Please allow picts of people here who have taken deer with their ARs. The subject comes up every year and it is the same questions over again. I think a sticky would make things a lot easier.

Something like this...

2002-64gr My first AR15, factory Armalite M15A2 firing a 64gr powerpoint.



2004-64gr power point from A2 type rifle.

2005-55gr gameking SP1 type rifle. Yes, I know it is tiny. I was sleeping in my stand and just woke up to see three deer trotting out right in front of me. I didn't have a lot of time to think about how big the deer were before I shot.


2006-Ok, not killed with an AR but it should have been. Walking through a swamp and this feller jumped up in front of me. I didn't have time to get my rifle unslung so I just qiuck drew my pistol and capped him in the ass as he was running away.
Oh, 240gr XTP out of a Ruger Redhawk.


Updated! Just wanted to add a few more pictures.


2007, can't remember much about it but it was a banner year for us and we had dead deer hanging up from trees all over the FRONT yard.
Yeah, we are a bunch of rednecks...


2008, I think that is my .300 whisper when I first put it together.


2009, definitely the .300 in it's current configuration.

2010, skunked.


2011, same 300 whisper. I really like this rifle

Great suggestion. This is AR15.com isn't it? Great pictures of some dandy kills Gary.

How about a slight modification, and just say "Deer taken with an AR-15 Rifle"? Many states don't allow calibers as small as .223 for deer hunting, so a lot of AR-15 kills would be excluded by limiting it to .223. Many use AR-15's in .458 SOCOM, 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, .50 Beowulf, etc.

Just let me know.
I can't call up M4Madness to go hunting with me and be sitting up in my stand with my Single Shot NEF Ultra-Slug hunter when he is sitting over there with a loaded to the gills, magazine fed, gas-operated, .458 SOCOM killing machine. -- Buckfever34

unfortunately I don't have any pics of the deer and antelope I've taken with an AR. How about a Turkey?



And this from a guy named "karma"
Exactly. Karma's a bitch.

Just started hunting latter part of last year (different cameras used):

Jul 07 - Very Young Buck taken with 18" Ko-Tonics Bbl 6.8 SPC AR Rifle wearing a Trijicon Accupoint TR21R with LT 12.0 FF Rail; 215 yard shot in chest & face; Factory SSA 110 gr. Pro-Hunters. Entrance & Exit wounds to chest are similar in size.


Sept 07 - Hog taken with 20" Colt SP1 using Iron sights; one 60 yard shot behind left shoulder (lunged); Wolf 62 gr. HP. Buck taken with 22" Remy 750 Synthetic wearing a BSA Deer Hunter Scope; one 75 yard shot above left shoulder (lunged) Handloaded .308 WIN (150 gr. Pro-Hunter/43 gr. Varget). Hog: Entrance wound is deceiving (about .22 size). Under skin is about quarter size with trauma on meat around wound. Lung completely exploded. Bullet completely fragmented (no exit). Buck: Entrance wound is about .30 cal size. Exit wound is about size of a nickel. No meat damage whatsoever.

Same Buck:


Oct 07 - Buck. First shot hit right side rupturing kidney (too far back - trigger pull was off) using Remy 750 and same .308 WIN handload. Follow-up kill-shot seconds later with brother using same 6.8 SPC AR rifle shot on right side of face; Handloaded 6.8 SPC (110 gr. V-Max/29 gr. H322); 198 yards. Buck: Entrance wound is about .30 cal size. Exit wound is about size of nickel. No meat damage whatsoever. No exit wound from 110 gr. V-Max (didn't bother trying to recover bullet).

This year kill so far. Shot with a varminter type AR15, 20" barrel, 1/8 twist firing a 64gr powerpoint at the incredible range of 25 yards it ran about 30yds and fell over dead. Sire it ain't nuttin spectacular but the deer jerky it will make will taste great.

BTW, 100lbs dressed out.
