POTD: Scottie’s First AR-15 Build

    Scottie writes …

    My very first build! It took me nearly 5 months to collect all of the parts because of life and .308s aren’t cheap. But in less than two weeks I assembled everything with only minor issues, dialed it in and took the nicest buck of my life from nearly 350 yards.
