    Nice, but i figured you would use targets with groundhogs on them, maybe some ketchup packs taped to the back too.

    That is a RRA Predator pursuit rifle with a 1:8 twist 6-24x50mm Nikon Monarch in 3/4" tall Burris Extreme tactical rings. I wanted skinnier rings but the only ones I could find were Leupold and they were $150 and I got the Burris for $15 well Free really.

    Load is

    60gr V-max
    R-P Cases
    AA2015 23.2gr
    Wolf mag primer.

    The International Benchrest Shooters have an AR class this year. Only a couple strange rules (IMHO). No muzzle device at all, this is so the people running the match don't have to figure out what is a brake and what is not. The second is only 1 20 round mag. Granted, each relay is only 5 shots and whatever you shoot at the sighter. I shoot anywhere from 7 to 12 round in a relay.

    Bring that AR out and show the hot shots an AR will shoot.

    Then post them up. Mine is not build for that type of shooting. Mine is built to shoot off a rest or a bipod.

    Heres a target from this weekend. Rounds were fired from 25 yards in 5 shot groups, rapid fire, manipulateing the safety, standing pulling the weapon from the slung position for each group. 60 rounds of 5.56 were fired into this target. This has been my best results to date.

    My 6.8, 100 yards ladder workups using up to 28.5gr AA2200, 115gr Nosler CC pills, SSA once fired brass, CCI41 primers. The bottom right hand target is the best load. 5 rounds, 1 fllier, .55 MOA The flier because I got excited about the group with that load....buck fever!

    AR's are inherently accurate.
