Default Need a suggestion from experienced builders!

Okay, its that time again. I'm going to be building another AR. Only this time I wanna do one in .300 blk. It's gonna be a throw around, out in the woods, truck bed, four wheeler kind of weapon. That being said, I only have experience with DD products so I hope I'm not spoiled already. So anyways, I'm looking for suggestions on good, RELIABLE, quality uppers in said caliber that won't be quite as expensive as the $1000 DD I bought last time. Will probably shoot around 2000 rnds per year. I would like to be able to be rough with this weapon without fear of failure....so I would like to know which name you boys would trust with that...all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

PSA is making a 300 BLK.

I had those same criteria when I selected my Core15 9.5" SBR upper. So far, it has performed as hoped.

That's a good suggestion and what not, but being that to get it in hand would be close to $900, I would just assume get a Daniel Defense for $1000 and have total piece of mind. That's my predicament you see? Lol. I'm spoiled on perfection guaranteed.

I and many others have had excellent service out of the PSA uppers . Dont let their cheaper prices fool you , your getting a excellent product . I havent had any experience with their 300 BLK but I have heard nothing but good so far with them .
If your looking for a inexpensive build thats where I would go if you just have a wad of cash to blow then stick with the DD

Anyone ever used an upper from spikes? Good rugged quality or no?

Also try DS Arms uppers. Everything I've heard they're of good quality

Not an upper, but a whole rifle.

Yeah, Spike's puts out a good product.
