Re: 308 AR

And yes, it's a 2 MOA dot, so it covers 10" at 500. Even with the 3X as Doc said? I feel dumb since I own one, but I don't remember how that works, but I assume Doc does. 2 MOA is 2 inches at 100 yds. At 200yds, that 2 MOA dot covers 4 inches. 300yds, 2 moa, 6 inches. 400yds, 2moa, 8 inches. 500yds...

Re: 308 AR

I don't consider myself an awesome shot by any stretch of the imagination, and I can hit the large steel pepper poppers almost every time with wolf 145 grain at 500. It's really not that bad. And a big hog is about as tall as the poppers, and much wider when profiling, but with a .308, wind isn't a...

Re: 308 AR

But a 3x magnifier would mean it's not a 10" circle... Oh.... Oops. I'm liking the scope+offset irons (or red dot) suggestion. Why settle for just a hog gun when you can have a DMR... Yeah, I agree with you there. Having a real scope on a .308 just seems to make sense. I'm using the S&W as a deer/e...

Re: 308 AR

I'd suggest getting a 16" standard profile barrel. It's plenty accurate for out to 500 yards. As far as the optic, I really like running a red dot with 3x magnifier on some kind of swing mount. With the 3x, and a slight hold over, 500 yds is relatively easy. 500 yards on hogs with a RDS and a 3x ma...

Re: 308 AR

If you want a higher power scope without 1x capability, offset irons are a great option to look into.

Re: 308 AR

Probably correct, but I really want a free-floated barrel. I've heard that the M&P is good-to-go, but I really want a free-floated barrel and what I've heard around here is that it is not available. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I'm going to put a Troy rail on my MP10 soon. Several guys on...

Re: 308 AR

The Sigs are sexy, and I've heard nothing bad about them. Anecdotal, I know. LMTs are sexier. Like "Oh I just got a chub." Personally I want one of the M&P10s. I was pretty pleased by the MP15 and 1522, and I think it would make a nice companion to my MP9. I think you'd be happy with one. I've only...

Re: 308 AR

While a LMT with a VCOG on it would make a splendid hog gun, imho, a S&W M&P 10 with a Leupold V6 1-6X, would fill the bill nicely as well, at half the price or less.

Re: Good first revolver?

The Ruger 6 series triggers can be improved quite a bit with 10 bucks worth of springs and possibly a bit of stoning. They won't usually match a good S&W K trigger, which is why I, and most other shooters shot Smiths when I was shooting PPC. But in my big competition years, I owned a couple S&W matc...

If you're not really intending to ever use this revolver for CC, then I agree with those who said Ruger GP or Security Six. Those things are built like tanks and can digest a lot of magnum rounds. But a Smith K-frame conceals better, if that matters to you . Ahhhh....no. The Ruger Six series and th...

Re: Good first revolver?

I say Ruger Six series. They just don't break. Pretty much. I went through Ruger's armorer's school in the 80's and they gave me a passel of parts. I think I can count the times I've used them to fix anything that wasn't user induced on one hand, with fingers left over. S&W's are smoother and make ...

There's the cheaper 457 if you can find one - about the same size as the 39xx series in a single stack. S&W still makes mags for them but they're pricy. I'd show preference for an LEO trade in if possible, they were made without the mag disconnect The LE S&W's usually have the mag disconnect, most ...
