The chrome-lined barrels I referred you to run from $169 to $200. Not much difference in them and the non-chrome models.

My first build used a RRA bull varmint barrel that's stainless, not...

Since we are just expressing opinions, let me opine that another reason to get a chrome-lined barrel is that it's easier to clean and last thousands of rounds longer than a non-chrome barrel.

I don't shoot anything but my own brass-cased reloads through my ARs. If I didn't reload, I still wouldn't shoot Wolf.

Check out M4 barrels at gunkings.com. I've recently built three M4s with the Yankee Hill Machine 16.5", chrome-lined, fluted barrels. They're excellent. Also picked up a really nice Daniel Defense...

Do you know if the ammo you were using was the older, lacquer-coated Wolf or the newer, poly-coated Wolf? Lots of stories about the lacquer-coated stuff causing problems.

Tasco PDP3s @ $80-$100 are hard to beat for the money. I own four right now. Had my original one (still works) mounted on a Mod 29 Smith .44 Magnum for a few years.

I've been really happy with my Bushnell Elite 3200, which is around $300 @ Amazon.com.

Per robocop, I've found .223 brass to have the same internal capacity as .223 brass; however, 7.62 military brass doesn't have the same case capacity as commercial .308.

I should have added that the Simmons scope is better for the purpose for which I'm using it, as a varmint/target scope on a Remmy 700 VS. The Bushnell scope is mounted on an AR that I recently...

Too bad you don't have a Glock. You can send your slide to Glock, and they'll install Trijicons for about $70, including installation and the price of the sights. The rear sights of XDs are really...

If you're primarily going to be shooting @ 1000 yds, then go with the 300 Win Mag or something similar. I doubt that the OP has to worry about the "killing" ability @ 1000 yds, as I'd guess it's...

Could be the timing of the disconnector, or maybe the disconnector spring is installed upside-down.

I don't use multi-railed free float tubes, but do use the excellent, though inexpensive, DPMS vented non-railed tube.

I did a Google after I posted in this thread. I saw that the Grendel does very well @ 1000 yds. Bet it drops a lot between 1000 and 1200. The drop @ 1000 yds., with some loads, is over 30'. Hard...

Would you mind posting some competition results of great accuracy out to 1200 yds? That's mind-boggling.
