New AR10 just dropped | Ruger SFAR .308

This just hit the market. It's gimmick is that it's lightweight for an AR10. I don't know anything about AR10s so I'm wondering what PrepHole thinks.

Currently my long range build is a 16" AR15 with a 1-6x LPVO. I wonder if a .308 AR like this would be a significant upgrade. I already have an 11.5" AR15 so I wouldn't mind having something that's more specialized. Although, everything about this platform seems more expensive.
wouldn't getting a bolt action in 6.5c or 300w/m be more effective and lightweight than this?

    It's what POF did a while back. 15 sized receiver but in .308.
    Also 16" barrel .308 is retarded, it's an old ass round with shit ballistics, give it a chance with at-least 20".

        .22 lr killed even more, what's your point?
        Do you think I was implying it's not lethal unless you give it those extra 4"?

        What is wrong with people like you always going on about 20" barrel length minimum and the AR platform. .308 out of 16" up to 20" is perfectly sufficient and have been issued with the military with those barrel lengths.

        Because boolet is slow, and loses a lot of speed to drag. So starting off faster makes it more better.

      5.56 sized bolt with a 7.62 sized bolt face
      wouldn't that make it super weak? I remember people talking about how 7.62x39 ar bolts were fragile, but wouldn't this be even worse?

        AR10 bolt is much bigger.

        Whoops image didn't post.
        I never had a problem with 7.62x39 in an AR15, but the bolt on the 10 platform is scaled up a good bit.

          You also need a longer+heavier spring, and a 5.4oz buffer for 7.62x51 with a standard 7.62 bolt in a standard size 7.62 receiver, compared to a 15's spring and 3-3.4oz.
          My stock ruger ar556 kicks sharp with standard 55gr NATO so I know they're going to go on the lighter side of action control, adj. gas only masks the problem of an inadequate buffer.
          I can't imagine what it's going to be like if they've just shoved 7.62 into an AR-15's size. Literally can't make a buffer heavy enough that fits. If Ruger simply fistfucked the action into a smaller receiver you'll see a lot of failure to feed and eject.

          A 16" barrel version would be an economical choice for hog hunting, or really any type of hunting where it's legal and you're inside 300y. I would probably put a Swarovski 3-9x, offset dot, and a direct thread can on one. This thing probably isn't a precision rifle.

          >probably isn't a precision rifle
          I bet you most of us can hardly manage 1moa from a 1/2moa gun anyways. I also bet you a skilled man with match ammo can get my AR556 to below .75moa

          I just got a PA-10, same deal. Have an 11.5 for close range, wanted a .308 to reach out. Most of the stuff is not more expensive. The ammo is heavier and mags don't fit common pouches. That's about it.

          I have a PA-10 lower and have been waiting for a 20inch stainless upper with the half-top-railed handguard. How is it working for you? Same buffer spring and weight problem they've always had and still haven't fixed?

    One day I’m going to build an AR-10 with wood furniture

      Building an AR10 is already enough of a hassle but wood furniture isn’t cheap, a pistol grip is $100

    An upgrade to what? Squirrel hunting? Probably not at all. Bear defense? Probably in every conceivable way.
    >wouldn't getting a bolt action in 6.5c or 300w/m be more effective and lightweight than this?
    More effective at what? Precision shooting competition? Big game hunting?
    You have failed to communicate the parameters in which you are contrasting the Ruger SFAR to your own guns and a high powered bolt action. You need to realize, in this world, nobody who's shopping for a bolt action 6.5c or 300w/m is looking at an AR 10 and vice versa. If you're going to be hunting elk or bighorn, 300w/m is the obvious choice. If you're a forrest ranger in yellowstone, the AR10 is the safest option. If you're competing in precision competition, the 6.5c is the obvious choice.
    tl;dr you need to think BEFORE you post.

    I an pretty interested in this
    >nitrated chf barrel
    >small frame
    >6.8 lbs
    >adjustable gas block
    >street price close to $1100~

    Ruger did have some problems with their early SR762, but they seemed to have fixed or replaced rifles for customers way back when SR762 was still in production

    been looking at an ar-10 to buy when I'm not poor would a ruger be better than a psa they look to be about the same price both free float handguard too

      This ruger rifle very likely have proprietary parts since it’s a small frame ar-10. AR10’s are already kind of a clusterfuck in regards to parts compatibility. Way better than years ago, but there’s still compatibility issues.

    Isn't that just a POF Revolution/Rogue copy?

      pretty much, but POF is about $1500~2000 and I've heard some hit or miss stories with POF QC and customer service.
      Not to mention the Rogue has an SS barrel while this on has a nitride CHF barrel and an adjustable gas block.
      Not sure about the BCG though, I saw some pictures and there's a lot of vent holes
