So I've decided that I'm finally going to get busy building out the next AR-15. I won a lower and matching upper from the Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraiser a couple years ago, and just haven't had the spare coin or time to build it. But now I've got a bit of both, and it's going to get done.
Since I have an AR in the standard 5.56 NATO, I decided that this next is going to be in .300 BLK, and rather than all-black, I'm going FDE.
That's as far as I've gotten.
I don't have any particular niche this will fill. No matter the cartridge, I can't use it for hunting deer in Indiana (unless they pass the new cartridge regulation suggestions, but given that it wasn't until 2006 that Indiana adopted Daylight Savings Time, I'm not hopeful for rapid change from the state gummermint), so the primary purpose, like all my other rifles at the moment, is target shooting. I want it to be accurate out to 200 yards, just in case I *can* someday use it on Bambi's daddy, but otherwise, I've got no specific needs.
So, now I need suggestions on parts. Logic tells me the first place is a lower parts kit, with trigger and grip, then add the barrel.
Price is a factor. I'm not eating rice and pintos daily, but I also don't wipe my ass with a Ben Franklin. So keep the suggestions in the "reasonable" range, please.
