308 rifle

  1. Bolt Action Talk
    Has anyone found a decently grouping ammo for these that does not break the bank? It's a 1:12 twist, so I am told heavier will be better. So far I have tried silver bear and prvi ammo, both were grouping 3"+ at 100 yards. I was a little dismayed, my SKS was able to beat that with tech sights...

    Take your pick, the PTR-91 or the FN/FAL. Which one would you choose and why? Both rifles have a quality reputation, both fire 308 winchester, and both rifles are "about" the same price. The PTR-91: From the PTR website PTR G.I. model - Item # 915300 Suggested retail price: $999.00 flash...

    Going to look at a DPMS LR308 this week. I don't know much about them and am looking for advice and suggestions. What is a fair price for one in 95%+ condition?
  4. FN-FAL Talk
    good for long distance shooting, but this video shows it is not a tactical run and gun option. the rifles are just too heavy. Find All Video
  5. FN-FAL Talk
    Any suggestions on a new dust cover / scope mount for my DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL? When I bought my rifle, I got just the standard SA58 with no bells or whistles. As deer season draws closer, its getting time to get a scope mounted on the rifle. There are several options out on the market, so I...

    I just saw the new Outdoor Life magazine with the new rifle test, there was a good article about the new Ruger 308 scout rifle. It made the editor favorite!

    Getting ready to buy a .308 semi. Heart is set on a 1981 Hk91 for $1800. Also lokked at a nib standard m1a for $1300? Hk seems to be a bit more reliable and able to take abuse, also cheap mags. M1a more accurate but $50 mags, no bayonet lug, to long for close quarters but $500 cheaper.
  8. AK Talk
    I'm thinking specifically of the 16.5" barreled version, but reports on accuracy and range for any saiga 308 would be appreciated. Also, if I wanted to install a tapco G2 trigger on one, would I have to make it 922(r) compatible? If so, how many parts need to be replaced?

    I have been reading up on this rifle for the past 6 months or and I like what I have read. The trigger it comes with sounds amazing and the price is also great compared to other rifles in its class. I have plans on adding a Bushnell 4200 Elite 8x32x40 scope to it. I want a nice 600 to 800 yard...

    Ok, I've seen countless threads about this. But my question is a little different. I've always liked the FAL, but I've already got a G3 clone. Both .308, but which is a more reliable and more accurate rifle? Ergos, fun and ease of loading are factors as well. Recoil doesn't bother me, I'm...
  11. M14 and M1A Talk
    I have always wanted one, was getting all spun up to build one off of an LRB receiver, but found this one FS over at the firing line awhile back, so just had to have it..... The rifle was built by LRB Arms. Here is the break down : Receiver : M14SA LRB ARMS Barrel : Criterion 18.5in...

    Here's a few pic's of my new Scout Rifle. (My first bolt action...) I have a Burris 2.75 scout scope. I have not had a chance to take it out to the long range. (Other than 10 rounds at a indoor 25 yd range) I'll let you all know how it works next weekend. Lateck,

    I was down to the locak gunshop inquiring as to the status of the Ruger Gunsite scout and came across a super clean Ruger M 77 Mark II RSI in .308 Win. Long story short it came home with me. Well it's not exactly a Gunsite Scout yet it is light and handy and comes with iron sights. It's...
  14. AK Talk
    Anyone have a converted saiga 308? Can you share with us (picts will be great) what handguard you put on yours? Where did you buy it at? etc.?
  15. FN-FAL Talk
    The FN/FAL has been used by militaries all over the world, so why are the magazines so expensive on the consumer market? Take the AK-47 magazines for example, their usually dirt cheap. Years ago I remember AK mags being around $3 - $5 each. I dont know what the current price is, because I...

    What's the opinion on Ruger's new rifle? At first, I really didn't care for it, just a first glance, but after some reading up on it, I've changed my mind. I really think that it would be a pretty handy rifle. I've been looking for a .308 bolt action and this might be the one. I like the...
  17. FN-FAL Talk
    My first impressions of the SA58 were very good. The rifle handled very well, shot well, was well balanced, and had very little recoil. The first couple of times I shot the FAL, it was just to make sure the rifle shot ok - "yep, it shoots" kind of thing. But now it was time to take the SA58...

    Is it asking too much to get 1 MOA out of a semi-auto .308 for $1,600 or less, and shorter than a G3?
  19. AR-15 Talk
    I just took my brand new DPMS 308 out for it's first range session. The rifle shoots great groups but jams every time I get to the next to the last round in the mag. Both new mags came with the rifle. It doesn't matter if I only put 5 rounds or load all 19, it still jams on the next to last...
  20. FN-FAL Talk
    Hey guys. I've been looking hard at a serious-business .308 semi-auto to help round-out the collection. At first I was looking at a Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad, but decided that wasn't really what I was looking for after all. I don't want an AR-10 either; I imagine at one point I'll end...
