Ar-10?

So I'm in the market for an AR-10. mainly used for target shooting and possibly for hunting.(I mainly bow hunt) I'm strongly leaning tords the GA precision GAP-10. I want to reach out and touch something at a 1000y or longer. I want something with a 20"barrel or longer. The $2700 the gun is My limit. So my question is talk me into something different.

    AR-10 denotes Armilite rifles and no others its not a term covering all rifles of the ar pattern.

    2700$ is a good budget, if I had that budget to play with, I would be looking at a Larue or a LMT rifle myself. I like the LMT due to is modularity, they offer 4 rounds in their rifle I would consider better for 1000yard targets than the standard 308 win. The 7mm-08, 260 rem, 6.5 creedmore and 243 win.

    That said nothing wrong with the GAP for 2700$ but I would be happier with an MWS or an OBR etc. A 16" barrel will get you to 1k with the right bullet.

    As far as LMT goes the website list the factory price but if you shop around 2400$ is avarage.
    .308 Modular Weapon System, 16" Chrome Lined - Firearms

    With Larue the price is the price

    With that budget I would get a custom bolt action to shoot 1000yds.

    So under forums where it says AR15/AR10, it means just one manufacturer! Anyway!

    The POF brand seem pretty awesome, I would go with 20" also, anything against a bolt gun? Better hurry up if you do want a AR10! It's about to get stupid!

    One manufacture? I would say trying to buy or build anything at this point is an exercise's in futility.

    Yea, with a 6 month lead time I'm probably screwed. But I'm going to put a deposit down to get the ball rolling.

    Maybe. Wall mart had some. It's worth a look.
