I know he was, but it was not mentioned in the OPs initial question, so its irreverent in the discussion.

Hummm, since you said "accurate to 800 to 1000 yards", I have to throw in the 6.5 Grendel in the AR15 platform, which is where the 300Whisper and 300AAC Blackout are. Neither of those two are accurate past about 100 yards. However, in an AR10 I'd pick the 260 over the 308. Just my two cents.

Well I'm a huge proponent of buy once cry once. Lots of guys here will tell you that x and y are just fine and I don't know what I'm talking about. That's fine but they are not running high round counts through their weapons every month, if you intend to shoot the weapon a lot buy the LMT with a chrome bore. It offers the best of everything because of the barrel change options.

If you just want a run of the mill rifle that may or may not have issues get one of the hobby guns like x and y. I cant even bring my self to write their names sorry. The LMT runs about 2500$

Well, I do agree that the large frame AR (either the AR10 or LR308/SR25 variants) is the choice to stick with when looking for an accurate semi-auto platform in the mid-to-long range...but to say that the Blackout or Whisper aren't accurate beyond 100 yards is COMPLETE BULL CRAP.

In fact, it's almost insulting to suggest that. There are different levels of accuracy that can be considered...but this platform is more than capable in the hands of people that know what they are doing.

I can't even believe I just read that.
