I've wanted an AR for a very long time, especially when I discovered Stag made high quality LEFT HANDED rifles. Unfortunately something always seemed to come up I needed to spend money on... then we had the silly gun run over the past year+ which drove prices on these as high as $3k each. Prices have fallen since then by quite a bit, in fact they currently are cheaper now than they were pre-rush.

I won it off gunbroker last month and after quite a wait, it finally arrived. Its a beauty too. Holding it off hand, its quite heavy but balances great. I'm used to hunting off hand with my Rugar #1V so I don't expect any issues with this. Primarily I'll be shooting off stix or bipod anyway.

Quality is great, 24" match grade barrel, match grade 2 stage trigger, Hogue Grips. It comes with a .5 MOA guarantee (using match grade ammo of course). I got a Nikon 4-12 BDC600 scope for it which mounted up just fine. Should be all ready to sight in soon as I can get out! Going to be mighty fun this summer.

55grn and 40grn for prairie dogs & ground squirrels. Might try 62grn for pronghorn antelope for kicks. Barrel has a 1/8" twist and would stabilize heavier.

27.0-27.2 grains of Varget and a 55Vmax is a winning combination you will have no problems with any bullets up to 75 grains.

I like 26.5 of win 748 with 52 grain bullets in that barrel too.

Glad to hear that... I have alot of Varget from pre-hysteria times. I had a partial can of A2230 I used to use in my .22-250, I used the rest of that up with some misc leftover bullets I had laying around. Loaded up around 80 simple rounds to break it in with.

Dallan, I love 77gr SMK with Varget (23.6 to 24.0). They are death dots.

Nice rifle. The one thing about. 223's is the variety of powders and bullets that are available. The same powders work well in. 308. My favourate powder to date is CFE223 and I have found the Hornady Varmint in 60 grn. Hp #2275 to be a solid performer. For economy I bought several hundred 55 grn Hornady SP's in bulk #2266. They are good for plinking at the range and closer shooting as they have a flat base.

Have fun.

if you get any Match 77 (sierra Nolser Berger etc. or a Hornady 75 up to 2600-2700 fps they will hold sub MOA at mag length.
