Actually, what you have no way of knowing is that the person Keith mentioned......shot free recoil. It took him 3-4x longer to get a shot off than someone would normally take even with a bolt action. An AR unnerved him but that doesn't make it typical of non-AR shooters.

Neither Keith nor I have ever noticed an AR having any effect on how quickly pd's (or squirrels) duck for cover. It's a non-factor.

It's true that a good shooting AR is useful on varmints.

This spring, I hit Florida, but missed Texas by "this much." This winter will find me in Texas as originally intended. My .243 Winchester will accompany me, loaded for "BEAR." However, Texas has more pigs than bears. I still have some .243 hunting loads, although attaining new primers and bullets seems nearly impossible, at reasonable prices right now. Texans are still in the midst of the worst drought in years. When I hit Florida in May, it was in terrible drought conditions, but the day I left, it has rained almost everyday since. Okay, blame me for the constant rains since I left Florida. Cliffy

Yeah really...x2!

Just had an opportunity to use my ISSI AR .223AI in a match. It's a steel PD match 4x9" silhouettes from 200-425 yds. I have a Weaver V-16 on top with a T.K. Lee reticle that looks like this--

.--.--.
---.
---.
---.

3/8ths MOA dot center, .25 next down and the rest are 1/8th. All 3 MOA apart and 4 MOA windage.

I lost my DPMS VLD bolt stop so i couldn't use my 65 JLK load to compete with (if anybody knows where i can get another i'd sure appreciate it), so i just loaded up some 69 Sierras, checked group size/mv, calcd. the trajectory to reticle subtension, and ran 1 relay in the informal match. Thought i did OK at 7 out of 10--about avg. i think (think i would've got another 1 if i could've seen it from my shooting position). Most guys were using high dollar optics and running turrets. I sort of wanted to see if my reticle would fair well enuf, and i came away satisfied.

Sure love that rig. Next up is testing the 75 A-Max to see at what range i can expect decent terminal effect on coyotes. I'm running 2950 with it out of the 26" Hart, so...any ideas?

To TUCK2, I have a Ruger Model 77 Mark II with a 1-12" twist 22" barrel that shoots inside half an inch at 100 yards with 55 grain Berger varmint/target bullets. At a 7 3/4 pound rifle weight, less scope weight, this combo maybe what you're looking for. My Burris Signature Select 6-24x44mm is a bit pricey at $565, but sometimes you get what you pay for. This combination works for me out well-passed 200 yards. Cliffy
