Thinking about getting this for my son who has a muscle disorder. Having a heavy setup helps him not move the gun.
What say ye THF'ers? Any thoughts?

I had an sps tactical that was as accurate as they get and the price is right.

I really like the Tikka CTR's in 308

Either will do you fine. That 20" barrel is nice

The only two advantages of the AAC-SD over the Tactical model is the 1:10" twist rate, for a bullet heavier than 168Gr, and the threaded barrel, but that is really on good if you are using a flash hider or Suppressor from AAC as the way it is threaded requires a recess in the the item you are threading on, if using a different brand you will need to have the threads undercut to accept a Non-AAC product.

I have an AAC-SD, both 308 and 300, love both but you need to toss the Hogue stock and X-mark as soon as you get it.

The other models with 1:12 twist will stabilize more than just 168gr bullets.

We started carrying this model over the AAC because the stock is much better, it still has the 1:10, fluted barrel, and we had a lot of problems with the AAC.

Had an AAC-SD for a short while. If I had kept it I would have changed stocks for sure, the Hogue is junk. The xmark adjusted all the way down was ok for a hunting rifle IMO. All things considered it shot well and probably would have been a sub moa rifle as is had I worked up a load for it.
