Hi!

Anyone have experience with this gun? How is accuracy and reliability? How is magazine reliability? How about larger mags than 19 rounds? I will use the rifle for IPSC and would like to have a mag with 30 rounds in it, or maybe a Beta C mag.

Any other things about the LR-260 or DPMS AR10's in general, please post your opinions.

I have one. Only shot factory ammo thru it before it went back. Here is some info.

Turns out the barrel was cut too tight so its getting replaced.

I called the other day and they said that they got the barrels and should be working on it this week however i never got the phone call telling me they did anything and I was promised this two weeks ago.

It's just a darn shame that if it's not a 223 you're buying, everything else is liable to be like some one-of-a-kind experimental with YOU being the test pilot.

I don't know why manufacturers can't do their homework first before putting their stuff on the market. Seems mighty unprofessional to me.

In my book that is bad customer service and poor quality control. I would very much like to hear from other LR-260 owners. Is this a common problem with these guns? Anybody got some chrono numbers for the 260? I need 3200fps to get that 100grs Scenar to major PF. Possbile out of an AR10? Or do I need to go with heavier bullets?

I am getting 2800 in my JP with 123 lapua and got 3130 with the 108 lapua. this in a 22 inch barrel. N550 powder. JP is getting higher speeds but I want to reload the brass more then a couple of times.
