re: Official AR-15 thread - LSUfreak1459
The strike eagle is a good scope. You can step up to the viper PST 1-4 for $400 with a PEPR mount. I ordered it the other day but it was $350 at that time. [link=(http://www.brownells.com/optics-mounting/scopes/rifle-scopes/viper-pst-1-4x24mm-tmcq-with-mount-prod107575.aspx)]Brownells[/link]...

Great deal on Viper PST 1-4 - LSUfreak1459
Just ordered this for my 300 BLK. $350 for viper pst 1-4 and PEPR mount. Figured I'd share the great deal with the OB [link=(http://www.brownells.com/optics-mounting/scopes/rifle-scopes/viper-pst-1-4x24mm-tmcq-with-mount-1-4x24mm-illum-tmcq-moa-w-pepr-mount-sku100-025-289-107575-206754.aspx)]LINK[/l...

re: duck season interesting read from up north... - LSUfreak1459
I agree with everything you said. I believe the decreasing number of hunters on private land creates a safe haven for the birds. Every year I know where the birds will be, and I'm always tempted to ask permission to hunt. Though last year was one of the best years I can remember. We are still killin...

Never shot the Creedmore so I can't comment. I know after I shoot a box with my 300WM you don't really want to touch the barrel. ...

re: Advice on Browning X-bolt - LSUfreak1459
Yep. It was Chris Kyle's caliber of choice. Manageable recoil with excellent long distance performance. Watched a video the other day of someone shooting Javelina's with the NEMO 300 WM. That is my dream rifle. ...

re: Advice on Browning X-bolt - LSUfreak1459
Yea a 30-06 will drop him dead all the same. I wouldn't hesitate to use one. I know one guy who has used a 270 all his life and has killed over 20 elk and never lost one. Shot placement means more. I think the 300WM is just a great round. One I like to have in my arsenal. ...

re: Advice on Browning X-bolt - LSUfreak1459
I agree that a 30-06 will do the job. The 300WM is the most popular elk round though, according to those in the northwest at least. When I bought my 300WM I kept hearing the horror stories from everyone but the first time I went to the range I shot a box of ammo. It's not nearly as bad as some think...

re: Advice on Browning X-bolt - LSUfreak1459
Good luck! I went to the Idaho panhandle last year for elk. It was my first time and I had a blast. Saw more whitetail and mule deer sitting on a stump. Only saw 1 spike and couldn't get the shot off as he was in some brush but I still wouldn't have traded that experience for anything. With the rece...

re: Thinking about adding Makita 18v LXT line to my tool collection - LSUfreak1459
I prefer Makita over Dewalt. The only tool I will never own from Dewalt is their sawzall. Any sawzall with that latch on the side for the blade change is junk. It will go out and it wont take long. Personally I have found Makita and Milwaukee to outlast Dewalt. All of my makita is the LXT line. I...

re: rifle/pistol range around Baton Rouge - LSUfreak1459
I don't need a range either, as we have our own range at the camp. I was in the mood to shoot this weekend but the plans changed and we are going to BR. Sherbune is a little farther than I wanted to travel. Just looking for a close place to pop in on Saturday morning. How is FRC? I looked on the...

rifle/pistol range around Baton Rouge - LSUfreak1459
So I'll be heading to visit the in-law's this weekend in Baton Rouge. Any good rifle/pistol range around? I've gone to precision before and would prefer to go somewhere else. Preferably outdoor with a longer rifle range than 25 yards but if not I'll just shoot pistols. ...

re: Official AR-15 thread - LSUfreak1459
Purchased a complete AR10 lower from PSA that was on sale this weekend. Looking to start building the upper. I have read AR10's are a little harder to get things to fit from different companies. I figured I'll buy a PSA stripped upper and their upper parts kit. What do I need to do to make sure I ge...

re: Official AR-15 thread - LSUfreak1459
Yea i know if I make it a pistol I need a new lower. Mainly looking for a good hog/coyote gun, or throw in the boat when working on the ducks ponds to shoot nutra's and what not. Also would like it on the range. I have other options to use like my 223 or the 300BLK I'm building for the boat scenario...

re: Official AR-15 thread - LSUfreak1459
Prop, I've decided to continue with the 300BLK build. But will be converting another 556 to a 6.5 Grendel. Debating whether to order another lower and make it a 12"' pistol or go with a rifle barrel. What would you say is the range on a 6.5 Grendel in terms of accuracy and hitting power? The farthe...

re: Official AR-15 thread - LSUfreak1459
Thanks, appreciate it. Could you point me in the direction of what buffer system I would need for a 6.5 Grendel pistol build?...
