Looking to Pick up a .308

Recommended Posts

Lately I've been thinking about picking up a .308, it's not that I need one...sorta...but I do want one.

 

I've been looking at the VR 401 or VR 601

 

http://www.k-var.com/shop/VPR-401.html

 

or a FNL I have never held or shot an FN.

 

I've thought about an AR 10 as well. But if truth be told I think that the rifles based on the M 16 have too many moving parts. Thats one of the main reasons I like the AK style weapons.

 

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

I don't have any experience with the VR401 or VR601 althought they sure are priced right for their specs!

 

For myself, I think of the 308 as a long-range engagement weapon. Following that thinking, I am more concerned about accuracy than high mag capacity. I chose a Marlin Model 338MXLR. Only 5+1 capacity but it is very reliable with lever action and a scope.

Same price range as what you were looking at.

 

Hope that helps. I would be interested in what you choose and why.

Left handed shooter...with the semi auto I can fire multiple shots without having to reacquire my target if need be. The AKs when they eject the spent round throw it out forward at about a 45 degree angle so I don't get hit by the brass on the way out.

You mean that you don't like that brass warming your forehead?

 

Good point on the left hand shooter.

I don't have any experience with the mentioned weapons but i have heard very good things about them... kinda brings up the ar-15 vs AK, just with a different caliber. I'm building an AR-10 right now, and looking at parts, i've seen a few left handed AR-15 uppers which would help with your brass to face disease. may be able to find some in AR-10/DPMS .308 platform.

Mudbass? Could you point me in the right direction for an AR-10 build please. Been looking at that setup myself lately. Mostly for fun,target and hunting but I imagin it would work well for defense also.

I have fired the Vepr pictured ( a friend has one) and I liked it a LOT. Extra mags seem to be a bit dodgy on price variances and availability. Also have fire an AR-10, liked that one a lot as well. Sorry, I am no help! I do like the vepr price point though, can buy a lot of extra ammo in the savings.

I've not fired the VEPR. I have fired the AK. My problem with the AK style weapon is that the stock on an AK is designed for a person not as tall as me. My bride loves hers but I find it a little awkward to shoot accurately. I do think the AK action (no indication that the VEPR actually uses that action), in fact the entire weapon, is the easiest weapon to clean I've ever handled. No exceptions, it is the easiest maintained weapon I've ever seen.

 

I like the PTR-91. I went looking for an M1A and ended up with the PTR. It is an American made clone of the HK-91. It is an easy weapon to use, accurate with iron sights that quickly adjust out to 400 yards.

 

The AK is a fantastic weapon; if this is an AK sized for .308 it should be a solid shooter. If you can, shoot one first to make sure you are comfortable with the weapon. The weapon weight is important for a .308. Too light and it will hurt to shoot. Too heavy and you won't want to carry it. My PTR is "just right" for me. Sounds like Goldilocks and the three bears; sorry.

I have experience with a Maadi, carried it when I was doing OpFor so I am pretty familiar with the AK style weapons. I always hated it when we used the M 16s because they were such a PIA to clean.

 

Ya my joke about the AK is that it has three moving parts, trigger, bolt/gas piston, and firing pin assembly.

M16 has what, 16-19...don't remember the exact number.

 

For those who have AKs, a cheat for helping clean them is to use a little airplane grease <the pink kind> and put a light coat on the gas piston. After your done shooting it wipes right off, your piston is clean and you just regrease it. Why airplane grease? High temperature tolerance the gas pushing the piston back would not make it melt. Don't use it on the firing pin assembly portion though.

 

I'll take a look at the PTR. Don't know anything about them.

That all depends on how much you would like to spend. you can build a budget one for about 1k. Armalite AR-10 and the DPMS LR.308 look the same but none of the parts are interchangable like with ar-15's. DPMS holds the majority of the popularity though. If you looking for something basic, DPMS has several pretty basic setups. this being their most basic i believe-http://www.dpmsinc.com/308-SPORTICAL_ep_97-1.html

I personally am spending quite a bit on mine... DPMS/CMMG, JD machine, Tactical machining, and patriot ordinance all make great upper/lower receivers. I'm probably going to be putting a Fulton armory barrel on mine as well.. Mine is going to be more of a frankenrifle but basic outcome will be http://www.dpmsinc.com/LRT-SASS_ep_92-1.html with a few modifications

VonBayren. Did you decide to get that 308?

 

A friend of mine just purchased a FN FNAR .308 Win. 20" Light Fluted Barrel 20+1. He added a good scope and a bipod. We took it out shooting and that thing can drive tacks at 300 yards!

I am serious thinking about adding one to my collection.
