So my birthday is during hunting season and my wife just told me to spend the money and get the 6.8 upper I wanted. I have a s.s.a.l.t mount (bought for a good price here) and a nikon prostaff 3x9x40 on the way. This will be a dedicated hunting upper. Before I pull the trigger, anyone want to convince me I'm going the wrong route here. Shots are 50 to 200 yards tops where I hunt. I was thinking about a bolt action in .308 but I want a hunting AR platform for some reason. I've been hunting with a 30-30 for years now and just want something else. I have a colt le6920 right now and would be using that lower until tax time, then I'd build a lower for it, if I like it this year's deer season. The money is ready to be spent, and usually I just buy what I think I want. The reason I am asking is because this is the first purchase in the firearms world I've been hesitant on at all. I'd buy a 10 or 15 round mag and some Hornady 120gr SST for hunting season too. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
