A military knockoff.


A .223 hunting rifle, 5 rounds, use to hunt small game.

1. So ban magazines

more than ten rounds. Functionally if that is done these guns are the same.

2. What a failure of a comment, you should get your eyes tested.

The hunting rifle is bolt action, not semi auto.

The .303 SMLE had the fastest rate of fire for a bolt action weapon and that was barely 20 - 30 rounds per minute for a fully trained infantrymen using 5 round stripper clips for the 10 round magazine.

30 rounds from the Bushmaster, assuming no bump-fire mechanism, could be done in 10 - 15 seconds by an untrained lunatic.
