Default My first build

Ecr billet upper/lower set from 556 tactical, Wilson SS 22" bull barrel, bcm bcg, rra match trigger. Has some mediocre fire field glass on it until i can get something better. It's a great feeling knowing I built it myself.
Shoots like a dream. 1.25" group @ 200yds. (75gr hornadys)

Thanks! The upper itself weighs roughly 7 lbs. I was using 75gr hornadys. I think I'm going to try the 80gr on my next range trip.

Watch the 80 grainers. They may be about a big as you can go and still fit in and function in the mag. And pressures can get high pretty fast as you try to keep the overall length. Or you can load them a little long and single load them.

Anything heavier than an 80 and your single loading anyway.

Nice looking rig you put together. And 3/4 MOA is nothing to sneeze at.
