Got er home. I like the sites and compact nature of it. Close quarters it would work nicely. Seems like about half the weight of the bushmaster which has a bi-pod on it.

Ran any rounds though this yet?

I cleaned one of my pistols last night from when me @jmanz went shooting. Gonna do another tonight. It's kinda fun actually.
The wife hates the cleaning fluid smell. Have to go out to the garage or barn to do it.

I love the smell of Hoppes.
I'd like to use it as a cologne. I've picked the AR556 up a number of times. Sure like how it feels. The bushmaster Varminter with the 24 inch barrel and bipod is pretty unwieldy and heavy. (not a truck gun by any stretch) (limited to sniper gun almost exclusively) 

Looks pretty close to this one:

What round should a guy get for AR556? (Target/home defense) (no steel)  I've looked at a bunch of them but can't decide.

I have been just using Wolf ammo .223, since I can get it for about $6 locally for 20 rounds. They are just FMJ, great for target shooting. Home defense maybe a Hornady.

That's a good price. Do they group well? I suppose in a defense emergency, they'd take out an attacker.

Quite well actually. I have used Wolf ammo a lot. Russian made and always a good price. My carry stuff I always go with a hollow point, but for target shooting works great.

When you think about it, that's what 22 magnum prices were for the longest time. I wonder why 22 magnum gouges a guy so heavy?
