Went to RRA's website and they're advertising 308 caliber ARs using FAL magazines. Look just like Bushmaster's BAR-10s to me, so perhaps part of the decision to retire their 308 line included an offer by RRA to buy designs and perhaps even tooling. Pricing looks like it will finally be competitive with Armalite's AR-10s.

Then I picked up a gun related magazine and came accross an ad for DPMS that made my jaw drop. DPMS will be releasing their long range rifle originally chambered in 308 and recently upped to 300 RSAUM in the highly accurate underappreciated 260 Rem caliber. I've been wishing and wishing that someone would do that and now it looks like it will be done in a bull barrel and standard barrel version.

When money comes around, might have to go for a DSA FAL and RRA AR-10 with matching mags and a DPMS in 260 for maximum accuracy. That's a lot of dough but each will be one heck of a rifle.

243's been done by Armalite, but 260 is a round with amazing accuracy potential fitting to the AR system. I'm not particularly interested in the 204 myself, especially in a semi-auto, but it's neat to see them expanding their line and options.

Unless I'm wrong on this one, putting M-16 parts into AR-15 lower receiver that is not registered as a "automatic" weapon (machine gun) or all of the necessary ATF paperwork will land you in some very deep doo doo. Just mere possession of M-16 parts is a going away felony. I'd double check with the ATF just be on the safe side.
