I am slimming down my collection and taking just what I need for the trip North as soon as school is done. I expected to be up there already, but schooling changed things a little.
Anyhow, I have learned that my AR15 in .223 is only good out to 300 yards in windy weather and that is not very consistent. I do a lot of coyote and bobcat hunting down here in Washington. On the west side the .223 is fine, on the east side where the wind howls and the shots can be out to 600 yards, it is almost worthless.
I have decided to sell a few of my rifles that I do not need and buy an Olympic Arms upper. I am thinking of going with either the .243 wssm or the 25 wssm. This gun will be for caribou, deer, wolves and yotes at extreme ranges. I will keep my .223 upper for closer or lighter duties.
Your opinions please.
