Default Range Report!!

I finally had time to get back to the range with proper ammo (not Tula garbage). Warmed it up plinking some cans then tried my best. I have a feeling the rifle is more accurate than its owner . Id rather it be this way then the other way around.

Distance: 100 yards
Ammo: UMC 55gr .223
Wind: 7-10 knots
Temp: 35°F

The groups circled in red are just for sighting in. I went around the clock first, then returned with another group, circled in blue. I was having trouble with the wind, it was quite gusty and I'd rather not have it for this first "base" target. Overall, I'm beyond happy with my build and already have plans for the next one!!

Edit: The group in the center measures 5/16".

It came glossy . It was attached to a hunting rifle I no longer have. It was lying around, it needed a home, my SUR needed some sort of sighting system.... good enough for now. I'm already looking for a nicer one in a flat finish.

That'll do. Good shooting too.

So... I need four more? Each one a different configuration? Take them all apart, mix all the parts together on a table, and put them together respectively? While blindfolded? Hanging upside-down by the ceiling fan? While its on?? With the rest of the mods holding paint ball guns???
