Just got back from the range. Sorry, no pics here.
After going round'n'round sighting in the Vortex, things went pretty well. I could have saved myself a lot of headache starting the sight-in process on the 25yd range.
I went through a few boxes of PMC 55gr and 62gr, and one box of Hornady 75gr BTHP. All shooting was done at 50yds. Most of the groups from the BCM were 1.5-2", and a little over 2" from the open sighted DD. I'm sure they're capable of better, I just need to improve my own skills and habits in order to get that from them. No failures, no hiccups of any sort. The pair handle pretty much the same, with basically identical triggers.
When the heavier RRA (also a 16" middy) with the 2-stage trigger arrives in a month or two, I'll probably get some magnification on that and really work on tightening up groups at 100-200yd ranges. That'll pretty much become my dedicated range AR...and maybe I'll call on it for some varminting as well.
