    This will be a great forum, as I am also starting to get into The AR platform, as well as the LR bolt guns that I have shot for years! I really enjoy my bolt guns, but lately started working on the two AR's that I own. I'm looking at getting a third. This new AR forum with be of tremendous help, as it has been over the years for my bolt guns.

    Thanks Len!

    Len all the comments about the 1/2" groups are correct but what hasn't been said is that the wildcat calibers available for the AR 15 lower come pretty close to matching the .308 and in some cases are better as they offer more BC efficient choices of bullets to reload and you are accopmlishing this without the added weight of the AR 10 size platform. They do give bolt guns a run for their money so it really comes down to the shooter that makes the difference the way I see it. The other advantage is that you really aren't using anymore powder than if you were loading for the 5.56 only getting better performance.

    RamBowMike, that's a serious "fun gun" ! I like it ! But, a question for you; what kind of oil is in the Windex bottle and what do you spray with it? The bolt carrier?

    I keep Rem oil in the windex spray bottle and keep my bolt carrier well lubed using only (Pro-Shot Zero Friction) It's a premium ultra high tech synthetic lubricant. It's the best stuff to use on moving parts. I don't ever use grease.

    Thaks, RamBowMike, but now I want some of the synthetic oil. Where do you get it? And what's the Rem oil for; just general lubing?

    The Rem oil is to wipe down all exterior metal parts such as the bi-pod, and the barrels of my other firearms. It's superior to W-D 40.
    The Pro-Shot synthetic oil can usually be purchased at your favorite gun store or google search for Pro-Shot Zero Friction Synthetic oil.
