After watching two guys shoot with the .308 RRA platform at our club, that's the one I would buy price be damned. They are extremely accurate rifles.

My buddy has an LMT with an 18 inch match barrel it will shoot Sierra 77's into less than a half inch at 100 how much better than that does it have to get?

We are talking about a .308 platform rifle here.

My LAR-8 Predator shoots quite well thank you, and cost ALOT less than LMT stuff. wink







Is that good enough from a 308 AR with no load development? whistle

yeah, but they now have these things called turrets on the new fangled glass optics. They allow you to move the bullets where ever you want. laugh

thanks TC. Everyone that has shot my RRA LAR-8 Predator at the range leaves the bench with a big grin on their face. It was just under $1600 out the door and you get alot for the money. smile

they also come in 243 and 7-08. My brother's 243 predator will shoot under 1" with the very first load tried. He saw no reason to search any further for his deer load. wink

I have one. I have used it for about two years. I put folding night sights, a 2x7 Leupold and a sling. I swapped out the grip for a military one and took off the side sling mount on the front. I also put on some rail covers and a rear sling mount. That's it.

It is heavy enough to be easy to shoot off hand but the weight is within the hands so it can be maneuvered pretty easily.

It shoots so well with my 55gr bulk Core-Lokt practice handload that I haven't fooled with anything else. I use the same load in my Mini-14 Ranch and my Ruger Hawkeye UL. It is more accurate with it than either of them though the Ruger is close.

Nice trigger, seemingly very accurate, free floated barrel. The folding stock allows for a spot weld. I like to shoot with a sling and zero change is minimal when I use one.

I have had a couple of people tell me it should have a chrome lined bore. No way until accuracy goes sour.

As I understand it, the only real advantage to a chrome lined barrel is in high volume rapid fire applictions or if using corrisive ammo, or if used in an environment that excellerates rust.

Personally, I see no need for chrome barrels in most applications.
