Hey there, I'm getting a new AR and it's down to the Rock River Arms Varmint A4 or the Bushmaster V Match Rifle. I'm getting the 24'' for 80-210 yard shots and was wondering if anyone had any tips or useful info on either gun or perhaps a picture, thanks a ton everyone.

So far I am pretty happy with my coyote rifle from RRA. It weighs in at 8.4 pounds, and I would not want any thing heavier than that unless it was shot strictly from a rest. The fit and finish is nice, and I have already shot a .5" group after fire lapping the barrel.HO

I hate making the decision... But I checked and their is a dealer who sells the RRA Varmint rifle with a fluted barrel.

Wow, I like that, where did you find him?

Is that a bead blasted barrel? I like it and have been debating getting either that upper or else the Bushmaster 24" Varminter.

Yes, it is bead blasted.

Also that is a Hogue overmolded forearm, Ergo Ambi grip, RRA scout rail, Burris Xtreme rings (low), and a Leo 4.5 x 14 x 50 Mk4.

Trigger breaks clean at 3.5 pounds.

I have the Rock River predator and like it real well it is on the heavy side but it does real well on the sand bags

You are basically comparing a Wilson target barrel to a chrome lined HBAR. The results at 200 yards are almost predictable.

Here's my new RRA LAR-15 Varmint A4, 24" bull barrel, 1:8 twist (so I can shoot 62-80gr bullets), Ergo grip, Versa-Pod, Barska 6-24x44mm mil-dot scope -





and here's my first target after getting the scope sighted in - mostly.





You'll have to forgive the target. I had to dig it out of the trash for this display. That's 5 rounds at 100 yds using my reloads - 60gr Hornady V-Max. The barrel was JUST broken in. Trigger was still stock - right outta the box, so to speak. A little gritty and creepy.

RRA and some other barrel "experts" of my acquaintance said forget the fluting. It looks cool, but for our purposes, it's a waste of time and money - and actually counterproductive.

I've worked on the trigger a little - smoothed it out considerably and reduced the trigger pull to about 3 1/2 to 4 lbs (my scales aren't real good). Almost no creep and a very clean break. This is since I shot the target above, so I hope to improve on it.

Not bad for a rookie (kinda) and about $1,000 total - just a smidgen over. I predict that a number of prairie dogs are gonna meet their maker as a result of the above firearm.
