Ron White, Jr, Chief Instructor
During a recent Long Range Precision Rifle Course –II (LRPR) – The ASW-308 rifle was used by students (JW& IM) throughout the entire
 LRPR II courseThe student and his spotter were the “Class Top Shot” Graduates of the Course.  IM also serves as an Assistant Instructor at D.R. LRC.  JW had very little difficulty adjusting the chassis to his body makeup.  Using the tool-less length of pull & cheek piece adjustments, he quickly made this rifle his own for the weekend with no black shadows in the day optic and a clear field of view.

They zeroed the rifle at 100 yards, slipped the zero on the Mark 6 with ease and pressed on through the many target exposures with much success.  It was obvious, from the Instructors view, this team was going to be very successful using this equipment.  This rifle system made alternate shooting positions much easier as well.  The recoil was very light enabling the shooter to see splash on targets and/or quick second round engagements.

 

This rifle engaged targets from 100-1116 yards with ease, placing sub ½ MOA accuracy on target with a team that understands rapid wind calls.  Our Instructors fired the rifle and each was extremely impressed with the Surgeon action, trigger and overall feel of the rifle platform.  The impression was a lasting one.  I absolutely fell in love with this rifle and will highly recommend this as a proven platform that gets the job done in a very accurate fashion.  The TACT3 Tripod Kit is an outstanding piece of kit, keeping the spotter low profile, stabile tripod with rails for LRF’s, lasers, etc.  We are Dealers for APO. 

 

 

D.R. Long Range Concepts, Senior Instructor (B.D.)
While instructing a long range rifle course for 
D.R. Long Range Concepts, I had the opportunity to get my hands on a new Ashbury Precision Ordnance ASW-308 Precision Tactical Rifle.  My first impression right out of the case was that it’s a great looking rifle!  From the carbon fiber forend to the muzzle brake, the rifle was sexy.

 

The Quattro carbon fiber forend not only looks great, but adds functionality and weight reduction.  As we began to manipulate the rifle, I noticed more and more that I liked it a lot.  The folding shoulder stock is really nice and makes it easier to transport.  The adjustable cheek piece and shoulder stock are a must for a quality precision rifle.  Having the ability to adjust the rifle to the shooter with little effort is great.  As we know, everyone’s physical make up is different from facial structure to their length of pull, so each rifle can be customized to the shooter.

 

The rail system allows the shooter to add any “cool guy gadget” you can think of, from lasers to ni
