I have a Bushy Disipator that I love.  I will be dressing it out a bit over the next few months as more of a battle/SHTF rifle. ( Light and or aimpoint).

I am also looking for a long range scoped AR and was looking at the V-Match Bushy.  I also saw a few Fultons that looked interesting.  The first question is 16 or 20"?  Is there a real difference out to 200 yards?  If there is a difference and I look at the Fultons is one barrel and twist any better than any other for more or less standard type ammo?  I saw a number of differnt twists offered but am not sure of the overall effect.  I still have some homework to do, but love to hear your opinions.  

BTW one of the reasons that I may look at a Fulton is that they are a local company in a state that frowns on such things.  I bought a Bushy both for quality and to thumb my nose at the lawyers in the next county to my south that want to put all gun companies out of business.  Someday I want one from all of the top notch makers ..... oh--- if I only had the money!!!!!

Thanks for you help,

OK, I am a bit slow.  I just read the FAQ and it looks like 1:9 is the way to go for my needs.  

As for everything else, I still want your input.

I would never own anything Fulton-Armory made..... and thats all I have to say about that.

Just make sure you are free floated, match barrell, with a good warranty.  I have a 16 match barrell ff,  other than my scope sux because the cross in my scope seems to cover up
allot of the target at 100yds I still can get a easy 1.5-2 inch group.  IMHO if you want jagged holes you have to go with top of the line optics.  You cannot shoot what you cannot see, and i want try and see the hole..  I have my eye out for a good deal on a (not going to mention brands) scope for my rifle.  Sadly enough the darn thing will almost cost as much as the rifle.  But I will use it for the rest of my life......

What ever rifle type you decide to get, get another Bushmaster.

My Fulton Predator is the finest upper I own, including three other Bushmasters.  All my lowers are Bushy, however!  

There are reasons I wouldn't look to Fulton for a General Purpose rifle, though, the lack of a chrome chamber and bore being foremost.
