Thanks guys. I don't think I want to trust the boys to shooting an animal with a 5.56. I know some people around here are doing it but it's just not something I'm comfortable with.

Firefox I know that dtech makes some long action uppers that I could put on the dpms panther that I have but it is pretty heavy and I'ld like to keep something that is lightweight if at all possible. (I know I know.....I just want it all \:D ...... ).

Tater.....I saw the ssarmory loads referred to on ar15 and a 6.8 website. It sounds like kotonics is the place to get a 6.8 upper from if I go that route. I may still look into getting a complete rifle though.......I'll just have to see how the prices compare.


thanks again!

From everything I've read kotonics makes a pretty good upper. I have a buddy that has been using the 120 pro hunters with success.

leeinmemphis,
I take no offense and I like your thinking towards a complete rifle. With the upcoming elections and current event you might as well get a complete rifle...you never know what the new Government will sign into law! I'm not talking Dem/Rep...I say about current events from VT all the way to last weeks NIU event. I for one feel that even if I go to the fun store today and buy a new stripped-lower that it's serial number will get snatched-up by the gun grabbers for not leaving the factory as a complete rifle. The future looks dim for those of us who love semi-auto military type rifles...

Yeah I'm thinking getting a couple of lowers this year may be a good move so I'll likely purchase a complete 6.8. I'm going to look at some of the choices at the local gun stores and see what's available locally. I'm not in a huge hurry but will probably try to get something by mid-summer so they can have a few sessions of shooting prior to fall.
