Good points. I'm very fond of the AR-15 as well, but it doesn't change what it is capable of. Taking the "black rifle equation" out of it, and looking at the cartridge itself, it is little more than a varmint round. And a medium range one at that. While some may have taken deer size game with it, that is really pushing the limit of what the little round is capable of, and the reason it is illegal to hunt deer with it in many states. It just doesn't have enough soup. Bill T.jeffdorr said:It's asking a lot of the little .223/5.56x45 to go past 500 yards. Possible, sure. But practical? A .22lr can concievably travel over a mile, but it's practical use is 50-100 yards. Jeff

Just lookin to simplify the logistical chain. Benchmark would only be used on 223.
