yup yup! didnt want another .308 platform ($$ for ammo, even reloading aint cheap), dont like the AR platform, so went with the bolt gun in .223.

So far it's been good out to 700 on a calm day, hoping to push further than that but the round itself is pretty useless after 400 yards, so, at those distances its just for ringing the steel

What is the twist rate on the MVP? I have only held one at the shot show a few years back and don't remember the details.

1:9

Not so great for the heavy heavy bullets, but most of those need to be seated past magazine length anyway.

Gotta admit I am growing a little tired of the AR. I usually end up shooting at 300-400 to keep the challenge there. I have a pending sale on my current AR and have parts to build another lower for a lightweight 14.5" upper I like. I think once that is done, I may SBR the lower and switch out the 14.5 for an 11" upper once the stamp comes in. Keep that for short distance use and a bolt gun for my middle to long distance fun.

I like the idea of keeping an AR around for the home and an SBR works much better for that. Concussion blast is a bit of f*%^er tho

That was always kinda my thought process.

I wanted an AR to be little/light, which means it aint gonna be too good for longer distance, so I filled the niche with a bolt gun.

If i ever do another AR, it'll be a 14.5" middy as light as i can build it.

Anything under 16" has to have a SBR stamp unless you have a flash hider that brings it to 16". Most go 16.5" to be on the safe side.

It's the same basic process as a suppressor.
