Went to the Dark Side (Only Joking)
Had the chance to have a AR platform built so I took the plunge. Now I am not new to the AR (Carried one for Years, Many years). But have always been a fan of bolt rifles for the accuracy, with the vast improvement made and floating barrels, they don’t shoot one hole, but I have rifles that will (provided I do my part).
Had a 1-7 twist barrel enabling the shooting of heavy bullets, worked up the load that I like and the rifle likes. Feeding the rifle 68gr HPBT’s moving at 2950.
I did resist the BIGGER is better battle on the scopes, stayed with a nice little 2-7 power, I killed lots of animals with a fixed 4 power, I don’t think I need a 6-18 power scope to shoot coyotes? I have reached out to 300yds with the set up now, I can call them in closer than that.
Mags: they tried to load me up with a bunch of 20 rds mags; I passed on them and took 1 5 rd, and 2 10 rd. mags. If I cannot get the dog in 5 rds, what good is a 20 rd going to do?
have to forgive the mess in the room, lots of cleaning, lots of relaoding, lots of shooting
