I use mine for coyotes and prairie dogs. Real good for the dogs as you get quick follow up shots. I love it to death and will buy another one on Friday.

This is BloodbrotherBob a buddy on another Forum and the Rifle he put together.

It is 99% DPMS Panther Arms AR-15 / 223Rem using 55gr standard soft point bullets. It has a Barska 3x9x42mm scope with illuminated recticle and 500 yard bullet drop compensator. The stock is from a colt. It has alot of attitude packed in it as well!

Mine was estimated at 260#
Standard 55gr softpoint which busted his rib on the way in and lodged in the hyde on the far side, it mushroomed nicely.

It's only a matter of time before the Dem's quote you and try to take them away.

I shoot all sorts of critters with my AR. It is my go-to pickup gun, fits nicely in between my 60/40 split bench seat.

To each is own. I have no use for these rifles at all. However unlike Zumbo, I defend to the end other peoples rights to own and hunt with one if it jerks their chain. Never been into semi auto rifles.
