I'm feeling the need for a new gun. I'm a pistol person primarily, but a scoped rifle is the way I'm leaning, probably in .308. Current long guns in my collection include AR15 .223, Garand in 30-06, Marlin levers in .45-70, .44mag and .357 mag. I have no scoped rifles and my club range only goes out to 200 meters. I'll probably only be paper punching, or doing casual competition shoots at the club. Of course, a SHTF sceanrio is always in the back of my mind. I've always liked the BDL, but the new Bushy AR10 piqued my interest. Any thoughts (besides get both )?

Get an Armalite AR-10 & a Bushmaster .308 It's a win/win

If you'd it was for hunting I would have said get the Remington, but since it's for the range and you've got "the itch" for the Bushy that's the way to go.

The new Bushy is a DREAM gun. But get the Remington. If you want accuracy, it's the only way to go. If you want a 308 blaster that can shoot good groups, get the Bushy. If you get the PSS series in a 700, you can come to Arizona for our Spring Shootre-Rooter & blast milk jugs at 800 to 1000+ meters ALL DAY LONG !!!

No such thing as a Bushmaster AR10.

No, my bad. I was referring to the Bushy .308, I called it an AR10, thinking they were using the same designation as the Armalite. I guess they're calling them A2s and A3s.

This from a board full of people who say AR15 relates to rifles other than those made by Colt.

Not better, but most people like a different type of weapon for different uses, and he'd already stated that he liked the Remington. I didn't mean to imply anything bad about a Bushy.

Get the 700 LTR in 308. That way you get a light enough to use gun in a real stock without the
j-lock. It will be or can be made to be a 1/2 minute rifle. They are very nice. Sometimes used one show up on snipercountry's board.

You won't see me calling ARs of a different brand AR15s, so what you just said is irrelevant.

I'm sorry, does Colt still hold that trademark? I believe the AR15 plans are also community property now. The AR10 isn't.

HUGE difference.....




Have you ever seen a Bushmaster with AR15 stamped on it? Mine says XM15.

Does anybody know if Bushmaster does customization? I'm eyeballing the Bushy .308, but I've got a very particular direction I want to go with it. I'm thinking float-tube, 2-stage trigger, and a Gem-tech bi-lock type flash suppressor. :D

I guess I could rebuild it, but if it can "come that way", that would save money on replacing parts. (Obviously, the stuff not in their catalog will have to be put on later...)

Let's see, a non-chrome lined nor stainless steel barrel .308 for $1500 with a one year warranty. Whatever floats your boat.

I agree with SHIVAN, get the AR10. The Peoples' Republik of Mass. can ban it at any time. The Rem 700 will always be available because it is a bolt gun.
