Default Building a featureless semi-long distance AR15 - help!!

I have owned a S&W M&P-15 sport for about 7 months. Great gun for the money, never had a problem with it. My brother was looking to get an AR so I decided to sell him my sport and build my own featureless semi-long distance AR rifle. Usually between the 100-300 yard range - nothing to crazy.

Any advice for a build like this?
I was thinking of the RRA 20" Varmint or maybe a 20" from PSA or something I can find in the classifieds forum. This will be my first build.

What is your intended target? Paper, steel, silhouettes, yotes, prairie dogs or all the above?

Iron sight or optics?

You don't need to get crazy for 300-500 yards. I know you said your intended range was 300 but the Marines use standard M16A2/4 out to 500.

A 20" build would fit the bill nicely and perform its intended task.

The attached pix is my mid-length featureless. She is good to 300 all day long. 16" Daniel Defense mid-length barrel, YHM rear sight and front gas block, YHM Comp, JD upper and lower, Stag LPK, MI G2 drop in hand guards and A2 stock with MM grip.

Any standard AR will do very well at 300. Most shooters will never out shoot their AR.

Quality range time is more important then high-end parts. The majority of shooters need quality parts and practice.

thanks for the help. I plan on shooting paper from the 100-300 yard area. and steel from there back. Eventually I plan on building 2 ARs - this one for long range, and another tactical red dot version.

Nice rifle!!

You should be able to hit that with irons on a carbine..

But for the look and added accuracy.. Buy a 18" SS match barreled upper with a mid range scope. Look up SPR.. Special purpose rifle. That's pretty much what your looking at but featureless

Curious what people here usually mean by "hit that". Do you mean you should be able to nail, for instance, a 1" circle at 300 yards with only iron sights, with a half-way decent 16" barrel AR15, or simply that you should be able to "hit the target", IE, put a hole somewhere in a human-size target (or perhaps at least a hole somewhere within a 1 foot circle on a standard-size letter-size target), at that distance?
