I jhave been struggling with my S&W 223 but i finially got a 1MOa . I Started with 23.5 of varget and hit the sweet spot at 24.3 . I shot 3 of each untill I hit 1 MOA. I still have to sit down and put Atleast 5 within1 MOA to prove it to myself but I feel like I can.

It's at 100yds. I just shot a 5 rd shot at 100 and it was a 1.25 MOA about a bullet width from being a 1 MOA. ;(. Still not too shabby for me anyways .

Your target is not viable the way it is. There are too many holes. Show us a target with only three holes in it that actually is a one MOA group. Then you have something.

I like to shoot five, 5 shot groups, and average the group sizes. That gives you a good idea of the consistency of the load.

Those are 1" squares on his zero target. Of you notice the key notes, he identified each 3 shot group with it's own symbol and corelated the load next to it.

Good job OP...
