    OK, so I took it out yesterday. It was a little windy, but since I was the only shooter on the range, NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER!!!

    Here's the gun I'm referring to.
    http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/another-one-down-41398/

    The gun shot 100% reliably, so much that even the 62 grain Wolf and Tula that has been rejected by some of my other ARs, cycled just fine (accuracy was non-existent, though). Recoil was very manageable.

    Overall accuracy was very acceptable, but not exceptional. The following picture is the best group from 100 yards, using 62 grain, BT Fiocchi ammo.

    The 1st 3 rounds were the closest bunch. (Should have made it a 3 round group ;)"it would've been sub.) The overall group size was about 2". The rest used was a front/pistol rest and a snadbag.

    Using Winchester White Box 55 grain, a couple of really nice groups came out in the 2"-4" range. Wolf and Tula were mostly all on paper. . . I had fun being able to shoot rapidly with the intent of disposing of the ammo completely. Also a couple of mags that had trouble in "Scrapy" and even other's feed w/o issue in this one.

    Overall, I was very impressed with the results.

    This one was supposed to be "For Sale", but now I'm reconsidering. :)

    Irons, while rested. I have yet to scope an AR. I have a red-dot on one and it improves the (my) accuracy quite a bit. I can't usually get under 2", but with the red dot I've shrinked it a bit.

    I have one ïn construction that will be scoped. :)

    Thank you sir. Let me make the conditions perfectly clear or else I'm gonna feel guilty now. . .

    The berms at the range are staggered in elevation. One up high at regular land height, then one about 10-15 ft lower, with the dirt from the excavation providing a wall for the next berm. I was in the only 100 yd berm that sits low and the wind was at my back, so it wasn't much of a factor.

    Also the fence that retains the dirt on the far side is at 100 yds, so the stands are usually set 20 ft in, out of dirt clod avalanche area. :)

    Now I can sleep tonight. . . :)

    You outta read the whole post, einstein. :rolleyes: OVERALL accuracy was in respect to the gun. NON-EXISTANT accuracy was in respect to the Wolf and Tula ammo.

    Notice you were the only one that had trouble with this. . . :confused:

    200 yards, second day out

    Here's what it shot at 200, rested. Today it will get shot again!

    You gotta 90 rotate it. It was hitting low. If I get it out today I'll dial it in slightly higher than x ring (1"-2") and see if I can tighted it up.
