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.

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 just finished a build gun Thursday.

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
