How to Setup AR-15 for hunting?

The Custom AR-15 is a better rifle in terms of hunting and sport shooting. Several Gun Builders have opted to personalize such guns for a better experience. They use a bunch of accessories to do the necessary process. Components such as lights, sights, slings, etc. can be changed according to our own. It is a perfect gun for those who are new to firearms.For a build, you’ll have to start with the upper receiver. Such receivers are present in both stripped and barreled front. But using a stripped version gives you an edge as it is suited for hunting. The barrel has to be either 16, 18, or 20 inches. Among all of these, the 20-inch barrel is the right choice. The handguards are in free-floating and non-free-floating versions. Employ a free-floating hand guard to achieve better results.

    I know this thread was started by a spammer, but what the hey, I just went to the range to set up 2 for hunting yesterday.

    20" Hbar, 223 form 1 22cal silencer, ATN X-Sight 5-20x digital NV scope

    16" HBAR 300BO form 1 30cal silencer, ATN X-Sight 5-20x digital NV scope.

    These are set up for hogs, I'll replace the NV with regular optics before deer season begins

    edited to add: The "regular" optics are 6-18x40 on the 223 and 3-9x40 on the 300BO

    I guess my Spider Sense is getting pretty good - I read the first sentence of his post and suspected he was "THAT GUY".  Only then did I look left and spot the BANNED avatar. :D

    I don't think he was "Bobert" I have a feeling he was just your "run of the mill" spammer trying to get traffic to his/her site

    It's the "Oh! I found a shinny, must click, must click" syndrome.

    The more times and places that your link shows up online, the higher it gets in google search results.

    Wouldnt the correct answer be... "put hunting bullets in it and go hunting"?
    If your AR is not already hunting accurate, then it unless you jammed a pipe into an upper and put it on a worn out poly lower, then it isnt the rifle.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    I’m with you on that.  Been hunting with an AR pattern rifle for the last few years.
