In a van, down by the river...
Yes,

I built one for my friend, all my parts came from model1sales.com

The only prob we had initially was feeding with a standard magazine (that was supposed to fit) my bud bought the specific mags and has had no problems since.

The ammo is a little steep for the most part, but who the hell knows where the price will go.. Down with more folks getting them, or Up cuz everything else is...

My next M4 is going to be a 7.62x39.. I can still get that ammo fairly cheap, and I know more about that round then the 6.8

Did you get the recent Shotgun News? Has a great article on the 6.8 'Creedmoor'.. a promising round

No I haven't seen it.

Did you do any ballistics tests on it?

You need a LaRue Tactical SPR mount for that glass...........:)

Yes I dooo!

That is the next purchase. F'n things are spendy! I need the extra eye relief and the rings that I had for the scope are a little low. But it still drives tacks, for now.

With the Leupold Mark IV would you go with the SPR-E or the standard SPR mount? SPR-E extends the eye relief even further, as I am sure you are aware. Can't decide!

60 years? That's a little drastic.
40 at the most!
Making things expensive is the capatalist way! Somebody has to get rich off of poor pukes like us!

I would go with the SPR-E, based on where your scope is sitting in the photo.

What reticle does the Leupold have?

That's what I was thinking too. It has the Mildot reticle. I get alot of shadowing from it now.
