AR 30

I'm new here and new to long range shooting and have a question guys. I walked into a gunshop today to see the owner, a friend of mine and he has an AR 30 in 338 Lapua hanging on the wall for $1400 with 50 rounds of brass and dies. My question is about the rifle quality and accuracy for 1000 yard shooting. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I had an AR-30 on order too but due to the long wait i am going to build one with a 32" barrel and a Geske action. Through research on the AR-30 i found for the bullet i wanted to use (300 SMK) i was gonna have to throat it out and i wouldn't get the velocity i wanted.If you want to use the 300 grainers it will become a single shot for you. That was not an issue with me. I just wanted a longer barrel and to be able to push the 300 grainers over 3000fps.

    For $1,400, you could get a decent cutom gun in 338lapua and trance all over that AR-30. JMHO. Have fun. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I already have a couple good long range hunting rifles. Ones a .358 G&H Imp. and the other is a 9.3/375 Dakota. Both 8.5 lbs all up but this AR 30 just looks COOL [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Really think it'll be FUN [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
