DPMS .308...are these good?

I am thinking about ordering a 24" DPMS .308 for $1150. It will take a long time to get, but I can wait. Are these any good, and with good factory ammo, will they do under 1"?

Thanks for any info...I would like to use it as a 600 yard target gun.

Yes.

and it might be able to double as what looks like a badass semiauto shotgun soon as well.

My .308 SASS is an AMAZING piece or art in my eyes. It's super accurate and I've had NO problems with it what so ever.

I've had an AP4 for 5 years and tried to break it (high round count sessions with no cleaning) a few times without success. I'm sure there are some DPMS haters, but for a so called 'affordable' AR platform, it has handled everything I could dish out.

I generally stick to the more standard weights...147gr - 175gr, though other weights work just fine. I have fired 130gr FMJ, a round nosed M1 carbine bullet through this (and my M1A) with no problems, 115gr and 125gr Hornady loads, as well as 200 gr Nosler Partitions.
