Other Advantages of a .22 LR Conversion
A .22 LR conversion has advantages beyond cost savings. The lack of distracting recoil and noise from the smaller cartridge makes it a great way to break in new shooters letting them to focus on trigger control. For more advanced shooters it assists them with learning and perfecting double taps, hammer pairs and zipper drills. The .22 LR can also be used in competition AR-15’s for practice of up to 50 yards without sacrificing accuracy.
Adjusting for Differences between the .223 and 22 LRs
Typically, the 36 grain copper jacket .22 LR will strike the target with a two inch group at 50 yards and a few inches lower than a .223 round. A quick adjustment to the AR-15’s standard sight will quickly compensate for the difference.
