  • When faced with opposition without plot armour and reasons to keep them alive, Stormtroopers are fucking brutal, as seen in The Empire Strikes Back - Hoth was somewhere between a decisive Imperial victory and an Imperial Curb Stomp

    Their shooting was also terrible on Endor. Maybe those were the flunky storm troopers that got put on the imperial guard due to nepotism or corruption?

    In the arctic standard bear protection is a five shot bolt action 30.06. You’d load them with three FMJs to scare the bear away and two hollow points in case that didn’t work.

    The truth about predators is they aren’t interested in dying for their meals. Prove to them that approaching will be deadly to them and they won’t approach. You don’t have to kill the entire pack, you just have to kill or wound one, or even just blast some rocks in their path.

    You’d really want something bigger for hogs and deer. Never known anyone who hunts deer with .223. You really want one of options in thirty caliber.

    While I’m sure someone hunts rabbits with a rifle you’d really use a shotgun or a really small rifle for them.

    .223 is a good coyote round though. There are better coyote rounds available and there are better coyote rifles in .223.


  • Ar-15s are potentially ok hunting rifles for large birds and small mammals although there are better options out there.

    The main argument I’ve heard for an AR besides the larp thing is that it’s easy to find compatible accessories because it’s a popular “open source” common platform.

    But honestly any hunter who is serious about hunting with .223 probably has a better gun that they hunt with.
