I知 not an AR guy. I went with the GLFA because it kept coming up with favorable reviews.
I have sixty rounds through it and going to start reloading when I have a hundred pieces of brass. I think this thing will be pretty tame with 180-200 gr bullets while staying flat out to 300 yards.
I知 using the clear Lancer mags and have had zero malfunctions. Brass piles neatly six feet to the right.

I think a more directional tanker style muzzle brake will tune the already well tamed recoil.

Really? 300 yards yes, but flat?

Relatively speaking. Flat as the hills.
250gr dropping 13” at 250, 26” @300. A 180- 200gr bullet will bring that up.
Reality is you wouldn’t be shooting at anything over 250.

It would definitely be interesting to see what a hot, 200gr load does.

Kind of miss my Sig Sauers that I won too. sold/traded them all off. still don't really know what for other than I don't own any pistols larger than .22 cal now.

Is it worth it to swap in a heavier buffer?

I will collect my 450 brass. I have neither the equipment or desire to reload at this time. I think I picked up about 16 casings today and am going to shoot some more tomorrow. Located in Holly but also frequent the Macomb and howell areas. @busyfixin @XXXJ
