When it comes to reliably sending lead down range, the Bushmaster performed flawlessly. I find a thin barrel heats up fast, whips too much for precise shooting, and I’ll sacrifice a few ounces of weight to keep the muzzle down in fast fire any day.
I skimmed over that part so I missed it. Or firing one handed because half of one of your arms is blown open by shrapnel and you can’t move it. It’s good to know what possibly to avoid in an AR package from a through review.
