I bought a H & R 223 last night pick it up from a friend. I has a laminated stock, bull barrel, a 20 gauge slug barrel and reloading dies plus some reloaded ammo, 3 boxes of bullets and a scope. I didn't care for the scope so I picked up a used Nikon buck master 3x9.
Who cares if the reloads didn't shoot well any chance to shoot is good.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
