I have been wanting a new rifle to mess with and been looking at the AR10s I was wondering if any of you could make any good recommendations?
I vote for the shilen match barrel in 243win, it loves the 95tmk with imr4831.My votes for Aero Precision. The quality was impeccable and the price didn't break the bank. I did my own build off of a stripped Aero upper and lower with a Ballistic Advantage barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor and the rifle is a tack driver. It can shoot better than I can out to 500 yds and bet it would hit at farther if I had the room and time to open it up. A nice plus is with the usual AR upper swap I also built a 16" upper in 308 win. with a red dot on it. Do I need a 16" 308 and what it can be used for is debatable, but the gun is a blast to shoot and recoil is so mild that even my petite fiance can shoot it with no issue. The only downside is the bug tends to get to you and I'm currently shopping for an affordable 243 barrel to make another upper. They do sell their uppers and lowers completely assembled if you don't want to go the build your own route.
Very nice I'll do that! This is my two both use the same lower for now. They both also started off as stripped lowers like yours, albeit with an Aero Precision M5 lower and with Aero Stripped uppers. The top one is the 6.5 Creedmoor with a Vortex Viper and the lower one is the sixteen inch 308 Win with a Sig Sauer Romeo 5I vote for the shilen match barrel in 243win, it loves the 95tmk with imr4831.
Also look at Columbia River Arms, i have a barrel in 338 federal thats top notch. Here is my titan 338 federal 20" hbar.

I have 2 carbine length rifles as well. One started as an lr308 oracle, used the action barrel and reciever, changed everything else, has an eotech 512 on it.
The other is built on the aero lower 16" dpms barrel, A2 stock, 12.5 free float tube, 3-9×50 scope.
The 18" 243win barrel is the one i used. You will need a sentry S7 adjustable gas block as well, its overgassed, but that gasblock will tame it perfectly.Very nice I'll do that!

I just completed exactly this last week. $699 for BLEM upper and lower out the door.I put together one from Palmetto State Armory and so far, have been very pleased. Some people knock them, but most seem to like them. They run some pretty good specials at times, that's how I got parts for mine. I wasn't in a hurry, so doing it that way got me the whole thing for much less $ than usual.
