armalite AR-30 ?

would somebody get one so you can let me know if it shoots.if it does as good as the ar-50 it will be a best buy for sure.armalite said the will ship in 30 days or less.i just got the new fcsa mag and there is an article on the AR-50 they said it shoots great.at 500 yards with some loads they got under 2 inche groups.the 2 loads that did the best had the worst es they did not list the sd.i just got my chronograph 35p have not tried it yet.so how can it shoot and have that kind of a es the one load was about 179 fps es the other that was real good was about 80 .still higher than any of you would want or maybe even use,thanks,keith

Re: armalite AR-30 ?

I have one on order... for about the last 9 or 10 months... can't wait until September because that's supposedly when it will come in.
(unlike June as stated before the actual month of June which was changed to the September month when June came and went)

Kid...

I have a friend that has the AR-30 on order, and they are suposed to be shipping very soon.

I have an AR-50, and it shoots better than it should for the money... I get 1/2 MOA with A-Maxs, and 3/4 MOA with military bullets like API, and M48s... Blues go around 1 MOA.

I'd get it again in a New York Minute [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: armalite AR-30 ?

Had a guy that shot one in factory class last weekend. Cannot remember his exact group, think it was in the 13" range at 1000 though. It will be posted soon on www.virginia1000.com website as results for match 1 and 2 factory class. He was shooting factory 250s and not started reloading yet. So think it could tighten up with a little work. Right out of the box.
