Hello everyone, im new to the forum, and new to ar10s. I'm planning a target rifle in .243. I'm pretty dead set on .243 due to the lighter recoil, and a source of brass. I'm not really concerned with the weight since it will be on a bipod. Haevier weight might be beneficial as my wife and daughters will probably shoot this gun.
I do do have a couple of questions.
I will probably shoot several weights of bullets, so I'm guessing 1:10 twist??
Also, since weight is not an issue, should I go with a full bull profile?
Do I need to send a bolt for head spacing?
ill be using an Ares Armory lower with a DPMS upper. I haven't decided on a bolt or trigger yet. I'll probably make my own hand guard and I have a magpul PRS stock..
