  1. When considering larger frame ARs for 308 and similar calibers, the 3-gun focused recommendation has always been to go for lower reciprocating mass internals to reduce recoil and disturbance from the carrier moving. OK, got that. Makes perfect sense and if I shoot Heavy Metal that's absolutely the way I will go. However, in other places (not around BE.com) I have seen people discuss using full mass carriers to help with long range precision AR work. They make comments about trying to extend lock up while shooting. I wasn't clear if it was for accuracy or trying to work the brass less. These aren't fast double taps like in close range 3-gun but instead single long range precision shots. Is there any merit to using a full-mass carrier for a large frame AR upper dedicated to precision shooting? Seems like the recoil would be more pronounced. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
