Sniper,

I like that, that's funny. I can do 10-15" groups with iron sights at 500 meters. Good enough to hit a torso. But that's with a M16A2. I got to use that line

Sniper,

Wish I had old reliable, but it was my rifle in the service. That was my only dance with the AR type platform unit now.

Well I to guess I will be shooting a bit further then I thought. I did not think my 1:7 DD barrel would reach that far.

my bcm is a 1:7 middy 16" it is moa out to 300yds (max distance at the range i shoot at) with 69grn sierra matchkings. with 55 grain ball its 12" group at 300yds but 55grn doesnt do all that great in a 1:7 at 100yds 55 is about 1.5 inches 3inches at 200 and 12 at 300. more than accurate enough to sit any goblin on his butt. 1:7 is designed to shoot 62grain to 79 grain bullets. it shoots 55 well enough for practical short range use.
