jon jenkins: It appears that the RFB's need a heavier barrel with all the obvious
vertical stringing.. I would not be happy with those kind of groups with
any gun....much less one that costs 1500+ It would no doubt be fine for a
duel purpose weapon but not a precision weapon. Neat weapon design but
they can do better that that for accuracy. With a 1/11.25 barrel twist I
would try some 175 SMK's.
This is not meant to be a dig on the posters video, just an observation.
Ned Bates: Aim for their ribcage if they're out at 100 meters she'll land a few inches
high and get the job done no question. Haha
Stacy Smith: Hey great video, have you figure what's the best gas piston setting for
papashake: what is he aiming at lol
556 Channel (HD): Nice video! Great production.
psychobeam99: Hey Hog. Do you believe this rifle could double as a good hunting rifle? I
live in southern Georgia where a Rifle like this is legal to hunt with so
long as you restrict yourself to 5 or less rounds. Seeing as how I believe
in the one shot one kill method of hunting, I would probably only leave a
round chambered in the weapon for still hunting but I want a single rifle
that can also double as a defensive Designated Marksman Rifle. Thanks.
Also,the like bar looked offensive to me so I liked this.
PhotoBobBarker: In most places (that I have been) as long as the mag is modified to only
allow 5 rounds (and requires tools to undo the modification, I.e. a #6
screw across the mag with weak lock-tite on the nut) they are fine with any
mag you choose to use.
tony paquet: Try the remington core lokt 180 gr.I get a 5 shot group of 1 1/2 inch with
my rfb canadian edition...yeah! woot woot ! cool hein?
JonnyC308: Wow the bipod under handguard shots didn't turn out so great. Good info
psychobeam99: On a side note Im not just looking at the RFB, I have my eyes set on the
DSA SA58, PTR91, and the SCAR 17S. The latter being the one I really want
but cant afford the near $3000 price tag. Thanks.
HogWithADrum: In our opinion, the RFB is an outstanding primary battle weapon and serves
best in that role. Currently, it is set up with an Aimpoint :) That being
said, your dual purpose idea is a good one and a 1-4x scope would be
perfect! The other 308 examples you mentioned are fine options as well.
HogWithADrum: about 1.5. I think we can do better on the next attempt. "Kel-Tec chose to
cut their 18″ barrel with 1:11.25″ twist rifling" all I could find on the
HogWithADrum: Thanks for the like! We prefer the lightweight 300 BLK action for deer or
pigs. If 308 is your game, the RFB will do a fine job as a hunting tool.
Accuracy IS acceptable but NOT incredible. As far as the law is concerned,
we would mention that metric FAL mags are 20 round capacity units. Some
locations limit mag capacity strictly, regardless of how many rounds are
actually loaded up.
HogWithADrum: it depends on the ammo mostly. best bet is to set the gas system for the
specific type you are using. there may be more than one generation of the
RFB which could also change things a bit.
fredbrackely: What is that, about 1.5~2 MOA? What is the twist rate of the 18" barrel?
