I need a recommendation on an upper for a Bushmaster DCM lower to be used primarily for prairie dog shooting. I want a flat top that will shoot inexpensive HP ammo. Economy is a strong consideration. Also, I need a recommendation on a resonalby priced scope good for prairie dog shooting. thanks in advance. Mark

The DPMS fluted uppers look really nice. I have a friend that bought a model1sales 24in SS FF heavy (.920) bbl 1/8twist and after 20 singles (cleaning after every shot- he fired a 5 shot group inside an 1/4in at 100yds! Not bad for a $400 upper! (I don't remember what ammo he was shooting)[last time I looked Les Baer was bragging about this for over $2000 Rock River is a good company and you will not be un-impressed by any of their match grade offerings (I had an RRA SS DCM rifle and it routinely shot 5 shot 4/10in groups at 100yds with the iron sights! I know I would have done better with a scope.)

I have the RRA varmint upper and can tell you it will seem like you have a "death ray" in your hands . Pasture poodles beware!!

I agree with the above recommendations for RRA. However, if you are interested in building one up, an OLY SUM barrel, flat top upper, bolt group, and free float tube will set you back about $470. Mine shot 3/4" groups @ 200 yds. with Black Hills 52 grains hollow point reloads.
