Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Started using my Whitely 6MM AR for 300 yard eggs shoots. Any AR is allowed in factory class. Competes well with the bolt guns with this set up. .25 MOA and holds the wind very well with 107 Sierras. Easy to load, easy on brass, and feeds flawlessly. The upper is on a Bushmaster lower with a Jewel Trigger at 2.5#.

PS. Got hooked on eggs shoots several years ago. Lots of fun, much harder then it looks, and good long range practice in the off season.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I don't have one currently. I walk around with an M4 all day, back home I sell them and can 'borrow' one when ever I like, so it's kind of hard to buy one. I am thinking of setting one up for three gun competition though.

I'm very interested in the 6mm AR - more so than the .204 - got any good links for it?

Not a tack driver like the 223's but it has a lot more punch too. And I'm trying to fix the awful DPMS trigger too... This is my carbine in 7.62x39 shooting 1970 Yugo ammunition.

Sorry I missed your question back in June. You can get a lot of info on the 6mmAr on 6mm AR Home Page. You can also find info on it on the 6mmBR site. Robert Whitely has designed the system and it delivers exactly to his claims, even better. My set up has a Nightforce bench rest 8x32 on it and consistently groups in a quarter MOA. Great caliber. I'm getting 2775 fps with 105 Bergers. A lot faster if you go down to 85 or 90gr. in bullet weight. I'm at 10 reloads with Lapua brass and still ok. Very easy to set up. Just run 6.5 Grendal brass through his custom Redding dye and your done. Performs very close to a 6BR...about 100fps less velocity.
