Thank you

That's the only group I've fired with that particular powder charge/bullet combo. I still need to chrono it and see if it's repeatable. I've also got some Benchmark loaded with same bullet that I plan on trying.

There's some great long range groups here so far, Thanks for sharing folks.

    Oh hey, something I noticed......Seeing alot of Magpull stocks here so far (mine's got one too) might be something to that?

    Have you guys done trigger replacements too? Mine's got a Jewell in it.

    The top picture is 20 shots from an AR spacegun at 100 yards, open sights with a sling.

    The middle picture is 20 shots at 200 yards using an AR service rifle, open sights with a sling. The group measures @ 2" tall by 3" wide except the 9 which was the last shot.

    The bottom picture was shot with an AR service rifle at 300 yards. It is 10 shots into 3.25" fired from the prone position, open sights with a sling. Start from standing, go prone, fire 10 shots in 70 seconds including a magazine change.

    ARs can really shoot.

    DZelenka, that's good shooting for prone/sling. Congrats.

    I've never practiced that position much at all.
    Even with a one hole rifle, I probably couldn't shoot 1/2 that good from that position.

    It just takes practice. You learn how to build a solid position. Then it is just executing the fundamentals - make sure your natural point of aim is in the center of the target, focus on the front sight, break the trigger without disturbing your sight picture.

    All of those groups were shot with 77gr Sierras or Bergers, 24.1 gr RL 15 in a LC case.

    Here is how to do it:

    I do all my own trigger work. Mine has a resprung and polished RRA 2 stage match trigger. 1lb. 14 ounce first stage and an 8 ounce second stage.
