    This is my Christmas present to myself..

    Custom built AR10 .308 Rifle that I added a few mods to, basically built this to be a DMR. So far shooting it, it seems to be really picky on ammo. 1:10 barrel with a match chamber, with NATO 150gr it groups about 2" at 50 yards. Buddy I know that shoots alot said that barrel will work really well with the 168gr BTHP, so I'll try that next time. I was just putting rounds through it to get it on paper. AR10.jpg

    Nice looking rifle. I've had rifles that should shoot heavier bullets at a faster twist that actually shot better with loads from a lighter bullet. I had one rifle shoot 3" at 100 yards with one load and 1/2" at 100 yards with another load. Good luck finding the correct pairing.

    Since it's a custom built did they make or buy a specific brand of barrel?

    With rifle I have found that finding the right load for the gun is pretty important. Not being familiar with the barrel maker or knowing what it cost, or what glass is on top, trigger, blah blah, I dont have an opinion on the accuracy. Try different loadings and good luck. She looks good though. Congratulations and merry Christmas.
