Re: Lets see your AR-15 groups

Here are two good groups I just got at the range today. This is the first time doing load development with the new rifle since the break-in. Very pleased so far. (Both are 3 shot groups at 100yards)

Re: Lets see your AR-15 groups

Nice job yote doctor!

Hopefully more good groups ahead. I particularly like the first one, nothing like a 1/4 minute gun to get the blood pumping

How do you like the extended/opened trigger guard? Does it hit your middle finger when you shoot?

Re: Lets see your AR-15 groups

Thanks. Have to see how they do on song dogs and prarie maggots. Still have the Sierra 69grs to try out. Should do well. V-maxes also shot under 1/2 but didnt get a pic.

Far as the trigger guard, I like it. Shot with some thick gloves on yesterday to try it out. (since it was only 47 here with 20 mph winds and rain). It does make you open your grip a little but getting use to it.

By the way, wanted to say nice shootin yourself! What kind of glass is sittin on yours?

When I was testing those loads it had a Leup Mk4 8-25X50 on it. Currently got that one on a different gun and an old VariX III 6.5-20 on the AR.

Re: Lets see your AR-15 groups

Nice groups Bruce. What barrel do you have on your AR ? I have a 22" kriegger on mine. 69gr SMK on top of 24.5 gr varget gets me quit a few sub 1" 5 shot groups at 200 yards. 22 gr of benchmark also worked good. The wind really screws with those little bullets. A unseen 2 mph gust of wind is enough to screw up a great group at 200 yards.

What twist is the Kreiger? If it is fast enough, you can use a heavier bullet to help with the wind. Some of us have been experimenting with loading the 82gr Berger (BC .444) to magazine length. You can get 2760 fps out of a 20" barrel so you would probably get a bit more out of your 22".
