.30 cal AR-15 in the woods

4 posts in this topic

I have a stand where a guy can only shoot about 50 yards. I thought it might be fun to use my AR-15 chambered in 7.62X39 this year.

The ballistics are similar to a 30-30 so it's not like it won't do the job, but my question is, how much grief will I get from people (or COs)who have no idea that a "black rifle" can be chambered in many things other than .223?

I would assume as long as the round is within legal limits to hunt...no one should give ya a hard time. I will be honest, I would probably do a double take seeing someone exit the woods during deer season holding a gun that has been traditionally chambered for .223. As long as you can show its chambered for a legal round....enjoy yourself.

Anyone who is familiar with the AR would know that there is getting to be more and more larger calibers available for them. I wouldn't think twice about using it....

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
