It is on the list to change. Thanks.
I got an opportunity to handle a DPMS LR 308 with a Magpul PRS stock a few weeks ago. I loved the adjustments and how it balanced the rifle, at $200 well worth the investment. But, it did make an already heavy rifle heavier. I wouln't want to lug it up a mountain side. That said I will be picking one up soon.

    I picked up the PRI 20 MOA base when Midway had them back in stock. I need to order a mount adapter for a Harris bipod I already have, too. I'll take the Vortex Crossfire 30mm to the ranch the next time I get home and can go zero, just in case the Bushnell 4200 won't get me to where I want to be. Fortunately, both have illuminated reticles for low light since hogs are my usual game of choice. I'll be using up my factory ammo (150gr. UMC, 168gr. Black Hills Match, and 175gr. Prvi Partizan Match) until I get the GameKings loaded up.
