If it's a Colt, it's a copy of an original ArmaLite.

Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

If your AR10 is marked Geneseo, IL, it's still an AR10 no matter what some people say.

Have just had time to break in the barrel and get the scope zeroed. Haven't had a chance to wring it out yet and for now, that will only be 100 yards.

There is an 800 yard range about 40 miles from here. Gotta get there sometime in the next couple of months.

Are there going to be any short action guns in the new configuration?

243, 6.5 Creedmoor, 260 etc. If so please make sure and give us a barrel twist to shoot the heavy bullets. (8 or better please)

Nice. I have been looking to replace my old 26" barrel custom Winchester Mod-70 in 300 win mag. Though extremely accurate it weighs in at 17 pounds empty and has a wood stock. What is availability of the 300 Win mag model w/ adjustable stock??

Not sure yet, but I am told that .300WM should be good out to 1500 or so.

Maybe true, maybe not.

I know I took my AR-10 SuperSASS out to 1000 a few years back.

Yeah . . . 28-30 inches for a 338LM , unless its being built as a hunting rifle .

Let me see about getting down there. I have just about every weekend through November scheduled to do other things, but maybe in December.

How much of a pain and a cost is it to change the rapidly shot-out barrel? 300 and 338 destroy barrels IIRC.

Hopefully ArmaLite will answer as I don't have nearly enough rounds through mine yet to worry about it.

Some people say .300 is more of a barrel burner than .338, others say the opposite.

I am inclined to believe .338 LM is more of a barrel burner due to projectile weight and velocity, but I could be wrong.
