Panther .308... Good or Bad?

Is the Panther .308 a good buy or a bad one? I already have a .308 Remington.

I could be wrong but I think the DPMS and the Remington R25 are almost the same animal.

My limited experience with my DPMS LR308 has been positive. More accurate with iron sights than I can hold.

If you get DPMS instead of Remington, you do not spend the $200 or so on the camo finish.

My DPMS has been absolutely outstanding, but as stated earlier, it should now be the exact same thing as your Remington since they (Rem, Bushmaster, and DPMS) are all owned by the same folks.
