Re: 300 SAUM upper ordered from ASI
I do not think safety was an issue. I think the lack of sales was the issue. Cost of ammo , for the non-handloader would also be an issue. The increase in performance over the popular 308 and the 260 is only important to someone trying to hunt LR beyond say 500 yards. Paper shooting, a 308 can go 1000 yards easily. I think alot of people do not know the accuracy capability of a good AR. They are not typically going to out perform a custom bolt gun, but will keep rounds in the kill zone of most game animals. This should be a fun project!
