I got a 5 shot .699 group with rounds 11-15 of factory hornady tap. Groups are hanging around 1 inch with federal match loads.... and im shooting my first batch of handloads saturday.
Anyone else have one yet? Though long overdue, Ruger has finally fixed the problem.... i think.
Anyone have muzzle velocities with 69 or 75 gr. bullets with the 16" barrel?
Let me know.
I have a Target model Mini 14 with a Konus 4.5 - 16 x 40mm scope. All I have been able to do is site it in at indoor range at 25 yards. I recently joined a range with a 400 yard range. I will let you know how it does. From what I seen on line the Target model was shooting good groups at 300 yards with no problem.
