Stamps came back. Wasted no time going out to OKSS to break em in.

First gun is a PWS MK212 12.75in .308 SBR w/SureFire Socom 7.62 mini on it.

I put KAC BUIS on it. I've found I really like these and their adjustability.



First target at fifty yards the windage was just about on but it shot low. Used front sight and moved blade down. But I moved it too much. So 3/4 turn back up and it was then dead on. These were all 150gr surplus FMJs and some new Perfecta 147gr FMJs I got from Walmart.

12 inch Shoot-N-C with a 3 inch center.


After about 230rnds of various ammo I shot this last ten round group.
10 rounds Federal Gold Medal Match 175gr Sierra Match Kings at 100yds.
That is an 8 inch Shoot-N-C with a 4 inch center pasted on top of a 12 inch one.

In pouring rain.....


That's 10 for 10 inside a 4 inch center. It broke the line it would score. :)
Outstanding accuracy from a 12.75in .308!

This is what it looked like most of the day for us. You can see my first two targets on the right at the 50yd mark.


I got soaked, guns got soaked, EVERYTHING got soaked. But I drove more than an hour to shoot and that's a what imma gonna do. Rain did chase everyone else away so we could shoot a few rounds and then get RSO to go cold and check targets whenever we wanted to.

So after a change of clothes from the soak I made some videos.

Ten rounds of the Gold Medal Match ammo regular speed



And ten more in slo mo [email protected]


Other gun is a Colt LE6943 11.5 5.56 w/AAC mini on it. I took the Aimpoint Comp M3 w/2moa dot off my KAC and put it on this gun. Only just a slight tweak and it was shooting on.

Target off hand at 100yds. This is what I was shooting at in videos below. 8 inch Shoot-N-C


Video. Ten rounds of Federal XM855 62gr green tips

And then again same rounds, ten more filmed at [email protected]



All together I shot about 240rnds from the PWS and about 300rnds thru the Colt.
ZERO MFs. Nothing, nada. Can on, can off, different ammo, mags mixed with different 5.56 the Colt ran thru em perfectly. Mags loaded with 4 different kinds of .308 and the PWS again ran perfect.

If you listen to the regular speed videos you can 'hear' that the .308 is actually a tad quieter than the 5.56. All in all I had a great day swimming in the rain shooting my new guns. :grin

What you can really see is the difference in BCG speed from the .308 and the 5.56.

The PWS has five gas positions o,oo,ooo,oooo and X.
o is for factory ammo unsuppressed.
oo is for factory ammo suppressed or military ammo unsuppressed.
ooo is for military ammo suppressed.
and oooo is for hot stuff suppressed. I shot most all day on oooo.
Made the gun shoot so smooooooth I was quite impressed with it.
X is for removing gas plug and you can't shoot in that position.

Does not have a shut off setting if I wanted to make it a single shot though?
But that is no biggie.

Nice! Congrats.

How long to get them out of jail?
Almost 5 months. I sent three form 4s in same time in same envelope.
All went pending same day 1/12 and got approved same day 5/27 by same examiner.
Got stamps in the mail a couple days later.

Well I've been going back and forth the last few months over whether or not to buy an optic before I got the stamp so it would be ready to go. But I was doubtful as to how accurate a 12 inch .308 was gonna be. Didn't want to over spend on something the gun could not handle. After shooting it I see it definitely needs something more than just a red dot on it.

Now looking for the perfect 1-6 to put on it. Only thing is most 1-whatevers usually all have reticles designed for 5.56.
I need a good 1-6 made for a .308 or 1.5-8 or similar.

10x fixed Pride/Fowler
It's short enough for me to be able to engage targets at zero distance.
I want to have 1x for both eyes open close up and like 6x for things out to 3-400yds.
However I did have a 3.5x Acog on my last AR10 and it worked quite well.

That is very nice. I had been debating on doing a sbr .308 ar platform cause i hear all this about it being over gassed but with your set up it sounds awsome. I might just have to do that set up but with my specwar on it.
