I want to purchase one but I would like to get the more accurate one.
I would think that the AR15 is becuase there are so many aftermarket
barrels for it but thats where the human opinion comes into play.
Snicker, Squirrel or Woochuck?
Seriously, for target practice a lot will depend on the range, your preferred shooting stance, available ammunition and the optics. If pure accuracy
on paper targets is your desire, iron sights are not worth the time if you are not shooting at moving targets. The AR-15's superior muzzle diffuser
and gas system along with slightly longer barrel will give a more consistent performance if you don't modify it.
If you want a longgun for hunting or anything seriously sporting, you need a much larger caliber and practice with the recoil and weight which a human
killer popgun cannot provide.
For so-called 'home defense' there are much better options in terms of safe storage and ease of employment which are also less likely to go through
a wall into the house next door or several blocks down the street. Ammunition costs to maintain proficiency can also not be ignored.
