Thinking about my .308 build I plan on doing in the future, what length barrel would you use and why? Ultimate goal will be long distance accuracy, so I am thinking at a minimum 18".
I plane on building the AR-10, already have a stripped upper and stripped lower. Build will not before a while, give me plenty of time to do research. Loving in S. FL. I doubt I will have much opportunity to push it farther then 300-500 yards. Based on the cost of optics for that distance, it will be a long while for that.I'd go 20". Any longer and my eyes just can't get over how unbalanced they look. But that's just cosmetics for my opinion. You may want to go longer for accuracy I really don't know the ballistics.
Also is an AR10 build pretty much the same as an AR15 build? Do they go together the same way?
