Guns & Ammo TV: Springfield Armory Saint Victor .308 Win.

The Springfield Armory Saint Victor chambered in .308 Winchester combines firepower with maneuverability in a compact and ergonomic platform. In this segment of “At The Range,” Col. Craig Boddington, USMC (ret.), reviews this rifle and explains what makes it one of the best AR-10-pattern semiauto rifles on the market.

At 7.8 pounds, Springfield Armory’s approach to the AR-10-style rifle is not much heavier than a an AR-15 chambered in 5.56 NATO, which is typically around 7 pounds. With this, however, the shooter benefits from authority of the 7.62 NATO/.308 Win. The .308 Win. is a combat-proven performer made even more effective with cartridges such as Black Hills’ 168-grain Tipped MatchKing load. Equipped with a Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50mm F1, every bit of accuracy can be extracted.

Flip-up battle sights are included to round out a well-equipped package. Even though it shoots a larger cartridge, the BCM six-position buttstock and 15-inch M-LOK handguard makes handling easy and intuitive. And we think you’ll love its nickel-boron (NiB)-coated flat-faced trigger. It offers all the safety of a GI-style trigger but is slicked up by the lubricity properties of the NiB coating.

The Springfield Armory Saint Victor series is known for its reliability and shootability. Now you, too, can enjoy the AR platform in .308 Win.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
