Maybe I could do better

Recommended Posts

...on a warmer day with less wind. Wind chill had the "real feel" at about 18°. After mounting and sighting a new Bushnell Banner I was at the last 14 rounds and went for one group at 100 yards. Conditions were far from perfect, but I was able to squeeze out +/- 1.5 MOA. I sight for 1.4" high at 100 yards to give the round a 200 yard zero, so don't consider that the group isn't at the X. ;)

I like it, what ammo did you use?

Some reloads. 55gr hollow points with the cases filled to capacity with Varget.

I hope you measured differently than just "filled to capacity" :o

 

You might try some reloads with 77gn bullets, they buck the wind a little better. Especially if your barrel is 1:8 or 1:7.

Yeah, I did. It just so happens that 26.5 grains fills the case to within 1/16" of the case mouth and is a compressed load. Lee Second Edition says you can go up to 27.5. That overfills and causes the "charge through" die to clog. 

 

My barrel is 1:9 and likes 69 grain bullets real well. Midsouth Shooters Supply Varmint Nightmare 55gr. bullets are what I shoot most of. They are a fantastic bullet for the price. I had read somewhere that they are manufactured by Sierra, but I can't swear to that. They are extremely consistent, though.

Actually,

I think that is fine accuracy considering the HG is not free floated. I have not had a chance to get by Boyd's AR build out yet, but I will be more than happy with 1.5 MOA. Good job and fine shooting.
