DPMS .308 Lite Hunter

Postby Coyotehunter » Wed Apr 17, 2013 11:27 am

The Lite Hunter offer similar sustained accuracy as some of the heavier DPMS bull barrels without the extra weight, in calibers well suited to medium game like Antelope for longer shots.

I will be Field Testing the rifle this spring and summer. It was just delivered to my dealer and I will be picking it up this week.

Just got mine and certainly looks and feels good!! Can't wait to get the scope mounted and find some shells so i can get it in the field.
Money is a great servant but a terrible master!!

The recoil on the 308 platform is less then a 12 gauge shot gun shooting a 2 3/4" 5 shot. the weight of the rifle and the buffer and buffer spring take up 70% of the recoil.
