The can on this rifle attaches to a QD flash hider, but they have a break attachment as well. I don't use the YHM Phantom much anymore, I usually have a Thunderbeast 30BA mounted...but I never shoot without the suppressor anyway.

It looks a little different now, optic swap and new cerakote but this baby has been so fun to shoot it's scary...and the new SAUM upper I've got getting worked on will be off the chain!

deer, antelope. The 7.62 just because, and the .358 for hogs (and bear LOL).
These along, with my AR-15, should cover all my needs for centerfire rifles. But since I am new to AR's (old with M-1, M14) I am uneasy about swapping uppers. I am tempted to build two lowers and keep the 7mm always together permanently, for accuracy reasons, swapping only the 7.62 and the .358. The cost of the extra lower might be better spent on a better scope, if I was sure that swapping the upper has little or no effect on accuracy of the unit.

Build 1 bullet proof lower and have at it. I have 3 lowers and 9 AR uppers of various chamberings. Works great. I prefer the OP4 side charging uppers. better fit, finish and much more accurate IMHO.

I went to work on hand loads this year, arriving at some impressive results. A nosler 168gr silver tip over 41 grs of IMR 3031 printed a 3 shot group at less than .25 moa. Needless to say I was ecstatic. Trigger is terrible but for a production gun it far exceeded my expectations. At just over a grand it cost a lot less than my custom bolt gun.

Put a CMC drop in trigger (3.5-4 lbs) in her and you will love it. 168$
