I have a DPMS for about a year now and I love it no problems thus far and I have pumped quite a bit of ammo through it even bulk ammo with no failures at all. Great and accurate just FYI

I ordered the del ton rifle kit which came with all magpul and I pay $550 for that and $100 for CDD lower receiver. I'm going to have just under $700 after I buy a rear sight. I've built a few deltons and one stag, the fight and finish of both are very similar and so is the function of both rifles. No matter which one you choose will be a good rifle

How many shots per stage, how far are the targets? Ask around what the typical stages are like. You may want something short n sweet, or something a bit longer for a bit farther reach.

Don't get a plastic receiver, you might have to through your rifle around a bit. Also a stoppage during competition will ruin your day.

Looks like they local club ( Chattanooga rifle club) is having a match this Sunday. Think I'm gonna try to run up the and se how they run things. I don't think they shoot anything over 300 yds there. Website says they have a 500 yard line, but it's for bench rest comps only I believe

Depending on the brand, plastic receivers can be OK for a dedicated .22LR. But like Tikki said, not a good idea for a competition gun.

Same deal here , I just found out one of the local clubs here runs 3 gun so I went out to check it out yesterday and I dont think there was much over 60 yards max distance , it was pretty neat but I would need to sharpen up my handgun skills a bit more .

Thanks for all the input... Looks like I'm gonna go with a dpms lr308 sportical.... That'll set me up to run heavy metal right out of the chute( and give me an excuse to buy 3more guns down the road!)

The price isn't that bad... Found one at buds online for $975...as far as the weight, I'm pretty used to shooting garands, and m1a's. Not in competition, but for sport and hunting.

Here's the thing.

If you are seriously getting into competition, there's one thing you gonna want to do.

Practice practice practice, and some more practice. Practice practice practice, and some more practice.
Practice practice practice, and some more practice. Practice practice practice, and some more practice.
Practice practice practice, and some more practice. Practice practice practice, and some more practice.

You are gonna go through 10s of thousands of rounds, so you probably gonna want to reload. If you can save 10 cents a round over the course of 10k rounds you will save $1000. Start with the cheaper round first. 40 cents a round vs 15ish for reloads on .223 and you will see a very convincing argument to start reloading and shooting .223. Even if you reload for 308 you can still save OVER 10 cents a round.
