RRA's first time to the range.
 
All I can say is I looked like a a fat kid in a candy store today. I played a little hooky from work and headed to the range. After I got it sighted in I took the one load 2015 and burned off the rest of them. I loaded a Pmag full of them and stood up and peppered a log at 100 yards as fast as I could pull the trigger. I forgot how much I loved a semi auto. The Trigger HOLY HELL that thing is sweet effing sweet. 3# of take up and maybe .5# let off OMG it was really nice. messed me up shooting my remmy though I forgot that she has a #1 trigger on her. The Remmy might be sad this ground hog season as I think the AR is going to be on my shoulder the entire season. Now I need to scout an area that provides me a target rich environment. Not a single hiccup nothing but flawless shooting performance.

I shot just over 60 rounds and found that both loads shot really well.

Here is my load
60gr V-max
24gr AA 2015
Rem Case
BR4 Primer.

Here is the load I got off of 6mmbr.com
60gr V-Max
25gr H4895
Rem Case
BR4 primer

Now before you call BS because I didn't enclude the two shots to the left. This was my final adjustment of the scope.

Wow! .285MOA without the flyers, that is really, REALLY good shooting Tango.

What program is that you are using? That is pretty nice.

Very nice day off if you ask me. Thanks for sharing.

Damn showoff. :rolleyes:

Sounds like the harmonics are good on that stick, good choice and combination of RRA custom stock there Tango.

Nice shooting there, even for a fat kid. :p

Welcome to the wonderful world of the black rifle Tango. Now you know why my coyote rifle is my DPMS bull barrel. I believe yours will outshoot mine though. I'm assuming handloads as opposed to factory loads?

Damn nice. Your new name is Dead-Eye Tango, or DET for short. :D

cpttango30 03-18-2010 09:30 PM

When they said 3/4 MOA That was what I was expecting 3/4" at 100 yards. This thing has handloads that I just put together and didn't load for it or nothing. I loaded to mag length and use a couple of loads I found on the internet and checked them with my manuals.

I am sure I could get her down even tighter with more effort in the hand loading front. I still need to get some cheap fodder for it as well. This thing is going to cost me a lot of money because dam it is so fun to shoot and shoot fast. LOL......

DET,

I thought about renaming you Dead-Eye Brett, but thought you would not like DEB for short. :D

Great shooting, Tango. :cool:

And to think, it seems like only yesterday.....
