  1. AR-15 Talk
    The 308 rifle niche was already filled with the M1A, FN/FAL, PTR-91, Remington Woodsmaster, and various bolt action 308 rifles. Heavy Duty SHTF Battle Rifles - AllOutdoor.com I remember reading about the AR-10 decades ago. Why it took so long for an AR platform in 308 Winchester to go main...

    Hey everybody I picked one of these up a couple weekends ago. I love it so far I'm mounting a luepold VX-R 2-7x on it for low light/ night hog hunting under a feeder. Anyone else have one? I'd like to hear how others have them set up with optics and stuff. I'd LOVE to put a can on it but that's...

    Anybody have one of these? Ruger® Gunsite Scout Rifle Models Curious to see if they are worth it. I like the concept behind the "scout rifle" though the haters seem to abound in every article I read on it. Sure, M1 makes more sense being both .308 and a semi, but when $$$$ butts its ugly head...

    Does anyone know of a stock company that makes stocks for the Savage Edge?

    I have a Remington 700 Tachtical (a term overused by many companied) chambered in 308, haven't done much to it other than put a scope on it (Tinberline 4X16X40) and Harris Bi-pod and a mag extender from 4 rnds to 7 rnds. I shoot my reloads, Winchester Nato brass with either Hornady .308, 165 gr...

    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...
  8. FN-FAL Talk
    i am looking to get a 308 semi auto and i am between the fal or the m1a. it will be used for target/plinking. can anyone give pros/cons and explain the difference between inch and metric pattern. price is really not an issue as the m1a is in the 1500 range.

    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...

    A while back I was told that a good AR-10 lasts longer than an M-1A. The person who told me does a lot of shooting. He said that the M-1A is a little bit more accurate but that after so many, I think he said 10K rounds, it has to be completely re-worked or re-built. What says the group here? Any...

    Guys and gals this is a little article I threw together, and I would like your opinion on it. This article is some of my opinions on the AK-47, AR-15 and the FN/FAL rifles. Lets start from the very beginning: Inserting a magazine AK-47 uses a cam style magazine, where the magazine has to be...

    What steps do I need to take. (parts to buy) to turn my Tactical Mini in to a M1A SOCOM clone? Pictures would be great. I have been thinking about what to do with this rifle and I don't want to turn it into another AR. It had its own mystique. Thanks JRC
  13. 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
  14. 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 got a chance to join the long range shooting group at a local range last wednesday. With some good coaching the gongs at 778 and 900 yards were soon ringing. The 20 inch heavy barel with 168gr SMK's was veary consisitant making hits on the 24 by 24 inch plates quite easy once the scope was...

    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!

    I know there are a fair share of Mini-14 owners on this board, and not every one of us can afford it's bigger brother... the M1A. The M1A is about the perfect companion to the Mini-14, same pattern rifle, just bigger and shoots a more powerful cartridge. But the M1A is pricey, real pricey... and...

    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.

    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...
