AR-15 for varmint hunting???
In November 2014 I purchased an AR-15 DPMS Oracle, their introductory weapon to the AR format. I live in a condo, so knew in advance that I would not be using it for home defense.
Since the AR uses a FMJ bullet, I thought it would be good to hunt varmint/coyotes. But, today I was at a local gun store and the assistant manager told me that platform would leave little of any critter I shot.
Is that true with a FMJ? In college I would hunt with a 6MM and/or .270 and am familiar with the remains of an expanding bullet, so I thought the AR was would be good for small game.
Have I deceived myself and wasted money?
