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
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.
2011, same 300 whisper. I really like this rifle
