I would love to find a revolving AR!!! That would be cool as hell!
I have both soft points, and some Gold Dot LE hollow points.
Just wondering if things kick off which should be the go-to.
Edited the title. Not going to judge. I always search by new posts, so sometimes miss the forum as well.
Set it so everyone can change their vote if they want though.
Just seems hard to believe that it actually works that way. On the handgun side we obsess over ammo.
LOL! I didn't even know what forum I was posting in but I guess my answer is the same. I use both in AR's but currently my go-to SD AR's are the TBBC in one and Black Hills 50 grain TSX in the other.
For my 6.8 SBR 115 OTMs or Fed. 110 Fusion.
If I have the 5.56 barrel (10.5") in it is Black Hills 75's (Reds).
Much prefer the 6.8 - I'm short of ammo so not a lot of practice.
Also, the change (5.56 to 6.8) requires a big adjustment on the TA33.
Unless things get really weird I'm going with 5.56 (lot's of ammo).
Soft points for hunting and preferable for defensive use but I use Federal XM193 and don't have any concerns.
Curse the "Latest Replies" box! It's gotten me into trouble more than once! Half the time I don't know what forum I'm replying in.
I`m good with FMJ. Anything running above 3,000FPS, it will do some serious work.
Why: Because penetration matters going through windshields and car doors.
Yepppp, its bitten me a few times...lol.
For a 5.56 rifle with a 14 inch barrel or longer my choice would be 5.56 55 gr FMJ. It's been proven to defeat level III armor and biceps.
For a 5.56 rifle with a barrel less than 14 inches, I'd do Speer GoldDot 62 gr. JSP. Tends to open up reliably in shorter barrels.
Having followed that advise , I bought a bunch of 55gr Winchester Ranger soft point ten 10 years ago.
Regardless, soft point does make sense to me for an 'all around' performance.
Speer Gold Dot LE Duty 223 Remington Ammo 62 Grain Soft Point
It works that way for military style 5.56 and German 7.62 FMJ only as far as I know. The bullets start to tumble in flesh and then break at the cannelure. The rear half will often shatter and fragments spread out and cut the heck out of things. More velocity means more damage but even short barreled rifles will do this at short range.
I have Hornady soft points meant for deer in the wife's hd ar. With two extra mags on the night stand of m193. Either will do I just keep soft points in it mainly for when I shoot a coyote with it as they are too light framed to get the ball round tumbling the soft point puts them down quicker. Quite frankly I'd hate to see what any of them would do to a human inside a house. I'd rather never find out.
But a revolving AR would still be cool as hell. Imagine a swing-out cylinder where the mag well is for something like .50 AE, I'd buy that...
Gatling Gun,,, more barrels=more fun...
There’s GDHP in rifle?
Not exactly an AR but how about a 40mm?
For close range defense ball is fine either M193 or M855
