hey saint welcome back

hope all is going just as good as your post leads me to believe.glad to see you (and other gunshot folks about the site).lots new here.california has officially become fully crazy in its laws and over reaching authority while simultaneously, i near completion of my new 308 AR that will certainly be an "assault weapon" with the new year.hoping to make a kill with it before that though. sounds like i need to make it out texas way n do some hunting,since our public lands are so severely overpopulated these days....

Thanks Jay

It's good to get back to the site and talkin' w/ my buds w/o weeding through 100 posts of Chinese trash. One of these days I'm going to get a AR10 type. I guess it's a matter of whether I think I'll need a CQB or a longer engagement rifle. The .308 sure seems to have a more wide spectrum of ability though.
If you ever do make it out this way, let me know. I'll try to set you up with a hunt.

AR10 type vs AR15.
after building my first small platform AR,i instantly wanted a hunting caliber ar,so i dumped my other a r15 billet set to get started on the big 308 ar.after all the bs with parts availability,as well as parts interchangeability issues with the 308 type (dpms,armalite,SR25 )all being similar but not the same really can be somewhat confusing,without even taking into consideration rail height changes (dpms) and rail height compatibility of hand guards etc.A standard AR15 seems to make more sense to me for a multi use rifle.the 15 is lighter,is standardized,lower cost (generally),has a much higher parts availability,and nowadays comes in so many calibers,or can be made to accept many calibers well suited for hunting or long range shooting beowulf,264LB/6.5 grendel,6.8 spc to name a few,and although expensive or labor intensive winchester super short magnum WSSM cartridges can be used in a small platform AR.my advice would be start with the 15 if you arent married to the idea of 308 or similar loads,my mega upper and lower with internals
only,and no barrel or furniture weighs almost as much as my complete AR15 with heavy barrel.

You know, 6.8SPC sounds pretty good. Probably more latitude on that one. Course, if I want to take SHTF/zombie apocalypse situation into consideration, ammo availability would be an issue. I guess I'd have to weigh out how much probability I'd give to that.
