Thinking about jumping into the AR10 game primarily for night time thermal hunting in West Texas where many of our shots are 200-250 yards and the 6.8 just isn't packing enough punch at those distances. When I can get closer I do but many of the sets you are on a ridge or cliff with a big valley and the feeder on the other side so these longer shots are necessary and I want something that is gonna have more ft/lbs at those distances than a 120 gr SST. Still keeping the 6.8 for 200 yds and in.

I've had one for a few years but have never shot it. Fit and finish are nice enough. Don't like the proprietary parts though.

What parts does that include?

Hmm I guess if you never chose to change it from a stock rifle it could be a nice option but I like to be able to change things if I don't like them or if something better comes out.

It seems most AR10's are not compatible w/other manufacturers AR10's.

Most 308 ARs are either SR25 or AR10 pattern. The PSA is a hodgepodge of both and a few proprietary pieces thrown in for good measure. Rock River and POF are similar in that way.

Other options include:

Delton Echo 308

Diamondback DT10

Not that I've shot any of them, bumped into these while building myself an AR10

May take a while to get one. I waited 7 months before cancelling my backorder at Cabelas

Given the spotty accuracy reports of Savage's first AR10 I'd proceed cautiously on that 1400.00 option.

Heck if you like to roll the dice (limited info on a gun's performance) based on 6.5 Creedmoor (no doubt a great caliber) then consider a LaRue Tactical Ultimate Upper with a stripped lower for about the same cost ...

I'd go for it. Looks like it's got all the parts one might want, and you could probably turn a profit on it at the gun show if the rifle didn't shoot.

I just watched some YouTube videos and it seems many people have and are having issues with these guns. Won't be buying

I've had a DPMS LR-260H in 260 Remington for several years, and it has been a great rifle and very accurate. For the money,I'd buy another DPMS if I needed it.

In a few words, what are the common complaints?
