    That makes way too much common sense for a Ma**h*** Flatlander like me to understand.[thinking]

    Some states also have hunting regulations of no more mag capacity than 5 and NO FMJ. That alone can make an AR in .223 a bit tricky to hunt with

    Actually, an AR with a 5 round magazine and Barnes 75 grain TSX loads is a great rifle where .223 is legal for hunting.

    It is settled that as long as none of the magazines ON YOU while you hunt exceed the maximum capacity, you are legal regardless of the fact that your rifle could accept larger ones. Just don't have them on you or in your vehicle.

    On the topic of AR's, does anybody have a S&W M&P 15? If so, how do you like it?
