I've said it before. Get the ACR and the chances of getting a select fire are there.

The future Larue Costa backed AR seems to have a lot of nice features.

Before you push the button on the 6.8SPC take a look at the 6.5 Grendel.



6.5 Grendel Ballistics

From the Alexander Arms link below:

Shooting a 123-grain Lapua Scenar with a ballistic coefficient of .547 and a muzzle velocity of 2600 fps delivers outstanding accuracy out to 1200 yards. At 600 yards, tennis ball size targets are no match for this flat shooting round.

I have heard nothing but good things about the Grendel and my brothers have some pretty extensive research on it as well but it comes down the cost of reloading, and its more expensive to reload that then the 6.8 and in my small ass home town I would have to be hitting up midway for all of my reloading supplies (dyes, plates, and brass) and it just becomes more of a hassle when dealing with unique cartridges like the Grendel. I have better access to the 6.8, but I will definitely dig a little deeper and do some research myself on the round. Thanks for the tip! That would be a fun load to work too, especially after looking at that ballistics chart.

True that.

To the OP on the lecture of the "assault rifle"... We don't care for that term much.

During the ban-hype of the pre-internet 80's that we were trying to fight, "Assault Guns/Assault Rifles" were the wicked terms the anti-gun media and politicians used to paint ALL OF US semi-auto owners as Patrick Purdey types ready to explode. It wasn't true then or now.

Sadly, too many "gun capialist whores" delighted in their full-page spreads in SGN touting their selection of assault rifles, so we had no ally even among our own ranks. The 89 ban hit and the rest is history.

Now any shooting of any kind anywhere in the USA is by an "AK" or a "semi-auto assault weapon", regardless.
Example; there were two shootings here in PGH this past week; in one the media made sure to state it was an AK, and in the other shooting the reporter explicitly stated it was an "M4, an AR-15 like the US troops carry" in Affcrackassitan.

WTF.

6.8 looks like a really nice round. Have recently been looking at the .300 blackout and if you were looking for suppressed like I believe I read above it is definitely something to look into. Can go from subsonic to supersonic with just a mag change. For an AR platform....Idk just something to think about

Huh? What chances are there of getting select fire in the ACR? As a civilian, one has ZERO chances of getting a select fire ACR. NONE were made pre 86 so NONE are transferrable.

If there is some sort of black market available for select fire ACR components DO NOT POST THEM HERE!!!

I wouldn't want anything like that anyways, I would get too trigger happy and burn through ammo likes it cool. Lol and I'm not familiar with ffl classes so I wouldn't know anyways.

And I've never even heard of the .300 blackout before I'm gunna have to look into it. Only question I have on that is, is it suppressable?

You must have missed the waives of civilian ACRs that went F/A on their owners.

Have I ever?

The F/A comment was a joke referring to the bad quality of the ACR and how there were some semi only that went F/A on their unsuspecting owners.

The .300 BLK is a good round. All you need it a barrel change to go from 5.56 to .300 BLK. You also get to choose from the numerous rounds already developed for the .308. It's very smooth.
