Re: .308? in the match.
I called one of the guys I shoot with (X-ARMY RANGER) MAGs (his quote)are great and have there place, as for the .308, I have" I would never change for were we shoot, he asked if I still have my 1st 7MAG, I still do. just hold on to it a bit longer. If I used my .308 Reciever for a magnum you may run into problems. they will fit but you could have feeding problems. Stay with the 7MAG reciever for now and don't be in a hurry. So I orderd a Broughton heavy with 6 flutes.
This guy is a real shooter, he has no fear of shoting a Deer at 500 yards. And he never gave me any BS. so I am gonna hold the 7MAG for now.
Guys you are OK with me. The Barrel may take a long time to be built.
