Re: New AR15 sub-forum because 73% of LRH Poll respondents own or plan to own an AR1
Wasn't able to start a new thread in this section, AR's is something I'm quite familiar with and have built them in 17 Rem, 204 Ruger, 223, 6.5 Grendel (and 264 LBC), and also a few 300 Whispers.
I have three niches I use these rifles for, a heavy barreled 223 or 204 Ruger (20-24" bbls) for varmints, a good lightweight 6.5 Grendel (18-20" bbls) for deer, and a lightweight 223 (18" bbl, .675" gas block) for calling coyotes. And then there's the AR10's...heavier, not as handy, but I've built them in 260, 7mm-08, and 308. Was looking at the mags the other day and I think I might be able to get one to work in 284, but that's a future project.
I have wanted to fool around with the 6mm AR's, but haven't gotten around to picking up a reamer or dies.
Len, since they're so similar, how about an AR15/10 forum???
