Looking at buying an AR10 and suppressing it. Any good AR10 platforms under $1500 that would be a good place to start looking? Preferably looking for 16-18" barrel. Not opposed to building myself if I have to.

Also, this will be used for hunting more than anything.

Thanks,

MIKE

I just had a customer purchase an Armalite AR-10 lower for a build. He was also buying a custom upper, and not spending much on it.

X2 the CMMG MK3 CBR model

I got mine for $1630 shipped and if you look at the parts list compared to other rifles there is no question. My buddy has bought one now and just got a suppressor for it. TxKiller has shot mine suppress with subs and supers and he is now in the process of getting a suppressor lol think I ruined him.

Great looking gun! Any issues with the subsonic rounds cycling?

Subs don't cycle in 308 autos. If you want a suppressed gun to cycle with reliably with subs I'd get a 300blk

Or atleast I can't find a round that cycles. I get the 180gr soft points from chad and they're almost movie quiet but they don't cycle.

It will cycle you'll have to swap out the gas block for an adjustable and maybe swap out the buffer spring.

I don't know man. These guns are already over gassed suppressed. I'm about to get an adjustable gas block so I can dial it down a bit. A different buffer spring might help.

Palmetto State has been having a lot of sales on AR-10 parts lately. I've built several PSA AR's for customers and never had a problem with their quality. They generally aren't beauty queens, but they've all shot and functioned well.

That's what I keep seeing, I wonder if I should start looking more at a 300?

Anyone have any input on hog and varmint hunting with a 300 and suppressor? Most shots are 200 yards and under, a few get stretched out farther.

I wouldn't hunt with subs anyway unless it's like a 50-75 yard shot to ear hole them. Most bullets won't expand at 1050fps or below.

I have both 308 and 300BLK. Runs subs through them. Have bullets from Outlaw State (300) that will expand and are tough on hogs. But they are $$$$. Have had no luck with cycling 308 subs, seems like too much trouble. They run good through my bolt gun. I sub hunt out to 100 for hogs and coons. Don't really do it for deer. Can get out to about 125-150 for small game or coyotes. Would not be good idea past 100 for bigger game.

I love my 300BLK but if running it at super sonic speeds there are many many better choices.
