The first thing that came to mind, buffer weights.

Thanks Quentin! I think that's exactly what it is. I took it all back apart and couldnt fine anything. Went and got a couple different types/grains of ammo. It's a 1:7 twist so I am gonna try the whole range. Talks to my local gun shop and the owner there has the same upper and shoots 55gr all the time without a problem.

looking at different optics now. Any suggestions? Mainly be used for target shooting at the range, anywhere from 20 yards to 200+. I have a gift certificate to amazon so i was looking at these. Any good?

Don't buy something cheap just because it's cheap.

What are you wanting to do w/ it. You listed both magnified and non magnified optics.

sorry, i have been all over the place looking at different options. What i really want is something that will reach out to 75 - 200 yards and maybe a red dot for closer range.
