Its been a good weekend

Went to a local match, 22 shooters. took my 3 year old son along with me. He had a blast.
talking with everyone, and hang out out. It was hard to focus on shooting and keeping an eye on him. haha. He did get in a little trouble. he knocked over my rifle, in the middle of the match! oh man I wanted to say all kinds of bad words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It landed right on the windage turret and made some good deep marks. I thought for sure I was going to have a hard time after that. But it held zero!!

Here is how I did over all "shooter #1 on the list"









And today I shot my AR-15 for the first time since configuring it how it is now.

Did 3 shot groups of 9 different loads, 4 of them were - .5 moa and all of them were 1 moa or less.

here is the load I will be going with " shot at 105 yards" with 85gr bullets



here is a pic of the gun

Nifty Shooting!

What's the bbl length on your AR.

What velocity can you get that bullet going?
