Well boys (and girls) I busted down and got my FIRST Bushmaster AR. It is a XM15 E2S A3 with a 30 round mag. Paid $890. I got it on Friday was able to get it zero'd in and play around some as well. The photo is my place in Utah.
I NEVER thought one of these could be so much fun.

Two quick questions:
1.) Need a good soft case. Small, rugged, good $$
2.) Best current $$ for bulk online ammo. I got some opinions (bad) about Wolff.

I won't bother you anymore for now...But I'll be Back....

Welcome to the club!

There is nothing wrong with Wolf, I run it in all my guns, but for good deals on ammo, Wolf or otherwise, try Here or Here.

Good luck and enjoy!!!

1: Eagles are great, but kinda pricey....
2: check out Sportsmansguide.com (cheapest shipping, but not the best bulk prices on everything....)

Congrats on the new rifle man. You'll have a lot of fun with it.

As for bulk ammo, take a look at this stuff. www.wideners.com/itemdetail.cfm?item_id=6778&dir=18|606|607

and this.

And as for the soft case. I really like my Bulldog case. Bought mine at the local gun shop for like $55-60 though :(

Welcome, Nevada!!

Great choice on the Bushmaster, and they are a blast aren't they?

I have a couple of Galati soft cases that I really like. You can see them at this link -----> Galati Rifle Cases

I know Eagle makes good ones as well.

Your carbine will fit perfectly in a 37" case.

I really like that rifle range you have there!!

Congrads on new Bushy, Bought mine about 3 months ago and love it also bought Galati 37" square case and it seems well constructed and with security straps it holds my Bushy tight, so guess I'd give Galati thumbs up.

I just bought a MOLLE rifle case from CTD, for $60 I like it better than my Eagle case for half the price. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MOLLE202-41692-859.html

Welcome, beware the BRD(Black Rifle Disease) is a costly one.

Good to have you aboard.

I have a one year old Bushmaster 14.5" Izzy that has shot about 1,500 plus rounds without a single failure of any kind. Most of my ammo is 5.56, though. They are great guns.

Thanks for the warm welcome and all the information on cases and ammunition. I REALLY know what you mean about BRD now....and it looks like there is no cure...hrown
