    It defeats the purpose of saving weight if it takes 2 to 3 times the ammo 2 do the job the .308 does with 1 round. In a worse case scenario if the get 2 close just make sure u hav eaten ur peanutbutter, onion n sprout sandwich n breath on them. While they’re paralyzed u finish them off. lol.

    People go 2 a smaller round 2 save weight but then hav 2 do 2 or 3 shots 2 equal 1 .308. I’m not a physics genious but I c no positives in the smaller rounds unless they plan 2 hunt dangerous armed rabbits 😀 Then the .223 is ok. Btw, in ur vid of sprouts etc… peanutbutter, onions n sprouts? ur right that would help in close battle lol but my mind cant get beyond the thawt of the taste.

    @yankeeprepper #1 thanks 4 the info on Sgt. Dyer in another vid u did. I hav been praying 4 him. #2 I agree with u on the .308/7.62 nato. I dont hav an AR, I hav a FN FAL I got used. We hav like minds. (scary thawt lol) Little bullet, little results. cont….

    I typed out several different comments to aid in debate of this, but honestly there not getting the point. So I instead backspaced an I’ll just say keep up the good work. I gave my AK to the wifey cause it’s light weight holds lots of rounds an she can do well with it for home/base security. I picked myself up a CETME 308/7.62nato (money dictates after all), with some research an home brew it’s now a great shooter out to 600 Yds. more to do with the round an my ability than the actual rifle.

  6. Whoops on the double post. Yeah the PTR suffers from the same malady with brass as the HK 91. They can be reloaded, if you can find the little boogers (I’ve found some nearly 60 yards from where I was shooting.) One thing I really like about it is, how cheap and readily available magazines are. CTD sells them for 97 cents apiece. As far as reliability goes, the only problems I’ve had with mine, where either ammo or me related.

  7. Yankeeprepper | April 21, 2010 at 5:32 am |

    Never fired one. I owned an HK for a while though and the problem I had with the HK is that it leaves a dent in the brass upon ejection that ruins spent brass for reloading. I have no idea if the PTR 91 has the same problem.
    The calibur is the most important thing. You want to avoid CQC in a SHTF.
    I picked the AR for it’s reliability, parts availibility and accuracy. There is no other platform that can rate so high in all three. In a SHTF senario you would want those attributes.

  8. YP, what is your opinion of a PTR 91?

    “its like the guy with the small dick” freaking funny and so true.

    If you cannot afford a .308 AR (1000$+)… Saiga does make a AK variant in .308. (500$+)

    Another “budget” .308 is the Stevens (by Savage Arms) 200 Short. It’s a bolt action with 5rd capacity. They’re hard to find but they can be found (around $350) Stevens/Savage are extremely accurate right out of the box.

    dude…i am so glad i found someone else here who knows what their talking about…

    i cannot tell you how many people i have had to teach this crap.

    Skill is very important, yet…if you are breaking up a slab of concrete with a rubber mallet as the tool….it’s going to take a LONG time. The right tool and the skill to use it.

  13. mountainghost556 | April 21, 2010 at 9:39 am |

    It seems to me that most of the people have gotten tunnel vision…weather it is your hands or a knife..AK or AR they are simply tools …you would not call your self a carpenter if you do not know how the difference between a sledge hammer Vs a rubber mallet…it is how you use them..

  16. I own a RRA 308 AR ….takes Fal mags…cheap !..and my
    Fal uses the same mags!!

    In my humble opinion, the AK is the best rifle for its intended purpose: medium-range use by peasant conscripts. It was never intended for use by skilled marksmen. Comparing it was an AR, either .223 or .308, really is apples and oranges. I try not to get emotional about my guns, too.

    Well some of us voiced our opinions onto deaf ears when our brain dead politicans told our military to stop using the M-14 and the 45 caliber pistol.
    Now they want to go back the wishie washie bastards. “The men can carry more 223 than 308! The 308 and 45 are just too devastating to human tissue.” And all that bull I carry an HK-91 and a 45 and I’ve just learned to pack it around with me.

  20. Yankeeprepper | April 21, 2010 at 1:18 pm |

    I have to add as well that the 308 has other facets to take advantage of as well. A skilled man can make up serious AP rounds on a 308. That can pierce engine blocks at 600 meters. or other heavily armored items.

  21. Yankeeprepper | April 21, 2010 at 1:56 pm |

    The guys that own the cheap AK’s are the one that think they jam alot. It make them feel better. Do your research. Check out the links I attached. For your first bit of research, I can tell you….that AR’s are a very reliable weapon system

    I would say yes to all your questions and even more so in a city enviroment. (Although, in a rural enviroment you might have to take a very long desperate shot hunting in a SFTF.)Take Iraq and Bosnia as examples. I don’t know how bad it could get, but history can show you how bad its has gotten. To ignore that is foolish. Furthermore, I would much rather be be able to take the shot if I had to rather than need to and can’t.

    Like I said, facts and reality is not an obstacle here on youtube.

  25. MrLockandload | April 21, 2010 at 3:55 pm |

    the only thing i can say is why would you be planning on shooting targets at 800-1000 yrds in wrol? in a urban sit, that is blocks away. are they a threat to you that far way? can you pos ID people that far away as a threat to you? what is your mindset sir. i would like to know what you think about this.
