Range Report

Okay, finally got to the range with the new AR.  I forgot to take any pics, sorry.  But my initial impressions.

The gisselle trigger is like buttah.  For a non-adjustable drop in trigger, that this is a dream.

The scope is geardo giggle worthy.  I zeroed on the 100 yard range and I know that the targets were exactly 94 meters from the shooting bench.

The JP Ent. SCS is interesting. I don't know if it's absorbing more recoil than a standard buffer/spring system, but felt recoil was much less. Still shooting M855 62 gr. Green Tip ammo.

Speaking of, I shot 60 rds of M855, another 40 rounds of Armscor 62 gr, and 80 rounds of M193 Federal.  Not a hiccup or even a hint of a malf.

I have to say that I'm well pleased with this rifle. It's a keeper.

Oh, and I was getting between dime and quarter sized three shot groups at 100. But that probably because I forgot my sandbags and I was shaking a bit.

Carl: I settled on the Burris Eliminator III 4-16 scope. Well, settled isn't the right work. I chose it because Geardo.
