I grew up in Oklahoma drooling over Outdoor Life and Field & Stream. Moved to Colorado (still here) in 1960 & my first mulie buck fell to a borrowed .257 Roberts that year. I have been hunting, shooting, and handloading ever since - although with bad knees my hunting days are about over. I can still punch paper though! I have been through many, many bolt guns and calibers over the years, but the '06 is still my favorite. I have taken my fair share of big game at what I consider long range - 300 to 400 yards. And now - I am considering a rifle on the AR platform. So - looking for a review on a DPMS LR260 led me here (great review on this site). Looks like I can take care of my .260 itch and an AR at the same time. Never joined any kind of forum before - but thought I would give it a try.
