Do you think a .223 would be workable?

Yes it can work, but the tool is cheap $7-15 depending where you get it. Also w/the tool you won't nuck/scratch up the finish!

So im going to hijack my own thread right now with this question- i think i may be confused about how to sight my AR in. I am trying to sight in at 25yrds and my first group started low on the paper so i moved my front sight up to bring my next group up. Is that wrong?

As long as I am understanding you correctly, then you are wrong. You actually wanted to move your front sight down, as to match it to the lower spot where the bullets are actually hitting. Your sight should be engraved with the word "up", followed by an arrow pointing to the left. Indicating that to move your point of impact up, you should then turn your sight clockwise, which actually moves the sight downward, but the point of impact upward.

Congrats. Only had mine for less than a year, and like someone else already said, THEY ARE ADDICTIVE! As far as suggestions, my #1 suggestion is to go with good quality glass if you plan on using something besides irons. I screwed up when I first bought mine and bought a cheapo scope that ended up in the junk box $150 later. Cheap optics take away the trust in an AR-15 IMO. Plenty of AR info out there on the web, so when you see MANY people talking just a few brands, it's pretty saft to say trust 'em.

Ohh yeah... And get some spare mags. loading 30 rounds every minute gets kind of tiring on the fingers. With some extra P-mags you can have those babies loaded up the night before you hit the range and save time on loading, so more time for shooting.

I always zero my AR .223/5.56 in at 50yds, which makes it close at 200yds from my experience.
