already have far too many alum mags though.

Yeah I have enough for a combat load for my 223 and for my 300, but extra to sell/barter with if the magazine ban ever comes into effect nationally never hurts.

I ordered two 10 packs. I have people asking me all the time to buy my PMags. I can atleast offer these to them instead. It's amazing how many people don't use the internet.
