Default .308

Has anyone ever compared a DPMS .308 AR with a bolt action Savage Arms 10 BAS-K rifle

Sure ... one is a high quality precision rifle, the other is a DPMS

Well I heard that the .308 AR is just as accurate as the BAS with the same power I was wondering if that is true

That would be hard to believe. Most of the time you get the most accurate shots with a bolt rifle. I have seen some AR's that are tack drivers but most of the time bolt rifles win.

the DPMS AR-10 .308 won the NRA's rifle of the year in i believe 2005. it is rated to be more accurate than a bolt action. hell, if its close to being even as accurate as a bolt action that works for me in a semi-auto LR.

Default Hypothetical questions (is there any other kind?)

1. New DPMS LR-308, stock trigger. ruffer'n a cob. Obvious solution is to do something with the stock trigger (duh), or replace it with an upgrade.

I have a plan for working over the stock trigger. While that's percolating, I'm open to suggestions about various new replacements (Jard, JP, Jewell, Timney, RRA 2-stage match triggers, Chip McCormick, etc.) and I'm trying to find a contact method for Bill Springfield.

I'm aiming for 500-1000 yard target shooting.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

There are a lot better AR-10's on the market than the DPMS. But if that's what you want,get one.
If I was wanting a semi auto 308 for target shooting,I'd buy a Springfield M1A National Match Loaded.It's a lot better rifle than any AR-10 you can find.

Default dpms vs the the savage

they are 2 different species for 2 different operations ....assault /medium range/ long range hope and pray sniping vs kiss your a&^%$ good bye in the next zip code sniping . the best all around semi auto for dual purpose utility work is the fnar .308 not the dpms or any other ar platform.
