    Hi cjmousseau,

    Welcome to LRH. Not much use for a flash hider unless your doing some night shoting and don't want to give away your position. (the varmints or deer don't pay no mind to the flash or the noise when they're falling to the ground from 800 yards away):D Hand loads will be you best bet for accuracy. You should hook up with jmason near you. He loves to shoot and I don't think he has anyone close by to shoot with, plus he's a great guy to talk to.

    Kevin i like your sight the reson why i want to use the 308 vortex flash hider is for long range shooting and i would have a better line of sight seeing down range when i shoot and it is a tactical rifle. i was going to shoot 168 to 175 grain 308
