The AR-15 is a lightweight, semi-automatic rifle with a magazine capacity of 30 rounds. The AR stands for “ArmaLite Rifle,” which was the company that first produced it in 1959. There are many variations on this theme available, but most will be chambered in 5.56 NATO (5.56x45mm) or .223 Remington and use standard NATO cartridges like 20-round magazines. In general, the bigger the caliber, the less shots you can take before reloading; however if you live in an area where ammunition might be hard to come by it may not matter as much what caliber your rifle is as long as there’s plenty of ammo around when needed!
