AR10 300 SAUM Deer

Shot this deer with the Accuracy Systems INC 300 SAUM upper at 120 yards with the 165 Hornady SST IL. It dropped in its tracks.

Re: AR10 300 SAUM Deer

Very nice... where did you source a barrel, or is this an Armalite/DPMS version?


--Edit to add: Saw your post that the upper is from Accuracy Systems. Nice guys. Did you find any other manufacturers of barrels that suited your tastes besides this company? Lastly would you recommend them then for someone that has a .308 already for them to open it up to perform a retrofit?

sneedb82,

if you want a magnum caliber, you will need a complete upper and lower. You can watch the gun adds and occasionally find a DPMS 300 saum for sale. Otherwise, you will need to ask the smith to build a complete rifle. I already had the complete rifle from DPMS, so I just got the upper. The DPMS complete rifle shot well with the 20" barrel, but I wanted the 24" barrel, plus the brake. The rifle in the picture kicks like a 223 Rem.
