iresh9 I agree,My dad carried a garand in the Korean war and he said one night we were told to hump it to a road where enemy convoy was bringing supplys to the enemy and to hurry and get over there and stop that supply run.They got there too late to set up an ambush and the convoy was a good 300 yards ahead,my dads friends said my dad took sight(open) on the lead truck and shot the radiator and left front tire,and that stopped the supply.My dad said he was aiming at the tail gate but every body new my dad shot the garand well and a 300 yard open sight 2 shots and the supply ended.The 223 would have not had that kind of effect.Drop-Shot

hey jr here,

I have allways wanted a .223 for target shooting and varmints. right now I shoot my 1903 springfield for target and hunting big game. at the moment I am working on a lighter load for for little crittiers. the only problem with the big calibers for little crittiers is the amount of gun powder used to get the velocity to shot some what flat to 200yrd.

thats where the .223 comes in cheaper bullets and less gun powder, to achieve the goals of an accurate load with small costs.

I had a Colt AR-15 for a while and really learned to like the .223 round. Its big enough to get a thrill from shooting it that you don't get with 22lr or 22mags. I finally sold the AR and later bought a Ruger Mini 14 Ranch Rifle chambered in .223. It's really been fun refinishing the stock, adding accessories like flash hider and removable scope and mount. I came on some hi-cap magazines in 20 and 30 round. You can buy almost as much stuff for the Ruger as you can an AR-15. The best thing is that the ammunition is cheaper than dirt. As a matter of fact I order 200 rds at a time from www.cheaperthandirt.com

I've been eyeballing a short little M-4 carbine looking version of the AR-15 for quite a while. Short little boogers work well as a "RIFLE" but are aslo nice and compact and light.

Jrboltaction the 223 is a great varmit and plinker round.After I buy the house we are looking at I want to save to build an ar15 from a kit like ron Kontonsky posted.The 223 is light for humans but fun to shoot,I used to own 2 ruger semi-autos and they were a blast to shoot.Good Luck.Drop-Shot
