    AR15 with big cartridges

    I have had a few AR15 uppers for ages, only one with 223, the others are bigger

    I've been pretty busy with other projects but finally got my A into G & got a couple going a bit better as I have abit of pig pest control to do & the 30 is a little light I feel

    The 338 BRX.





    The 450 Bushmaster.





    Both shoot pretty well.







    The 110 TTSXs @ 3000fps out of the 30 BRX upper maybe a bit lacking for this job, this one may disagree, but it was only 5-10 metres to be fair



    I guess time will tell, all I know it's nice to have the opportunity to be filling the freezer again, paper & melamine targets aren't very appetizing.



    Good times, even in the rain

    Recoil is interesting, obviously 275 grain projectiles at 2200+fps have some punch.

    I haven't worked a customer price out yet

    When I first read the heading of the post I was hoping that was a 338 lapua or 300 Norma Mag for long range semi auto fun something like the Nemo Arms Oman 300win mag.
    Still cool all the same and plenty of close up energy.
