    Good deal on ammo

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but Dicks Sporting Goods has all of their 223 and 556 ammo buy one get one 50% off ! Just picked up 360 rounds (4 boxes 90 rounds each) of American Eagle 55gr 556 in stripper clips for $128.00. In my neck of the woods thats a pretty good deal. If this is the wrong place to post this, sorry, I'm new to this GREAT forum.

    Thanks for the good info Mr B. I will definitely look into changing that it. Looks to be a pretty inexpensive upgrade.

    How would I be able to tell if mine is over gassed ? In the 2 trips to the range I've had no feed or ejection issues. The recoil is minimal, and the spent rounds seem to be ejecting at the correct angle. I have fed it both 223 and 556, but both in the 55 grain. I have not tried the hotter loads yet. Thanks for the info

    My rifle is a DPMS Sporticle. I've seen on several sites folks saying these are not very good rifles...maybe I lucked up and got a good one, but it seems very well put together. 2 times to the range and around 300 rounds and I am impressed. - fed it both .223 and .556 and not a single hiccup. Took me a few rounds to site in the red dot, then after I bought the back up sights I moved the red dot sight back a little and went back to lock in the back up sights and red dot. I don't have a lot in this gun...$499.00 for the rifle. 3 extra magpul mags, a nice inexpensive gun bag, cheap red dot and aluminum back up sights. All in all I'm at about $675.00. I'm sure this wont be my last AR....but I can definitely feel that I have caught the fever.
