She wanted something to hunt with that was lighter and didn't kick like my 6.5x284 heavy barreled Ruger 1. So we started out with a Areo Presision upper and matching lower, got a Houge over mold grip and free floating forend, Magepul CTR stock w/Enidine hydralic buffer, Young bolt carrier, AA Heavy use bolt, Timney 4lb trigger, Seekins abj. gas block, "Find the Cure" engraved dust cover, pins and mag. release, personally engraved Buttstock tube, Mecharmor Tacops-1 charging handle, 20" BHW octagonal fluted 264lbc-AR barrel, Limbsaver pad, Levang Linear compensator, topped of with Nightforce NSX 3.5x15x50 Velocity retical scope and rings, then camo dipped all parts in Muddygirl camo for the wife and she put it together and this was her first week end out.
Life is short, plan for tomorrow but live for today!!!!
The build still looks great and that hog still looks large. Maybe you could post some range results to go with this. Consolidating threads is a conservation of bandwidth on any board. Parallel threads and duplicate postings get lost in the shuffle and responses are split Willy Nilly.
The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.
