In reading a number of posts it appears that you all like either the XM193 55 gr. bullet or the M855 62 gr. bullet. I think the XM 193 bullet is what I want to use, BUT
I see that Federal American Eagle offers the XM 193 bullet in a loaded round that sells for $.48 a round at Midway. That seems...
I built myself an AR-15 to use for predator control. Coyotes and other "pest" have been killing my chickens.
This is the build I came up with:
Palmetto State Armory Freedom upper receiver. Instead of chrome lined the Freedom series barrels have a melonite finish. Twist is 1:7. 16 inch...
I aquired 10+ lbs of .223 / 5.56 cases I was going thru them and found several where the necks were split.
What causes this?
Can they be used for something else? I know there are some calibers that be made from other caliber cases.
I am needing some command guidance on some reloaded 223 ammo a hunting friend loaded from ages ago did for me. Its been 15yrs or so but I tried load it in my mag for the mini 14 and the very front of the bullet hits the edge of the magazine. Do you think I could just push the bullet down in the...
This may not be the appropriate forum to post this but I'm going to anyway.
I have owned the Mini 14 for over a year and my favorite plinking ammo (Federal American Eagle 223 Remington 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail) has gone up over $1 per box.
Since I buy by the case I have often...
What I have now...
Bushmaster AR15, originally had a fixed carry handle, swaped it over to a flat top....

Over the past few months I have been looking at buying another AR. After doing a good bit of research I have narrowed down my choices to Spikes and a DS Arms.
Spikes - makes a great rifle, is mil-spec, people love it.
DS Arms - known more for its FN/FAL then its AR-15s.
The thing is, I have a...
From this page, which rifle and why?
AR15-M16 Rifles-D S Arms
Please, lets keep the cost at around $1,000 or less.
The rifles I am looking at are the:
I would like something with a flattop.
My other options are a S&W M&P, or maybe even a Spikes.
If you know of...
Scottsdale Gun Club touts the LMT as very reliable, but it sells for $ 1249. Aim.com sells the Spikes Tactical for $ 770. I'd like to buy from a bricks and mortar dealer so I can get quick service on any issues, but the price difference is an issue.
In an earlier post I wrote about the fact I could not get my brand new Mini-14 to zero on the iron sights. Even with the rear sight peep drifted all the way to the right, it still shot a bit to the left of the bull. I packed it up and sent it back to Ruger on their dime. That was two weeks ago...
I would like some suggestions on what is the best AR-15 in the sub-$1,000 price range.
Some of the rifles I have looked at are:
Chamber must be 5.56mm
Flat top would be nice
16 inch barrel
Lifetime warranty would be nice
Rifle is going to be...
Stunned by .233 to 5.56….
I see a lot of postings about the difference in dimensions and pressures for .223 and 5.56 but not about
how different they shoot…….read on…..
I shot about 80 rounds of PMC 55gr FMJ .223 at 100 yards with a 4X scope and a bi-pod and sand bags.
Pattern was within...
