I am looking at a Bushmaster with A3 sights. Most competition shooting will be at 100 yards, although my range has a 300 yard target not used in club shoots.

In stock he has a 20" barrel model. He says at 100 yards, there will not be a great difference
in accuracy. He said at longer ranges 300 to 600 yards, is where the difference is noticable.
Price is relitively same for different lenghts. I do not plan on installing optical sights now, but in 12 months, who knows.

If I need to order my Bushy, what protective finish would you suggest and why?

Opinions please.
Thanks.

Whats wrong with the factory finish? and if you are even remotely thinking of shooting 300+ yards....get the 24", the added weight at the muzzle really helps....in more ways than not. You can also pick up a stripped upper and do it either way....20 to 24....or 24 to 20. LTS
