Interested in sighting in the new AR-15, where is the closest prairie dog town from here ?

I know SD has many but they are not just around the corner.

The deal went through huh? put up a picture of that bad boy.... I found in my AR, with 1:9 twist that I shoot the 50 grain American Eagle HP flat bases, extremely well. Steer clear of the Wolf Ammunition Val, you will be gald you did.....

Yes deal went through, not quite as I planned, I bought a DPMS Panther Bull Twenty.

Downside is they don't have any in stock, timeframe is 4 weeks frown.gif , but my friend dealer told me last time he ordered one it came in 5 days.

I am buying a scope for it, I'm undecided between a Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x50 or a Nikon Monarch UCC 5.5-16.5x44

pretty sure either one of those will be a good choice, I am assuming it is a flat top, have you figured out the mounting yet?

I have a couple bowling pins around the house I was going to auger out so I can put some re-rod into....set them out them 300-400 yards if Le Suere would let me....

It's a little expensive but I would like an Armalite, or Bushmaster or DPMS 1 piece mount.

I am studying on this, having a picatinny rail I can mount a handle and front sight in the future and use it this way sometimes.

I like the looks of the 1 piece but decided to get my caller instead of a new scope mount. Search for olympic arms owners association, they have a lot of useful ar-15 information without the bashing you see on other websites

NIKON, dont waste your time with the bushnell, i do alot of prairie doggin and optics are very key. Good luck with the new AR! my bro has a Bushmaster VBAR .223 it is alright but i prefer my bolt HB thumbhole 22-250 but the blackguns are NICE!!

I have never cared for Bushnell scopes.I now own one on my 300 mag[bushnell Elite] and it has been a very good scope for me.It transmits light well,clarity is good and I can make some pretty good long range shots with it.I also have some Leupold scopes and believe me this new scope is not bad at all.

West of River, Missouri that is. I do have the Nikon you are referring to and love it. Do not have the Bushnell on anything so cannot compare that way for you. I will make one suggestion in that you consider the Nikon 6.5 x 20 instead. Will be going out west to shoot PD's next year again. If you are interested I could possibly (Ok, easily) be pursuaded to go a second time. Just don't have time this fall to make it out between being forced to fall fish and deer hunt. Good luck on your decision.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
