Well, the verdict is, rain sucks! It has rained here just about every weekend sense I pick it up. Just got done with what was left of Hurricane Gustav, now Ike will come ashore somewhere in Texas and end up here in a few days. However I did get a chance to put a few rounds down range last week. I didn't have any optics on it, so I didn't do anything but 50 and 75 yard groups. My eye site is kind of crappy, however I did manage to hold 2 inch groups at 50 yards with iron sights using South African army surplus 308 ammunition.
The DPMS 308 functioned flawlessly and chambered every round with no problems.
I am looking at those new green laser bore sight right now, so as soon as I get it I will pick up some glass for the 308 as well.
As for other 308 rifles, I already have a M1A, PTR-91 and a L1A1. I love them all.
The boresighter I am speaking of is called the (S Lite SL500 Mag Green Laser Boresighter) it cost about $220. Cabelas makes a similar one called the (Kryptonite Green Laser Boresighter) it cost about $20 less.
These Green Lasers can be seen 100 yards away in bright sunlight. They both come with a scope reticle leveler.
now you have all the fun of getting all the goodies and putting them on all those empty rails !!!!!!!!!! :shock: :? have fun be safe, you have a very good quality weapon and endless selections of accseserys to put on it .
