Over the years in the firearms market the move hasn’t been towards innovation in certain aspects but, refinement of the AR-15 platform and its cartridges. Seeking to optimize the platform. With this refinement of the platform it has turned the AR-15 from a Whiskey with full body and nice finish to a Whiskey with a full body, subtle notes of flavor with a smooth finish. Hornady looks to take advantage of these refinements by wrapping them all up in their new 6mm ARC (Advance Rifle Cartridge) round.
Last Friday, CMC announced the introduction of barrels designed for the AR-15 platform. The new CMC barrels are currently available in 7.5”, 10.5”, and 16.25” in .223 Wylde. With a .223 Wylde barrel you can shoot civilian .223 Rem. or 5.56 NATO ammunition.
