Nice. Id like to see that hit production. It seems more likely than a different lower, bolt, and barrel for. 30 caliber acr's. Plus I see that it would drive the aftermarket for our rifles.

From what I understand the. 338 is pretty pricey. It can really reach out there though. .308 would be perfect. If thy had that im sure a .338 would fallow.

338 Lapua and 300 Win Mag are too long to feed from a 308 action. 338 Federal like the Armalite rifles will of course, and, maybe some short mags but the bolt face would have to be opened up. Without seeing it that may not be an option if too much material would have to be removed and weaken the bolt.

You r right the parent case for the .338 Fed is the .308.The .338 Lap is not.
Perhaps we will see these 243 Win,7mm-08,358 Win(8.8x51mm),.30-06 would be nice to.

actually the 338 lapua would be requiring a much larger platform for a .308 type rifle so don't expect to see that for a while only if magpul decide to design it...

most likely it could be in production but in limited number and i would really like that magpul would produce it... (i'm no a bushmaster hater for a better term)

well the 300 wing mag could be feat with a .308 type platform... from my experience the walther wa2000 is a good exemple but i could be wrong...

You guys beat me to it. The .338 Federal would be more realistic in that platform. .338Lapua or Norma would be pretty damn long.

Whatever calibers it comes with, I will be all over this like me on rice.

More calibers for the rifle would be great except I think they try to keep the usual chamberings to be able to hold a wider customer base. I would love a medium range sniper version to hit production but id think they would have better success from a sales point of view in a .308 caliber versus some of the other magnum loads out there. But again. We can just hope for the aftermarket to pick up the reigns on that aspect. These platforms have so much potential. Id hate to see anything not happen with it.

As much as I hate to say it, Remington/Bushmaster (if that is who would get the contract) would do well to work out ALL of the ACR kinks before mass producing this rifle. I don't know of too many problems with the Masada while in prototype stages (and I read a lot at the time), but Freedom Group managed to throw a couple wrenches in the mix during mass production.

Just avoid a few recapls, and I'll save my money. I'd love to have one for shits and giggles.
