    Will be looking to put one of these on my next build, .308.

    I just installed one and I like it. It's definitely on the long side, but I've never been a "nose to the charging handle type".

    If researching options, check out the MDT Skeleton buttstock. Designed for precision AR and attachment to the MDT chassis for bolt actions; comes in different configurations and weights, some of those enable shorter LOP. I'm looking to use one as part of a folding chassis for a bolt gun.

    For precision rifle shooting you shouldn’t be.

    Ideally you should have a 90° bend in your elbow. Pick the rifle up with one arm and make a 90° bend. See if the stock touches the crease of your elbow.

    Great for static shooting, heavy for shooting on the run. With rifle buffer you'll be like "what recoil?"

    I'll give that a try. I shot the rifle with the PRS stock out to 800yards last night, and I found the stock very appreciable.

    Why would anyone get a PRS for shooting on the run though?

    Hopefully so they can do this with it:

    Muzzle awareness and functioning optics are overrated, I guess.

    It all depends on what you want, right? If all you are going to do is sit on the ground and throw bullets at paper or steel, it's fine. In fact, it might be the best.

    If you have an 18 inch or 20 inch precision AR that you want to use in a run and gun type of competition there's a better choice. Unless of course use that rifle for precision shooting as well then you just need to put up with it.

    Like I said with a rifle buffer there's practically no recoil, and on an 18in 5.56 AR with match ammo I can hit steel at 700 yards all day long. But then it's just a precision AR, and not a 3-gun or SPR-type gun.

    Edited to add, I might want something that can do both. Not sure yet. Also my statements about the lack of recoil also holds true with 6.5 and 224 Val.
