Re: BNIB Unfired Custom Built Long Range AR
Long range does start in the .2? Range, .22-250, .260, .270 and so very many more. But .223, though ok for up to 350-500 yards accurately it's not a long range cal. The .3? Range does offer many fine options for long range, but if one is familiar with weight of bullet, grains of and types of powder and how to properly know which primer to set when the casing is sized, just about any caliber can be made for long range if one knows what they are doing and knows how to properly load/reload and studies how to properly make that shot. The one mile can be made even with different .22 caliber cartridges if one knows what they are doing and has help from a gunsmith. So very many factors, yes a custom .223 with properly loaded shells can and are used for long range.
