    It will be reliable with "Steel Cased" ammunition Thomas, no problem. No rifle truly will fire both exactly the same as steel is less pliable than brass an doe not seal the chamber the same when firing. Steel tends to have more blow by and need more frequent cleaning than brass cased ammunition.

    Michael you don't want to replace the "Hand Guard" with a quad rail, you will need to purchase a Bipod with "Bayonet lug" attachment such as : https://www.factoryauthorizedoutlet.com/ncstar-ababnl-bayonet-lug-quick-release-notched-legs-bipod-for-ar-15?google=1&CAWELAID=230005750000124750&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=20078458691&CATCI=pla-41477300408&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzJm9wYHH2gIVBITICh3cxgCfEAQYASABEgIn_vD_BwE

    Yes, but you will need to add a low profile gas block. The front sight will not affect function of a red dot sight you will not even notice that the front sight is still there with a red dot installed and turned on

    Buds prices bounce up and down Buds pricing policy "From Buds “Our website updates every 20 minutes, 24/7, with our current inventory and replacement cost. We do not price our guns manually based on our cost in each, rather we use a live download from manufacturers and distributors to set our price based on our current replacement cost. As our cost changes, the corresponding website price of each make/model will change up/down accordingly. Although our profit margin remains unchanged, our advertised prices will change frequently, sometimes several times per day.”

    Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 Rifle Scope seems pretty nice, just got one for a .450 bushmaster. custom dial lets you zero in and just turn the dial to a known distance and is calibrated for specific ammo. i believe they also give you another set of dials for free for one other caliber if you want.

    Hi Kevin, This is only a weekly sale. I wouldn't hesitate as the price can rise at any time. Buds uses an automatic inventory price update engine that runs every 20mins. Prices are tied directly to stock levels and will change as stock numbers change. As inventory numbers go down, prices go up and vice-versa. Usually when popular items get low in stock Please click the green box stating it as the best answer. We are rated on our answers and are just volunteers, not Buds employees. You can choose more then one Thank you!

    Yes John, the AR556 will work just as well as any other AR. I would equip it with a decent 3-9x40 or higher magnification optic for close up and distance work. Of course ammunition to match your quarry will be key. A favorite predator load I use that is laser accurate and puts em down fast is https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/85839/Fiocchi+Rifle+Ammo+Extremma+223+Rem%2F5.56+NATO+V-Max+50GR+200

    While the answer about inventory is partially correct, it is the old supply and demand forces at work. In essence if a particular product becomes popular and demand for it goes up, the supply (read inventory will drop). Consequently, it will take a while for manufacturers to catch up with increased orders from retailers. At this point, two very capitalistic things happen. The manufacturer generally will increase wholesale prices to the retailer or temporarily limit quantities that can be purchased (there’s a lot more underlying things going on but outside the scope of this answer). The retailer, sensing a strong demand, and declining inventory on a popular item with prospects of quick replenishment not happening soon enough, will raise prices to offset the lack of product to sell and otherwise result in less profit. Another factor to keep in mind, that by the time a manufacturer can catch up with the surge in demand, that demand may wane and the manufacturer and possibly the retailer is stuck with inventory that they cannot sell at reasonable profit margins. This is an oversimplified explanation, but it is in essence how market forces work. This does not take into account overstock, discontinued or loss leader sale items that also put certain types of pressure on the market place.
