Most useful Ar15 caliber (not 556)
Looking in to my next AR upper build. I have a .556 16Ē upper right now with a decent scope. But 556 has its limits on one shot stops and the scope while is great it does fog up when changing climates (ie hot to cold). I have been kicking around the idea of building a new upper for it. Something in a ďtruck gunĒ category, iron sights 200 yards and in. I canít hunt deer with a rifle so just coyotes and other varmints are all I would be shooting now. But would like to use it on a hog hunt as well in the future.
I donít reload or plan to start.
I want to use it on my current rifle lower so 16Ē barrel
Canít have a suppressor either in this state so thatís out as well.
Calibers Iím considering
300 black out
Cost of ammo and availability are pretty big factors for me. Mostly a availability. I had a 25/06 loved that gun but never could find ammo for it.
