I have great accuracy from my bushmasters. I think somebody is trying to be an "internet expert" when they tell you that bushmaster (one of the THE most popular AR makers) makes a less than acceptable weapon.
TOP performance from 223 packaged weapons have come from potimal 18 inch stiff barreled weapons. LE custom performance guns are now built on bull barrel 18 in max platforms unless they are for other (larger) calibers.
From my 25th aniversary bushmaster (I just sold) with its varmiter fluted barrel I could get touching rounds at 100 yards with Hornady 62 grn TAP ammo. Not bad for a 16 in barrel rifle meant for close quarters combat use
Some think that the DPMS is acutally of lesser qaulity than the bushmaster or colts. Personally, if its a Mil-Spec weapon, they are all the same. The government requires them to be! I've owned Colts and won't own another though just due to quality control issues from factory.
