  1. Shooting sticks for coyotes and etc.?

    I did a test set with 1/2" dowls That was a little weak.so I stepped up to 5/8. There solid as any other 50$ sticks.
  2. Shooting sticks for coyotes and etc.?

    Here's a good idea I stole. Less than 5$ and bam. A nice set of shooting sticks. If you have a shop of sorts you probably have the stuff laying around. 1'x5/8"id braid hose. 2 36"x5/8"od dowels. 2 3" nails. Between the 5"and 8" section of the hose.cut a section out of one side.leave the other for the hinge part/gun rest. Then pop the dowles in the section of the hose you cut.flip it over slap the nails in the end of the dowel to dig in the dirt.paint it and your done. I put tape over my hose because any paint I tried rubs off on my guns.
  3. What did I get myself into?

    Well done magwa! My season just ended for deer. We have late elk but that's for archery and muzzle loader. I'm gonna do some test in the off season and see what I come up with. Between the new mags and the bullet choices I hope to come up with a flawless setup. I really want to put a elk up and a few deer with this thing.

    Ok. I like the customised ones. I will have to check it out. I may send it out to a gun Smith to work it over.its not worth my time to buy all the tools for a one time project. Switch hand guard and put a sling stud on it and a new cover with a sweet logo is all I'm looking for. I did some more shooting with 150gr soft point.still chewed up my tips.still haven't got my spare mags.It was dead on. It seems to like the 150gr. Despite the reviews I read.

    It flys open and will work great if I manually cycle a clip. Evin if i close it after every pull of the handle. Closed with no clip I can rip it and it flys open. Go hot and close the door it acts up. I like it there for the fact it keeps some junk out of the chamber and bolt area. It's gets exposed to all four seasons so any aid to help keep junk out is good.
  7. Got a other one here! This is dog poop!

  9. Feed issue

    Ok guys so again today I was reminded of another problem. I missed a deer today and AGAIN my dust cover hinders proper ejection and feed. Only if the cover is shut. Any fixes or tweak this... Another question I have is my stock adjusts two ways.one of which allows access to the "battery storage"in the butt of the rifle. The butt has a few spots of adjustment. I assume it's to allow a shooter to raise the the gun/cheek rest for a better shot and feel. Like I said before I'm new to the AR so be easy on me. The miss was all me not the gun for any people in question.

    Great! I'll for sure look at metal mags I run rra Polly. Any just absolutely devastating polly tip rounds you guys run? I love the partition for the fact it goes threw trees and still kills. I run hornady stbt 180 with 56gr of powder in my bolt gun.drops any thing I touch. But they don't hold up to great on large animals.elk moose.iv never ran any poly tips.my buddies do but there not as in to accuracy with devastating power like me.i hate to trail my animal. It's idaho no utah.hits why I use a .30 cal on coyote. But this gun stays in my truck 24/7. So it has the possibility of taking out cougar elk or deer.so I need a round that will turn a elk shoulder to soup, yet feed like a pro.im gonna by a new mag a work it like washguy stated.

    Hey guys Noob to ar here. I live in idaho since birth. Killed my elk at 14 alone at 560yards with a mark2 30-06.that was my day I feel in love with hunting. I have owned bolt guns only this is my first ar. I only hunt so I'm not to into all the fancy stuff. I love my bolt gun.this rra is good never shot another to compare but it seems to be a good gun. It's roped with a vx1 3x9.works great. I don't drop 500 rounds at the range for the fact it's a hunting gun not a toy. It has 200 rounds ran threw so far. I would love your input on hand guards that have the stud swivel taped or a good handguard to replace my m16 looking one. Other than that i love it.no changes needed. It has 20" heavy barrel ,magpull flip ups, car stock,vx1 3x9. Great little gun. But it weighs a ton. i work out side and fix all my own auto.i run cats with hounds trap in the off season. Camp in a 1950 ww2 wall tent with stove. Just a country boy with his first ar so that's me.

    Same issue no matter the mag.fmj is good because it's a solid tip. It still bust up the nose a little. You can see where it hits on the side of the breach.see the small grayish spot right by the chamber next to the spec of brass.thats where it hits.

    Hey guys New here but not to hunting. I'm a first time owner of a ar. So I pick rra lar8. It's cool.killed a few yoties. But when it cycles the noise of the seconed and fourth round gets messed up. I don't plan on shooting crap ammo.its a hunting gun for deer and dogs. So I only shoot soft point. My choice this year is a 150 partition from federal.the first round loads like butter.the second gets beat to hell. Therd loads fine.fouth gets beat to hell. And so on. It looks to be pushing to far to the right when in grabs the second and fourth round. Any ideas? I'm only worried because it looks to be a factor in my grouping. Single shot it's 1moa. Put a clip threw and you start to get 3moa. Same ammo. It's hade ppu150, winchester150,federal partition150. It's beats the second and fourth round to hell no matter what.
