Default Smith M&P 15

Finished up my mods to my new S&W mp 15 seen here ------->http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/my-new-smith-m-p-15-a-26766/


Went out tonight and zeroed my red dot and cranked off a few rounds.
Started at 50 yds and was a little high adjusted down, point of aim was shoulder line of target. one shooter induced flyer on second group

--------------
Went to 100yards and covered Mr Smiley's head with the dot. Shot three groups starting with the lowest three. Kept increasing elevation to the top group of 5sht


Added about 2 moa right windage and fired a 12shot string from the bench as fast as I could acquire a center mass sight picture. (around 1shot/second)


Cont'd

Moved targets into 10yards and ran some drills before it got dark.


Was shooting rapid fire, transitioning from target, varying POA from center masses, to heads, target to target.
Shooting between 2-5 shots between transitions at a rate of about 4rds/second.
Working on mounting the rifle, acquiring and engaging targets, performing mag changes and trying to become familiar with the BAD lever. It is very smooth and fast, gonna take a little practice to really get used to using it though.


I always forget to aim a little high when shooting at close range. Need to work on that next time.
Shot around 150rds tonight bringing the round count up to around 250 total rounds fired since purchase. So far so good. No malfunctions, and fairly accurate for a carbine. I am very pleased with it so far

Carry on!

Love the Robot Zombie targets.

Or are those Van Gough impressions of liberals?

Well done.

Target definitely gets style points! I just put a new red dot on my C-93 tonight. I have never used one before but it looks like they can be pretty useful. Thanks for sharing!
