Re: AR15 loss of accuracy
See, I thought it was me at first so I shot some other guns, and had no problem. I think the rifle's becoming finicky about ammo, which was never the case before. It could be a bunch of things, like you said. I was thinking AR barrels were good for about 10k rounds, but maybe I was thinking wrong. I always took care of that rifle because it was expensive. I had it since the ban ended back in 2004. I'm not going to say I never rapid fired it, because I have, but I was really more impressed with its accuracy over ability to fire tons of ammo rapidly. That gets expensive quick, and I am a cheapskate. haha. So basically, when I'd take it to the range, I was shooting for accuracy. About the copper fouling remover, is that stuff safe for chrome lined barrels? I use Hoppe's 9 for cleaning as is, but I do have copper fouling stuff, but I've always been afraid to use it in a chrome lined barrel, fearing it'd no longer be chrome lined if I did.
I was thinking about getting a different AR or upper. I was thinking something in the M4 type configuration. What kind of accuracy is typical of either a Bushmaster or S&W?
