I finally broke down and bought an AR...here it is...
You may know this... but I THINK this is a flattop (or can be) the carry handle comes of and theres a mounting rail under there.Nice i have been thinking about a flattop model
thats a flat top them one i was looking at i didnt know they came with the carry handleYou may know this... but I THINK this is a flattop (or can be) the carry handle comes of and theres a mounting rail under there.
I'm new at these AR's myself...I owned a Colt HBAR very briefly several years ago.
I am amazed at the accuracy of this rifle...it is SOOOO easy to shoot accurately...even offhand.
Me and my son put 800 rounds through it today....popped a few crows at 300 yards too. It ran like a champ...I kept the bolt lubed about every 100 rounds or so.
They were factory Remington UMC and Ultramax (400 rounds of each)...I dont have a recipe yet but I'm working on one...I have the dies ordered.Ridge- that 800 rds, was it factory or your loads? And if it was yours, what's your recipe?
Are you guys referring to steel cased ammo that varnishes the chamber as it heats up?I'm learning too...I remember reading something about a part getting carbon build up....I don't remember what it was either.
I plan on using mine for coyotes and maybe deer if it proves to be accurate enough on the coyotes, and I think it will be.
I just made sure the bolt stayed lubed yesterday...I used Mobil 1, it seems to work good...I didn't notice any wear at all, and I looked VERY close. No shiny spots inside on the aluminum...steel sliding back and forth in aluminum 800 times (with some of them at high RPM), and it didn't even wear the finish off the aluminum.
