Does anyone on a DPMS LRT SASS 308. If you do how do you like it. Is it accurate whats the best MOA you have gotten from it. I thought about purchasing one of these but I don't know if I want to give up my Savage 10fp-LE1 308 20" barrel with the choates sniper stock. I really don't think that the AR10 will hold a light to this rifle. I will be getting the new X10 HD SS scope (with the help of Chris Farris) and it will either go on my savage or the AR. Either way this scope will look mean sitting on either one. Thanks

you could compare them in a fair test-- say 15 head shots in 20-30 second at 200-300 yds, I don't think your savage is up to it.

Yeah I can't get off that many shots in that amount of time with my Savage, but I bet it won't hold a group like my savage.

groups only indicate a general direction, and in a way are meaningless unless the competitive event your shooting uses group size as base line judgement. Another fair test, 20 single cold bore shots of singles at 20 different 1" dots.

I saw this review on Sniper Central for a DPMS LR-308. It is not the SASS. But this review indicates it is an accurate AR.

Nice gun, accurate by most standards, nice to have control of the gas system (trying to figure out how to do that now with an AR10 without a new barrel.)

Good gun, faster than bolt gun, but not as accurate as a good bolt gun - not without lots of tuning and $$.

I'd give up the Savage and go with the AR-10

For clarity: an AR10 is an Armalite rifle, the designation is specific to only .308-caliber Armalite ARs.  The .308-caliber DPMS is an LR-308 and a Rock River is an LAR-8.

To say "AR10" is generally accepted to mean a .308-caliber AR-based rifle, but for precision and accuracy, an AR10 is specifically an Armalite rifle. 

I too prefer the Armalite to the DPMS.  And, be advised, the 2 formats are not interchangeable, if you have an Armalite, it requires Armalite-specific accessories.  If you have a DPMS, it requires DPMS-specific accessories.

Thanks for that. I didn't know that the parts were not interchangable.

Precision Accuracy is always a bolt gun with a good, consistant driver at the wheel.
 
Acceptable accuracy with a gas gun is a tight gun with an exceptionally consistant driver at the wheel.
 
Mediocre accuracy is the guy with the new gas gun asking  "what moa will it shoot".
It won't.

I love shooting gas guns at distance.
They contain all the evils of hell just waiting to pop out and humiliate the shooter when only the slightest....................ever so slightest error is committed.
 
For the AR platform, can't beat the DPMS SASS.   Tried the Armalite in stock and custom............you can't run fast enough to give me one.....and I waddle.
