So being able to reach out to 600 yds or more with my bolt action, I can get an earlier start on plinking zombies with them.
My dual backups are a 45ACP and a 12 gauge pump btw, for the peanut gallery.
So, AR's are up-to 300 yard guns?

It isn't about disagreeing -- but what you want something to be doesn't make it so, and when you prove vast ignorance of a subject and insist on demonstrating it don't be shocked and awed when you get called out on it.
Now, let's talk Mosin-Nagant, the REAL best all purpose gun ever made (until the next $79 milsurp import). LOL
