Re: Side charged AR15

It's a 20 inch barrel. The groups were very good when it was new,around 1/2 moa. I have about 700 rounds thru it and now it's starting to open up to 1 moa. I'm not sure of the culprit, but I think it's excessive carbon buildup in the break and crown. It's my truck gun and doesn't get pampered as much as it should. It's due a good cleanin' all over really. The .22 PDK is an awsome round. 60gr HP at 3490 fps, 50 Nos BT at 3760. I still get 3370 with 69 bthp match out of the 20 in barrel. You can ring the 800yd steel over-n-over-n-over, and for a calling gun it anchors coyotes much better than a .223.
