re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Thanks Harvey,
I just found out that a club I used to shoot at has a 600yd range now. Might have to load some heavier rounds, and give it a try. If I had a range finder, I'd set my own targets up in one of the gravel pits I have permission to hunt in, but all in good time!! Just bought a Fox Pro Caller so my wife will have to digest that one, before a range finder goes in the bag!! What powder do you use, and what length and twist is your AR?
Have a great one,
Mike

Hey Silvertip,
I've got a group of friends here in Michigan that don't "own" any either.....But they sure shoot a lot of them!! Strange thing is, some of them use these funny looking blue hard hats as targets down range?!?!?!

Hi Mike..

I have one of the first Colt HBAR's....1-7 twist, 20 inch chromed bore barrel. It's been modified a bit by Compass Engineering (Fla.) for Service Rifle comp. Mostly 4 1/2 pound trigger, sleeve under the hand guard, .050 front post and 1/2 min sight adjustments. I use a 16x scope for load development.

I've used many different powders in it since '90. I like H-322 for the 68-70 gr. bullets (2-300 yds) and 2520, Varget, 4895, 4320, N-140, N-540 and RL-15 with the 80 gr bullets.
I've tried 90 gr JLK bullets. They shoot as well as the 80 gr. JLK's, but there was no real advantage, since the velocity was less.

I've had good results with the JLK, Sierra, Nosler and Berger VLD bullets. I like the JLK's best (best B.C.) but Sierra and possibly Nosler have thicker jackets for higher velocities (also shoot a 22/250)

Harvey/ Ga

I don't own one because I can't legally hunt with one in PA. I might not own one even if I could hunt with one.

RRA predator pursuit

I used to be against ar's too since you cant hunt with them in certain states but after buying one that certainly changed my mind, i carry that gun with me everywhere and plan on buying more.
