Why do you switch to a .223 with a proper barrel length, instead of quoting your pos 11" car?223 fan said:V max, at 500 yds, in the chest, from the SAME OAL 223 as an M1A. That bullet will still have 1800 fps, still expand,and still dump all of its 530 ft lbs in you. Those who "think" a 223 has no power beyond 200-300m are just IGNORANT of the facts, that's all.
you really like proving over and over again why your 10" AR is a poor choice. You keep posting examples showing how an AR with a decent barrel length is a good choice. How come you never post your 10" shorty as being capable in this examples? It is almost as though you know your choice sucks.m1A has 22" barrel, 3" flashhider, and a LONGER action than the AR. So a 24" barreled 223, with an adequate 1" long flashider, is the SAME oal. Such a barrel starts that 75 gr bullet at 3000 fps.
nobody thinks that, other than from your POS 10" (which isn't shooting these rounds anyway)V max, at 500 yds, in the chest, from the SAME OAL 223 as an M1A. That bullet will still have 1800 fps, still expand,and still dump all of its 530 ft lbs in you. Those who "think" a 223 has no power beyond 200-300m are just IGNORANT of the facts, that's all.
I load a 225 gr Barnes tripple shock for my .338 that is .75 MOA from the bench, more than adequate for elk, bear, moose, etc. (it will also punch a ceramic plate at 100 yards - we did some testing)I've become a big fan of the Barnes solid copper bullet line. I've only used the factory-loaded stuff so far (both Barnes & Remington brands), but have been very impressed with them overall. The 130-grain Remington Hog Hammer is the load I've settled on for my .300 blackout pistol, and even the ancient and usually-anemic .45Colt caliber gets a boost from Barnes loads. Their 200-grain "XPB" solid copper HP runs a little over 500 ft/lbs from the 5" revolver and over 750 ft/lbs from the 20" rifle. That's very good for a load that's not a "ruger-only" or +P load.
