Yea I've heard the talking heads in the news and a few politicians lay claim that no one hunts with an AR, of course they have no clue as to what they are talking about.
Then again they have no clue about hunting or why anyone would want to hunt coyotes either.
I had another AR that was more accurate then the one I have now, it was a heavy barrel varmint rifle.
I shot Prairie Dogs with it at 400 plus yards.
I sold it then I realize how much I missed it.
I decided when I bought my other AR to go with a shorter barrel lighter weight rifle and it's not as accurate as my first AR or I'm not as accurate with it as I was with my first one.
I' have not handloaded for it yet but I'm thinking about starting, I've been shooting the Winchester 45 gr JHP factory loads in it.
I've shot a couple of JP ARs, and they were just as accurate as he claims them to be.
They are a little costly, however they are fine rifles.
I have several friends that competed in 3 gun matches that used them.
Anyway keep up the good work, like you I like coyote hunting and talking coyote hunting.
As a matter of fact, coyote hunting is at the top of my list when it comes to hunting.
