Well here it is. About two years ago I made up my mind I was going to get a .260 and settle on an AR Pattern Rifle.
Both the upper and Lower are DPMS, and both are custom. I put the lower together myself one piece at a time and just through dumb luck found a very nice custom upper that was almost exactly what I wanted, but at about half the price of the one I was going to have built.
It has a full bull 24" Krieger with an 8 twist and a JP trigger unit. IOR Valdada tactical 4-14x50mm on top and Leupold Mark IV rings.
I'm still going to do some tweaking and tuning on it before I'm done but basically it's the rifle I've wanted for a very long time.
Had a few issues with it at first but a little lapping and junking the factory DPMS magazines I'd bought and replacing them with Magpul Magazines solved them.
Tried several kinds of ammo in it but for now have settled on the Federal Fusion 120gr.
It had been doing a great job for me out to 800yds, but I switched scopes and had to zero this one. Thought I'd actually put it on paper for a change and see how it looked.
I set this target up at 250yds, backed the scope off 3.5MOA and shot a full magazine 20rds in about 2 minutes. Seems to hold up pretty well even when it gets hot.
Apparently it's a keeper... .
Next we'll try some 125gr Swift Scirocco's and 123gr Lapua Senars. If it gets any better I'll be delerious.
It also seems to do the job pretty well on Coyotes as shortly after I finished target shooting the opportunity presented itself. Always nice when a new rifle gets to draw first blood.
Hope ya'll like the fancy custom shooting bench... HA!
