Oh, no question that more accuracy = better, and if you can obtain more accuracy, by all means, get more.

The problem is when you're so invested in the concept that you're not really honest with yourself about what you've got. And, to be fair, this isn't a problem limited to precision shooting... people really kid themselves about the modern viability of older firearms all the time. For example, I know I love the Uzi's iconic looks and reliability (with FMJ), but good luck running that thing competitively at a USPSA match. It's just not as good as modern guns.

I prefer the Criterion over a BA. Fewer issues with short headspace (None with Criterion, lots with BA)

This is the culprit!

Between the weather and this pesky job, I'm not sure when I'll get back to the range.

I'm not sure if Lilja will include a headspaced bold for the price of their barrel or not.
I bought a Lilja 6.5CM barrel from them a couple years ago and the price didn't include a bolt. Looks like the price is about the same as it was then.

How do you like the barrel? What bolt did you go with?

If you go to the Precision Firearms website, you can custom build your barrel and get the matched and headspaced bolt for it at the same time. They cut the barrel to your specs. They have Bartlein, Criterion, and Kreiger barrels for sale, but you may want to call for the Kreiger barrels, since they aren't shown on the website as custom builds.

But, I’m considering ditching the whole 1000yd precision idea and getting a bolt gun for that later down the road.

I’m not sure how I would finish out the AR10 if I do go that route; so who has one, what do you use it for, what’s your setup and what are yours thoughts?

DPMS Oracle AR-10 .308 can be had for $690 - $800 range

I got one from Zeroed In Armory, LLC in Texas. $25 shipping
