    What are the pros and cons of an HBAR ar-15?

    Depends on two things; round count, and how far do you need to hump it?

    It'll be a range gun and maybe 200-300 rounds a month.

    Some of the pros are:

    better stabilization with the heavier barrel
    Less muzzle flip
    Less felt recoil
    Faster followup shots
    Takes longer for the barrel to really heat up, but when it does, it also takes longer for it to cool down

    Cons,
    more weight if you have to carry it anywhere

    It's also going to feel muzzle-heavy since most of the weight of the gun will be forward of the receiver. Shooting offhand will give your weak hand a workout.
