    I am looking at building an AR-15 for long range fun.
    I am looking at a 22 dasher but might consider a 22 BR.
    I would shoot 75 -88 gr. Bullets mostly hornady (I live in Grand Island Ne.)
    I am not wanting to turn necks.
    And I have a UMAR lower.
    I would like to here some advice and where to get components for the build.
    Thanks Shawn

    Check the 224 valkyrie, will more than do what you want and factory ammo to boot

    I would rather do the 22 Grendel.
    And I had considered the 22 Grendel until I fell into this 22-250 AR-15 but it is limited to the lighter bullets. That is why I was thinking about the dasher since I already had a 308 bolt face.
    And it would beat the Grendel and the valkyrie.
    I already have one in 223 that shoots lights out at 600
