He did get it to cycle it a few times. Today we will be running some 7.62 rounds through it to see if that makes a difference.

We just got back from Fleet Farm... and I scored some ammo! Yup, I was shocked😲.... $27 a box  :sleazy:

Just pressin' the like button doesn't do your rifle justice.   :hubba:

Great lookin gun.  How all you need to do is to find enough ammo to break in the barrel.  :bonk:

The stock & pistol grip I got from Boyds. I don't know if you can see it in the picture, but I added a small forearm that I got from Amazon. If you shoot a lot like I do, that rail can get pretty warm. 🔥

For those of you that are doing an AR-10 build, and are having issues with "piercing" primers. I have a fix for you. Most AR-10's in the .308 are border line in the cartridges you run. The 6.5 Creedmoore runs a higher muzzle velocity, and have issues with cycling.

So, if you have any questions... please ask.

Pretty gun.  Hopefully it shoots as good as it looks.
Anything that is free is worth saving up for.

Howdy boys. I got my lowers machined a couple weeks back and I order my parts for the build a couple days ago. Went with Palmetto State Armory 20" stainless in 5.56.

So I did a little assembling last night. Still need to get a scope yet. This may become the wife's and I will get a .223 Wylde. This one is a 556 with a 20" barrel.

She was already planning to build one too. I bought 2 lowers. One for each of us. Main reason she might take this one is after I ordered the 556 kit I learned more about the 223 Wylde and wished I had gotten that. Supposed to be more accurate. So she told to get that and she would take this one. We will see. Wifey likes her guns too.
