AR-15 Podcast welcomes Anthony Hardy, as he tries his hand in the search for a co-host for the show. Anthony brings the everyman perspective to the show and elaborates on what he’s learned from Episode 1 to now.
One of the greatest historical strengths of the AR also encompasses a major obstacle for first time, and intermediate builders–the cost of the modular nature. The field of available rifles borders on overwhelming. For those enthusiasts building on a budget, Reed and Anthony discuss a myriad of the better entry-level rifles at length. How to spot quality, brand recognition, mil spec builds and accessories are just some of the items discussed for the first time buyer willing to do some homework. Specifically, Reed gives his top four categories of features and functions when he shops a new rifle model or build.
The discussion takes on some related fields in barrel length and twist. The hosts explore the possibilities of lighter loads versus traditional barrel twist, the emergence of the intermediate twists, and possible effects of lighter loads. Anthony poses interesting questions about potential loss of ballistic capabilities in this arena and Reed brings his years of experience to hazard a guess.
Anthony shares his tip of the week as a modified rifle and pistol trigger drill for accuracy and staying on target. Reed provides the weekly Otis Ripcord giveaway and the guys go through some listener feedback. Listen or watch the complete episode at www.ar15podcast.com/060/.
