There were several pushes in Fallujah. But after the second push they maintained a presence. My brother was there for the push in 04, Then came back in 06. I don't know if he was a part of the third push that happened at the end of 06.

But all my information is second hand.

For tight groups, you'd ideally be talking about a $2K AR. Something along the lines of a $400 lower (match trigger), $1000 upper (maybe an 18" 1:8 stainless match barrel), and then $600 for optics...plus heavier match ammo and a fair amount of practice. At that price (and range) an AR-10 or M1A starts to look like the better option.

If you're just talking about tapping a 12-18" gong for fun at that range, a typical carbine/midlength could suffice if wind isn't a huge factor.

I would sure struggle to group at that range, but my longer range skill set is pretty limited. Plinking at a decent sized gong is something different entirely, however.

I spent more money on ammo this year then on my builds.

Last year too even though I bought a $2000 ar.
