    Hey everybody it's John from southwestern Pennsylvania. I've been looking into purchasing a long range rifle. I've seen on several different forums everybody argues about what caliber to use... Guess a lot of this has to do with personal preference. So I am looking into a long range ar. I need something rock solid, flat shooting, and capable of reaching past 500 yards easily without to much wind issues.

    I now have a savage model 25 .204 ruger and have reached out to 630 yards... Not with ease I may add. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking 20 inch heavy fluted barrel on the ar as well... Good or bad?

    Thanks John

    Welcome fellow PA member!

    I too am interested in a Long Range AR. I am leaning toward a rock river arms LAR8 A4 Varmint with a 26" barrel.

    I called rock river last week for some info and the women I talked to said they had a 20" model available!

    Many to choose from also you could buy the pieces individually and build your own. Best of luck!
