Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?
I found that most of my shots were very long ones on the Montana prairie, and I carry my rifle most of the time (try slinging an AR15 with scope while skiing), so I sold my last AR15 and bought another bolt rifle with a 4X-16X Burris ballistic reticle scope.
Also, a CZ 527 at just under 6 pounds is lighter (same weight as a CZ 452 in .22LR) but longer barrelled and has a MUCH better trigger out of the box and carries a lot more comfortably than any AR15 I ever held in my hands. Not to mention it is steel where the AR15 is aluminum and comes with scope mounts at a lesser cost.
When varmints arm themselves (not necessarily the 4-legged kind), I will go back to the AR15 and 30-round mags or something similar. I believe my FAL with 20-round mags qualifies as something similar.
The CZ 527 "hits" on all counts, in front of or behind the muzzle.
