Ar-10 MEGA BUILD

Thinking out side the box for this one. 500 to 1000yard range for large game hunting. 24" to 26"inch match barrel. caliber considerations .338 fed,7mm-08 maybe some others . need to know what will fit in a standard 10 round ar-10 mag and give me the best accuracy and knock down power. any info would be helpful. thanks

Are you asking bullet weights?

My friend built a long distance thumper on the ar10 platform. He chambered his in .300 wsm and has had great results. Might be something to look into.

Re: Ar-10 MEGA BUILD

I thought about build a mega, they look very nice, maybe next time. If your going for distance you should look into the Aadmount for a scope mount. I got one last week (You can find it in this AR15/10 Rifle thread somewhere). Anyway I was truly impressed. For longer ranges as you are talking about you don't want a cheap scope mount.

My 300 SAUM has sent 210s VLDs at about 2900fps, but I'm currently shooting the 190 VLDs at around 2915-2920 from a 24" 1:10 twist.
You'll need someone like Accuracy Systems out of Colorado to do the build for you, otherwise you're going to have serious issues sourcing a bolt to use.

I've taken mine out to a mile on sub MOA steel plates.
I'm also running an AADMOUNT and would agree that it's an awesome optic mount, but I don't believe that in a semi-auto platform, recoil is ever an issue unless you're using pure junk.
Recoil on a bolt action is 10x more violent than with a semi auto, but that doesn't mean you should cut corners on your optics or mounts.
