    Just order the vortex strike fire from optic planet and when I order it the page said nothing about the item being out of stock. Shortly after I get a email that my order is on back order for 18-24 days!! What the hell!!

    I have one and love it but this one will be a high caliber one. The stripped lower says multi caliber so i figured i got some time before i commit to one. I was looking at the .50 Beowulf, its interesteing and feel id have alot of fun with it. I was also looking at getting into .308 platform

    The 50 Beowulf is a tank I remember seeing that gun on the show future weapons like 4 years ago haha. Not very good for long distance tho like maybe 200yards. The 308 platform would be cool to get into. Just ammo prices is a killer!! What kind of lower did u get an what did u paid for it??

    You can build a .50 Beowulf, .458 socom or a 450 bushmaster off of it, but not a .308. The .308 has to be built off an AR10 lower which is considerably bigger than an AR15 lower. Just a heads up before you order an upper that won't fit.

    So are you really set on a .308? You can also build a 300 Blackout off of a ar15 lower, or a 6.5 Grendel or a 6.8 SPC.

    When all the panic dies down I am planning on getting a dedicated upper in 300 blackout. It is basically a necked up .223 shell, so you can use your standard ar mags. My .308 is a bolt gun.

    They may need to have their mouths washed out with soap but this fits in right here...

    BTW, Brownells did the "backorder thing" to me with some minor stuff. It was in stock and then, surprise, the main things I bothred ordereing anything for were OUT OF STOCK they latr told me. I would not have ordered now if I knew they were backordered. Actually added a part I KNEW was backordered since I was waiting for a completion of the order anyway...
