CDNN is selling a Cobb SCAR 30-06 "Aniversary-marked" edition with a 24" 1:10 Lothar-Walther barrel. I'm set up for loading 30-06 so this gun interests me. Does anyone have any experience with this gun, particularly in this caliber? Is it a precision rifle? With a good handload or match ammo, can it be sub-MOA? How rough is it on brass?

Experience... thoughts... comments... suggestions?

Thanks.

No experience, but saw the same thing and thought it would be a cool gun to have in .30-06.....unfortunately, I have no idea if it would be reliable, where you'd get mags (Cobb I'd assume), what the mags might cost, etc.

I'm curious to see if anyone here has one and can give a report.

IIRC it uses BAR mags.

Since Bushmaster bought Cobb, the only question you shoiuld ask yourself is who will support the rifle if it does need attention? BM? I do not see anything on their website concerning the MCR rifles except the 50 cal.

I purchased mine from CDNN over the summer. When it arrived I was as impressed as Marshall at CDNN thought I'd be. The gun case it arrived in is by far the nicest one I have. The case comes with wheels which help a lot since the rifle alone is advertised to weight 13.5 lbs. The two mags it came with are unaltered B.A.R. mags. The only surprise to me was that the firearm does not provide any bolt hold open feature. I have tested my MCR-300 for function using M2-Ball ammunition and it functions flawlessly. I have not spent the time yet to accurracy test the firearm yet. The bipod that comes with the package is short and I find it only useful from the bench. As with any firearm that I like as much as this, it would be even better to have two of them. I bought this item mainly because it shoots 30-06 which is my favorite cartrige and I like having something different.

It is worth mentioning that there is very little perceived recoil when firing 30-06 out of this Cobb MCR-300. It is the most comfortable to shoot 30-06 I've fired.

There was a brand new one at the Indy 1500 gun show over the weekend. What a gun. I thought they were asking 2900.00 and I thought it came with more stuff.

I really wanted one of the 308's that took hk mags and the lack of a BHO was a big factor in me not getting one

The other is that I am broke

if it uses bar mags it probably would not hold open didn't the BAR fire from an open bolt? ie no hold open tab on mag

This is the one where you can change calibers all the way up to a 338 Lapua, right

Yes, the 338 was a friggin beast BUT the muzzle device made it pleasant.

I do not know where that stands now that Bushmaster ownes them. I know soem 308 kits are outthere.

Hey everybody,
I have got one of those Cobb's 30.06 but it has the Leupold scope. It is setup for long distance shooting. I have been shooting with it. I have shot it out to 2,000 yards with excellent results. I have been hunting with it on wild hogs and have taken them at 300, 500, and 700 yards in the clearing. It nailed them every time. The rifle uses unmodified BAR magazines that have no bolt open feature. I discovered this out when I got the rifle and was upset with this feature not being mentioned. I investigated getting this done but it would be more trouble than it was worth. I have about 10 magazines for this rifle. It shoots like a .308. However I have an MGI recoil reducing system in it and it kicks in between a .223 and .308. Sorry for the long post but this rifle has been good to me and I love it very much.

Cheers Mate!

KingWolf

Are all of your magazines from Cobb or are the unmodified BAR Magazines?

and have You had any problems with getting the First round to feed from any of Your Magazines?
