I know this is somewhat of a loaded question
Whats the average effective range of an AR (16')
- I know there are lots of variables that effect this (as with any gun)
But im just curious what the average shooter can do with his/her's AR -
Depends on how you define "effective". There have been a couple of threads that have debated this. You can search for them.
Accuracy depends on a variety of factors. There are threads on this topic too.
They fragment out to around 125-150yds, IIRC.
They are accurate to some pretty decent ranges past that, though.
I have shot a home water cooler (about 18"x36") with a 50% hit rate on a windy day with irons, Wolf ammo, and a heavy stock trigger before.
I doubt it would have done much damage if it had been a person, but they certainly would have been hit.
Thanks for the info guys
anything past 100 yrds im not to worried about -
Right now with my sks my effective range is about 100 with wolf ammo (by effective i mean kill zone and still powerful)
any more input would be great
