Considering getting one of the two. They both cost about the same.... I like the range and power of the LMT MWS, but feel its range and power would be wasted with the optic I have to put on whichever one I get. The optic is an Aimpoint PRO, FWIW. I like the SCAR as ammo isn't too bad on the wallet, and the stock folds up nicely. Its also decently light....it would make a most excellent candidate for SBRing later down the road as well.... The LMT is a huge behemoth of a rifle, and reports are it can easily put lead downrange to 800m with relative ease. My reservation about the LMT is that it will cost me money down the road for ammo and a proper optic for it....at the same time, I have nothing in 7.62/.308 at this time... Wanna kill these ads?
