    Max range for 10" AR?

    What is the maximum range an AR with a 10" barrel is usable to? Is an 11.5" barrel substancially more capable?

    What do you mean by useable, are we talking about accuracy or lethality?

    Lethality I guess, but I was going to leave that open. Accuracy I think is not really an issue.

    Check out some of TRIDENT82's threads on his shooting with his 10.5" out to 300 yards.

    ."It is my duty to leave nothing undone that I may lawfully do, to pull down this administration... They who, from indifference, or with their eyes open, persist in hugging the traitor to their bosom, deserve to be insulted... deserve to be slaves, with no other music to soothe them but the clank of the chains which they have put on themselves and given to their offspring."
    --John Randolph of Roanoke (In reference to the John Quincy Adams admistration of 1826)

    This would be the place for Trident82 and markm to chime in but here is a thread for 10.5"

    I tried searching for some of Trident's threads and his youtube page...they fell off the edge of the internetz

    I've shot 10.3" guns out to 600 meters, and achieved far more hits than misses, and stuffing a 77gr bullet through someone's torso at any velocity is not a way to ensure a long a prosperous life.

    The energetic frag range is greatly reduced from that of a 20" or 14.5" barrel when all other variables are equal, but exactly what that range is is highly dependant on bullet type and construction.

    As accurate as needed, as fast as possible, as many times as it takes.
