    Got into a nice AR15 today.

    mms_picture-57.jpg

    -LMT Defender2000 lower receiver
    -Magpul acs stock
    Magpul grip
    -Daniel Defense quad rail
    -1/7 chrome 5.56 m4 profile barrel
    -Daniel Defense rear sight
    -grip pod
    -2 p-mags
    -2 c product mags with magpul followers!

    I like it.

    What grain bullets will be the best for shooting 50-100 yards/small game hunting?

    The twist on that barrel will shoot just about everything well. If you want to do some small game, I like the Varmint Nightmare bullets from Midsouth. If you don't load your own, you could do a lot worse than Hornady V-Max. The only thing you might have trouble with is the super light stuff. Like 40gr and under. The bullets with really thin jackets could tear themselves apart coming out of the barrel.

    55gr on up. The 80 and 90gr bullets may not fit in a mag so unless you want a single shot I'd go with 55 or the 60gr bullets.

    Not enough and 2 of them are C-Products mags. So you really only have 2 mags.

    LOL Some work fine, others do not. Shoot yours to see how they work. I had 7 and 3 of them were junk. The other 4 have held up just fine through some hard use.

    It may be a little much, but I really like the black hills 75gr. I get the remanufactured stuff to save a little money and have not had a problem.

    I was just lying down trying it out...its great. Hard to pivot but I don't really shoot moving things so it will be fine.
