HM - That is a nice set up with the Vortex Scope and those very high mounts....you can take the front site off if you would like, but if you put lower rings on the AR you can see through the front sight,...it is too close to make any difference......but anyway you go, it still a good looking setup....

My last word on the 223 for deer, I would use a Accubond or Parition or Barnes or Swift or any deep penetrating, heavy bullet....you got to go with the accuracy because of your small targets - the yotes you may encounter.....aim small, shoot smaller!!!

My only reason for wanting to do this was to see if I could kill a deer with every rifle I own. I may just put that off and keep it a yote only gun
HM you really don't need to mount that scope that high , here's my M-4 , you will not see that front sight in your scope , I don't , here's a picture of mine .

why isn't the front sight in the way? it looks like it's the same height as the scope

The scope can not focus on anything under several feet so you don't see it .  It's got to do with the focal plan of the scope . I thought it would but after I put the scope there is not even a shadow post when you look through the scope .  ##$%#1118

I have that same front sight/gas block on one of my builds.  I use a lower scope mount (medium or high, can't remember, HM's looks like extra high).  Was surprised I could see through the scope reasonably well, but then I removed the little front sight post and it improved considerably more, even with the sight frame still there.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

LOL... There is a very scientific reason I used those high mounts....

Because I already had them   @--0--0120
