Range Results: AR-308 rifle – getting close to goal

Hey everyone- I’ve had quite a few inquiries as to how the range results are looking for the AR-308 project rifle.

AR-308 – Redding equipment overview

One of the things I like most about these kinds of projects (AR-MPR, AR-308) is the opportunity to showcase new reloading equipment (new to the market, or new to my shop :)).

AR-308 – Millett TRS-1 4-16x50mm Scope Overview

One of the most important components of a good long range rifle is the scope. It goes without saying that a scope must hold zero in order for a rifle to shoot tight groups. The quality of the optics, the repeatability and accuracy of the windage/elevation adjustments, and other factors also play a key role […]

AR-308 – Geissele SD-C Trigger Upgrade

A while back, I posted the Geissele trigger install video while building the AR-MPR AR-15 rifle. I liked the Geissele trigger used on the AR-MPR project so much, that I decided to buy one for the AR-308 project – this time a different version.
