Lets see your AR-15 groups

I am sure somebody can beat this one.

Here's the best 200 yd group I've fired to date with my custom upper AR in 223. Used Sierra 60 grn HP, 25 grns of Varget, CCI BR-4 primer and Black Hills once fired cases. Bullets seated to 2.270 OAL (maximum for magazine) and about .005 off the rifleing.

There's surely a flier, and I don't know if it was the 1st shot, 5th shot, or one in between because I shot all 5 and never saw the flier till I walked down to the target. Still testing, Varget is all I've tried so far.

Let's see some more

It's really great that we can post photo's directly now. Thanks Len!

    I shot a clip at this target off the hood of the truck useing bipods @ 100 yards, I should have read the wind better!
    Not great but a good representation of what we can get done=Prairie dogs to 300 and coyotes a tad farther.....If I get them before they hit the afterburners

    Len, if I could shoot even 1/2 that good off the sticks, there wouldn't be a safe coyote LOL!

    MachV, Hey at least they're consistant. These little 223's sure have some issues when the wind gets to blowing. That's still about 3/4 moa avg though isn't it?

    Nitrous, nice shooting! I didn't know they even made AR type rifles for such big calibers. How do you like that Magpul stock? I absolutely love mine.

    Keep em coming guys, I keep hearing how accurate everyone's AR's are, but don't seem to see many pictures. Here's your chance, let's post em up
