I am looking for opinions and advice on a 22 nosler AR build. I think that this would make a fun rifle that would get close to 1k. I have a 24" AR in 204 Ruger with a ER17 on it that is one of the most fun rifles I own. With the heavy barrel on it my 8yr old is crazy efficient with it out to 600yrds. I'm hoping one in 22 nos will get him out a little further. Here's what I am thinking so far (almost identical to my 204), seekins upper/lower geissele trigger, harris bipod, PRS stock, JP silent capture and BCG, HD II 4.5-27, Surefire brake, and Proof Research 22" barrel. I will also put a socom 556 rc on it. My question is will this have much longer legs than the 204 and if so how much. Also will the recoil be too much for my 8yr old (he has shot .260 scalpel and ar-10 in 308 but both were too much for him to enjoy). Any opinions will be appreciated.
