When it comes to rifle barrels they can often be separated into different classes of performance. The top level performers are what I refer to as “No Excuses Barrels”. Lilja is one of the small handful of custom barrel manufactures producing these no excuses barrels for winning competitive shooters world wide. More importantly Lilja Rifle Barrels was named exclusive supplier for .30 caliber Mk13, Mod 7, and .50 caliber Mk15 barrels for the Navy SEALS. Lilja is now offering benchrest level performance 6.5 Creedmoor drop in barrels for 308 AR/AR308 shooters. They are available in 20″, 24″ fluted and unfluted. Barrels are also available in .260 and .308 Winchester.
Take the long range accuracy of your 308 AR, AR 308 or AR-10 to new levels with a simple barrel change to 6.5 Creedmoor.
We frequently get inquiries from shooters looking for AR-10 Barrel Extensions. Of course if you have been following this site long enough you know that they probably are not looking for Armalite AR-10 barrel extensions but instead in most cases looking for DPMS LR-308 compatible 308 AR, AR308 barrel extensions. Furthermore if one has the skills to mate a barrel and barrel extension why limit themselves to Armalite AR-10 bolt carrier groups.

I decided this year friends and coworkers would receive shooting related gifts despite their position on guns. I wanted them to all have something that reminds them of me, so after a bit of pondering it occurred to me most are drinkers of some form of alcohol. After a bit of browsing on Amazon I happened across Lucky Shot USA and their line of bullet embedded glasses. When I saw that many of the glasses featured 308 bullets I knew I had found the right gifts. They practically say 308 AR on them :). Anyhow my first purchase and the subject of this post is the .308 Bullet Shot Glasses. I bought a set of two shot glasses for my boss at the day job.

Modular Driven Technologies aka “MDT” is well know for being a leader on bolt action rifle chassis particularly their TAC21. MDT is also the rifle chassis provider for Brownells, Winchester, Weatherby and Mossberg to name a few. Many shooters may not realize that MDT also offers a skeletonized carbine stock that with proper buffer system hardware can also be used with the AR-15, AR-10 and 308 AR rifles (See the chart below). The MDT “SCS” is a great Magpul PRS alternative.
I have a beautiful finished basement in my my home. It currently serves two purposes, the first being my photography studio the second purpose is a place to store stuff we have not unpacked since moving in two years ago. The little woman and I have always discussed turning the room into something more useful. Well last weekend my cousin gave me to leather recliners that naturally got stored in the basement. Well today it struck me, I’m going to turn the basement into a photo studio gun themed man cave. To that end my girl asked me what I want for Christmas. So I’m going to load her up with all kinds of shooting related gift item ideas to decorate my man cave. First up is wall art and this case a 60 inch wide by 23 inch high 5 panel canvas that features many classic firearms such as an AK 47, FN FAL, Daewoo DR 200, M16 and an assortment of old handguns. I will on this print whether my girl buys it for me or not.At some point I will make a similar print with one of my 308 AR’s or my Armalite AR-10.

The Aero Precision 6.5CM OEM Rifle is a great way to get in to a 308 AR at a caliber other than .308 Winchester. The other caliber is the incredibly accurate 6.5 Creedmoor. If your unfamiliar with the 6.5 Creedmoor it’s gained a lot of press as an option for the United States Military as an option for a platform capable of longer range accuracy than the .308.. Available only from Brownells the AERO PRECISION 6.5 CREEDMOOR AR 22″ OEM RIFLE is nearly-complete rifle and comes fully assembled, just waiting for you to add a free-float handguard, sighting system, and a buttstock that fits a mil-spec carbine receiver extension.
