I want an SBR but I'm having trouble deciding what round I want. Right now I'm leaning towards a 9mm set up but the cost is more than building my own in .223. So, here's my question, which one would be more effective round for an SBR for 100 yards or less? This will be used mainly to keep unwanted night time visitors away, the occasional wild pig I can't pass up and of course lots of plinking.
Thanks, Monte.

Go ahead and register the lower now. flip a coin for caliber.

Whiel you're waiting on the form 1 to come back, you can get an upper in the other caliber.

Once form one comes back sent ATF a letter adivsing that you will be using both calibers.

then, eventually down the line, when to gets to be a pain in the butt to keep switching, you can form 1 another lower, and have 2 dedicated setups.

Set it up for 5.56 and then later get a 9mm upper and magblock etc. Have both!!!!

I was under the impression that the ATF was no longer allowing a receiver to be registered with more than one caliber?

Initially, No. the Form 1 can only state one caliber. However, once the item is registered, you can notify the ATF in writing that you will be using "X" calibers, "X" barrel lengths, etc.....

5.56mm is much more effective. Unless you have a need for total suppression or WWB ammo.....

Is the .223 sbr any harder on brass than any other AR15? I ask this because I only shoot handloads and don't want torn up brass.
