    No doubt they are 1k yd rifles. The AR10s I would think more so. AR15 cals, maybe not quite 1k yds for even p-dogs. And they are hunting rifles no problems there. I'd say they belong on the forum.

    They are 1k rifles if they are in the right caliber and the shooter knows his/her dope on it ! There are many calibers out there now that will do the task some are the 6mm AR Turbo IMP. ,6.5 Grendel.25 wssm etc. They will be there at 600 yrds. no problem. The larger AR 10 platform has many choices for everything but with that you have the extra weight and that is where the smaller 15 platform comes into the scene. I really would like to see the stigma of the Black Rifle be wiped away and given a fair chance by everyone even if they don't shoot or never plan on owning one .

    Len, this is great news ! But, you're so good at seeing trends; and the Ar is more than a trend in MHO. I've just about given up on shooting bolt guns now that I've seen how accurate the ARs can be. No doubt about it; they positively RULE in the PD towns ! I have four complete ARs and three more lowers. Always looking to talk ARs with like minded people. Lots of choices in calibers, barrels, makers. I'll never forget a good friend, God rest his soul, who I believe was the first guy to look at an AR and say, "I bet I can make that thing shoot better". So he pulled the barrel and put a heavy "bull" barrel on it and sure enough, it shot, as I remember, sub MOA. That was waaay back in the late 60s. Not much else took place til recent years; then it exploded on the scene! TV shows, magazines, forums, custom builders, custom parts. Yeah, I think it's more than a trend. Thanks for getting this started; it's much appreciated !

    I understand that custom AR's can have 1/2 moa accuracy.

    Len,

    You understand incorrectly; plenty of run of the mill ARs will deliver 1/2 MOA. I'd expect that at a minimum from a good custom built rifle with a decent barrel. My friend John Feamster once entered a registered BenchRest match with one, and shot an "official screamer" group with it in one of the 100 yard matches. That's a five-round group coming in at under 0.1" or roughly 1/10th MOA.

    Benchresters really hate it when things like this happen.

    Len, I kinda think you understand correctly ...about custom uppers. Yes, they will and better shoot 1/2 inch or less or you over paid ! But, Kevin is also right; several "store" bought ARs will shoot 1/2 inch. I have three custom uppers in wildcat cal.s that routinely shoot in the 3s with 1s and 2s not that uncommon. Charles
