You dont want to look at this
LMT .308 MWS Pictures show us your setup - M4Carbine.net Forums
They sure look good. What I notice is the smooth look that it has compared to the DPMS and Colts that I have been looking at.

I forgot about the CM901 but its not built with precision in mind, that's not saying it will not do it. One thing that's standard on colt rifles is scratches from the factory. They are one of the best companies out there but they seam to have a lot of handling marks when it get to you the user.

What about the LWRC REEPER with the 20" barrel better than the LMT I do believe but that is just my .02 but the 6.5 Creedmore suggestion is another good choice!

They cost more and they had a lot of issues!

I just have to ask, where did you hear that the 300 whisper/blackout were not accurate past 100m at?

Hummm, my bad. I can't honestly prove their accuracy. I know with the slow speeds, to shoot 800 to 1000 yards you'd need quite the holdover! Remember, the guy was talking about that range; I threw out 100 in error. I also think most 300 AACs are set up as close range rifles; ie. with very short barrels, very low magnification scopes,if any, sub-sonic. I wouldn't personally try it at 800 to 1000 yards. Why? I think some of you are missing the posters point: he wants to shoot accurately out to 800 to 1000 yards. I will own up to my error about accuracy at 100 yards; but my point was I don't believe it's accurate at 800 to 1000 yards. Qualify accurate? Minute of angle? More? Less? Help the guy out, he wants an 800 to 1000 yard accurate AR rifle and cartridge. Again, I will stand up and say I don't believe the whisper is it.
