Bushmaster CAR15 .223 – The Perfect Survival Rifle
You can ask ten different people what the best survival rifle is and you will get ten different answers. Well, I am going to give you my answer. The Bushmaster CAR15 .223, in my opinion, is a high survival rifle for so many reasons.
First, let’s start with the basics of the rifle. This is an AR platform that works very well. It has a carbon 15 upper & lower, 16″ lightweight barrel, telescoping stock, Bushnell red dot sight, 30 round magazine & it weighs in around 5 pounds. The Bushmaster rifle is legal in most states but unfortunately is illegal in a few countries because of specific features (you know what states you are, wake up & give your citizens their rights!.) We understand we might hear a lot of negative feedback & disagreement because we are saying an AR with a .223 round is a high survival rifle. Do we care? Actually no we don’t. We think after are testing and the facts we are laying out, we might change some minds. We are confident this rifle would perform in any situation & the reasons below are why.
So why do I think this is such a great survival rifle? There are so many different reasons why it is, & I will do my best to lay out my argument here. One of the main goals is because it is so versatile. If you require it to hunt for food, it will do the job very well. It will easily take out small game and with a well-placed shot will have enough power to take out the big game as well (before you say it won’t let me say, YES it really will.) Remember food is an important part of any survival situation, & this rifle will provide you the accuracy and power to put some food on your desk.
The Bushmaster Car15 is also pretty lightweight. At only around 5 pounds it is not going to slow you down at all. You can easily carry it over your arm with a sling or just bring it in your hands for long distances, and it will not be much of a burden. Remember in a survival condition it is necessary to conserve your energy, having this lightweight rifle will assist you do that.
One of the most important reasons why it is such a great survival rifle is because of the ammo it uses and how it handles ammo. The .223 round could be found at pretty decent prices online and even at some local gun shops. 223 ammo can also be purchased in large bulk quantities, so you are always prepared. Some people are wary of buying bulk ammo because they think it will cause problems with their firearms. This could be true with some firearms, but it is not the case with the Bushmaster Car15. This rifle eats up anything you put in it. We have shot thousands of rounds of the dirtiest & cheapest Russian ammo, and this thing just keeps on shooting. This is what you need a survival rifle. You want a rifle that is not going to bankrupt you when it arrives at buying ammo, and you want a gun that is going to fire when you want it to. This is what the Bushmaster does; it allows you to stock up on ammo for cheap without having to worry if the gun is going to fire.
So we have gone over how the rifle is good for hunting in a survival situation & how it will eat up any ammo you feed it. So how would it manage itself in a fire fight? Are you going to feel confident that you will get out on top with this rifle? The possibilities of you walking away instead of the bad guy are very good with this rifle. With 30 round magazines and the option to buy aftermarket magazines that will hold even more rounds, this rifle can put a lot of rounds down range very quickly. When we took the Bushmaster to the range recently, we did any quick-fire drills where we left multi magazines very rapidly. We wanted to see how the rifle worked in a rapid-fire situation, so we emptied six 30 round magazines within about two minutes time. Once over the rifle performed beautifully. 180 rounds in about two minutes & this thing wanted to keep going. There is a reason why so many militaries around the world use this kind of weapon. It excels on the field of battle & will excel in any survival situation you encounter.
Have we convinced you yet on why this Bushmaster CAR15 is such a good survival rifle? Do you want an excellent priced rifle (under $700 on certain sites) that will do everything you need in a survival rifle? If you do than to pick up a Bushmaster CAR 15, you really will NOT be disappointed. We recommend this rifle to anyone that wants a versatile survival rifle that will perform well in any situation and will not break the bank on the way
