I would recommend building the 556 first. Not only will it be cheaper to build with the same quality of components, but also less expensive to shoot.

The 6.8 build can be a little tricky. Here is...

Yes, I own a Leapers scope. I originally bought it for a pellet gun, but was quite impressed and it now rests on my 22lr.

Likely the model you picked would be less accurate than the one I pointed out. The reasons for this are evident. The rifle is not made poorly at all; it is just suited for a different purposes. Two...

That seems like a bold statement to make about the Stag being more accurate. Armalite makes a variety of models with listed MOA from 1-2.5 (not saying this means anything). Not sure what your price...

Bushnell 3200

I'm thinking about buying the Bushnell 3200 4-12x40 AO for an old Savage 110 in 7mm Rem Mag that I have. Reason for the change is the current 4x Bausch & Lomb scope has fine crosshairs, and I keep...

Iím not sure I would call it a jump in strength (ft lbf) but more so that smaller cartridges are shot more often compared to the .50. The .50BMG has an energy of about 13000 ft lbf depending upon...

Well I would have to say the gun does not seem to be worth too much. I have only quickly researched and it seems it can be bought for a couple hundred dollars. It is in good condition and I plan to...
