Re: Black Gun Purchase

Congratulations on your purchase. I suggest you get the 20 round mags - the 30's extend down to far if you plan to shoot off a bench. With mags you got to be careful what you buy there is a lot of junk out there. I have had good success with the ones DPMS sells. I also buy the colt's whenever I can find them. As far as bullets I like the Barnes varmit gernades for hunting. For general shooting or hunting sod poodles I like the Winchester 55 grain PSP's. Have also had the best success with Varget powder.

If I were shooting factory there is no beating black hills, with a 1-8 I would start with the lighter stuff 35-55g range. All depends what your budget is I would love to use Barns bullets but I can afford them so I use serria and hornady.
With an 8 twist I was leaning towards the heavier bullets rather than the lighter bullets, thinking 55-80gr. I'm not sure but I thought the various 77gr .224 bullets were designed for the AR platform. I wonder how they would perform on P-dogs.
