    SCAR 17s for Hunting!

    I am a new shooter- new to the forum, and new to hunting (first time coming up)-

    Anyway I was drawn for deer this year and so will be going out for my first time. I want to use my SCAR 17s because my friend says I will be hitting distances of 300yrds plus.

    I am in AZ and so we have a restriction of 5 rounds in the mag. I found an Excellent source for a mag block - and they make one just for us SCAR folks-

    If anyone has used their SCAR 17 for hunting please chime in- looking for any tips- pro's con's..

    I will also be using my 17 for deer this year. It will be in the woods though with short shots of no more than 50 yards or so. That's not because it can't be used for much longer shots, it's just what I have to hunt. I will be using a load from the Speer book using 165gr Grand slams. I love the maneuverability of the gun in tight spaces. I've always struggled with that using conventional rifles. Good luck this season.

    Is that an AZ restriction just for hunting with semi autos? (5 round mag?)

    Big-game only. Deer, elk, muleys, etc.
    It's here in Texas too, I think most states actually. I believe semi-auto only, could be wrong though.
    Hunters never die... they just go deeper into the woods.

    <Service Announcement > There is no magazine round limit in Arizona due to the passing of HB 2640. Also while were on the subject HB 2728, which allows the use ofsound suppressors when hunting also was passed. </End of Service Announcement>

    I got a ten round mag and made a 5 round limiter block from two wine corks glued together and milled with a dremel to fit.

    I've used mine for hogs before, took them down a lot faster than my buddy's AR-15!

    WoW really? I did know that- I went and read through the manual or rules last night- didnt say anything- Thanks for the tip- Yeah HB 2728- now another excellent reason to have a suppressor!
