LR-308

Date:November 29, 2011
I took my DPMS LR-308 topped with a good scope to the range last weekend and made accurate hits on steel at 200yds, 300yds, 380yds, 565yds and 600yds over and over all day long with cheap 150 grain off the shelf soft points. I love this rifle.

WOW! Recoil like a .22 with great accuracy. I can see the bullet splash through the scope. I WILL be buying another one. Great gun for the price!

First AR

Date:November 20, 2011
This is my first AR. As is my practice I performed a thorough cleaning before shooting. I have to know how they work too. I shot it before putting any sights on it just for function testing and it was flawless. I have since installed a riser (.83") and mounted a Weaver K2.5 on it. The scope aligns perfectly with my eye. It shoots 1.5" groups at 100 yds with a generic load. I don't like adjustable stocks so will eventually replace it with an A2 later. The trigger is better than an issue M16A2 but is still terrible. I'll probably replace that too. With more magnification and some load development it will surely shoot even better. I am also looking into some folding backup sights. Overall, I am very pleased.

Great buy

Date:August 19, 2011
Took it to the range 3 times. I shot about 150 rounds out of it, no jams. Very accurate rifle. I had to send it back to DPMS for one thing. There was no catch on the upper receiver for the charging handle to latch on to. Don't know how they over looked that. Other than that, great gun....

DPMS LR.308

Date:April 28, 2011
Very sweet shooter!
As with all new firearm purchases I ran an oiled patch down the bore.....and took her shooting.
This Panther has preformed flawlessly!
After 200 rounds not one jam,"stove pipe", or malfunction!
DPMS seems to know what they're doing when it comes to punching a bore!
The bore is smooth as glass and cleaning is a breeze.Never....with the exception of a custom barrel,have a I had a bore that cleans up so easy!
This beast seems to prefer a heavier bullet.
So far my best 100 yard grouping is with Blackhills 168gr.Match( 5 rounds at 7/8).200 yards went right at 2".....off the hood of my truck!
I have no info on sustained fire......I don't abuse my equipment like that....but 10 rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger is a blast!

Fine after break-in and cleaning

Date:December 12, 2010
Like the other reviewer mentioned, this rifle is absolutey terrible right out of the box. After extensive cleaning and lubrication, I have had no issues. I would also recommend replacing the magazines, the stock magazines seemed to also cause FTL's occationally.

So far so good. LR. 308 bull

Date:September 1, 2010
Clean it really good before you go shooting. It jammed up a lot when I took it out the first time. Stripped, cleaned and lubed everything alone with the clips. After that, it worked Great. 100 yards no prob. Looking to go further. A little heavy but if you go to the gym once an a while your be fine. Good price, great gun so far.
