I have a Bushmaster M-4 but it is only a 100 yard gun. Give me a bolt rifle for 300 yard shots. I know that you could put a heavy barrel on an AR and accurize it a million different ways but why bother? .223 is a 100 yard man stopper that will probably end up getting replaced with the .300 AAC Blackout or the .300 Whisper. You could kill a deer with a rock too but there are better alternatives. I guess if you are cash strapped and need a home defense/hunting package in one platform go nuts.
The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth,upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fish; into your hand are they delivered.

I'm using the Barnes Vor-Tx 55 grain in my ar. You guys think it will do the trick?

Well I am a little old and getting fi rgetfull but if I remember when I qualified on the m16 we shot out to 300 yards. Now I know the other rifles are better then the m16. My brother would use a bolt 223 for long rang all the time. It is not my first choice if I was shooting long shots in a field. That is why I carry a 308

I'm going to take mine out a few times this year

I just finished a build gun Thursday.
I might take it out once or twice.

I always laugh at people who claim a 223 is not big enough for deer

Well it is not a good deer cartridge but it can definitely kill one.

Makes an even better elk cartridge though \:D
