Minor correction

I just finished reading the wonderful letter, “If the Communists invade America,” in the Feb. 7 edition and have to say the writer was almost 100 percent correct with his facts except for one.

The AR-15, so the writer claims, shoots a .223 full-jacketed bullet that doesn’t expand. Well although true, the AR-15 does shoot full jacket bullets, other ammo with hollow points and semi-jacket bullets are also readily available. I use the hollow points myself on coyotes and fox with great results.

One other note of interest is the AR-15 comes in the .308 cal. also, so I am told, and of course there are just as many bullet types and choices for it as well. Happy hunting.
