Outfitting Your AR For Hunting (Page 2)

Turn today’s modern sporting rifle into the ultimate hunting rig.

Unless you plan to shoot prairie dogs from a benchrest, you’re going to want some type of sling for your AR. Forget the standard rifle sling and opt instead for a tactical sling. Whether it’s a single point or multipoint is a matter of preference. The single-point attaches to where the castle nut holds the buffer tube in place. While lacking the comfort of a wider sling, single-point slings allow the user to toss the rifle behind his or her back and out of the way when toting items or climbing and in front of him at the ready when on a stalk. A multipoint sling is more comfort for long hikes, is more traditional in how it works, but also allows a hunter to tote the gun in a ready position toward the front of his body.

Yeah John The 6.8 uses the 270 bullet...but I would like heavier .270 bullets in 6.8

I kill deer and hogs all day long with my ar-15, I just use the right kind of ammo to get the job done nicely. I use 79gr. DRT ammo (great ammo, look them up) and have never had a deer go more than 30 yds. Every hog I shoot drops on the spot when hit in the lungs.

Cody is right 6.5 Grendal is awesome, just hard to get ammo for.

Would be nice if the RA platform was chambered in a common mid to large size game caliber like .270. Great for mule deer and elk if placed right
