Up front...
Don't want no whimpy ass, off the bench groups at 100 yards with pictures and how she ran, etc.
Gotta have sling supported, 300 yard, hard holdin', rapid fire 10 shot strings so we can see what'll do.
Then add 11 clicks and let's see what she'll do at an honest 600 yards.
That is ONE FINE MACHINE!

Thanks JB, I will try my hand at some Standing hard holdin 100 yards groups but I don't have a Sling for this one yet and was actually going to ask for some suggestions with that?? Thinking a Nice leather sling for this rifle..

I will share how she runs but wil try and keep that to a minimum per your request.. :wink:
We have 200 yards and I will try that eventually, don't have 300 or 600 yards but I sure would give it a Go if we did..
Hell I figure "IF" I can shoot her half as good as she looks I have another keeper.. :whiskey:

Turner. Not too pricey but VERY good quality.
A standard in Hipower competition.

Well JB here is my range report......
First off the Gun functioned perfectly as I expected it would.. Trigger feels nice, mags lock in place with a Good snap and after shooting the Gun I am really stoked with her..

Tried 5 Ammo types and 6 diff mags all worked like they should...
THIS rifle it would seem as well as my Other M-14 DOES NOT like the FEDERAL TACTICAL ammo so I won't be trying any more of that..
I did NOT shoot any FED GMM but will next trip out.. Sight in was uneventful and She shot a couple real nice groups @ 50 yards so before we left I taped up a NEW Target @ 100 yards and shot a Full mag of 20 standing with NO Glove, Jacket, or Sling........

PLEASE NO Laughing as I know I won't win any matches but this was as good as I could do today anyway.. It's been awhile since I tried this in earnest and never with this gun so I think I did O.K. with it.. Truly an honest 20 rounds in about 3 maybe 4 minutes with my Son spotting for me..
The One DROP in the BTM left corner (Circled Black X) I knew was bad when I pulled the trigger but at least I knew I did it... Ammo BTW was a Box of Circa 79 SB from my stash..

Oh & YES I know there are 20 More holes in the Target, I shot them from the AR before we left.. Did those Much faster as it was almost time to go cold range by then.. 30 Cal Holes are obvious but I circled then with a Black sharpie anyway..

So without further delay here ya go, and NO FUGGING LAUGHING remember.. :shades:

Dude! You did that offhand? Yikes I'd be lucky to get any in the 5 Ring offhand. I believe you should try some decent Milsurp next, it's a 1in11
IIRC and it shot most misurp very well. I give my eye teeth for a target
like that in a High Power match offhand.

Your offhand is well within minute of bad guy at 100yds. What more can you ask?
Looks like you're consistent with both rifles. A good day of shootin I'd say.

YES Sir, 20 rounds offhand and I did the best I could.. Looks like my shots are a BIT more LEFT than right but if that ends up being the pattern I can dial in a bit of R/Windage...
That target was with SANTA BARBARA Surplus but I have several other types of surplus to try as well as working up a Handload....
Thanks BEN... :beer:

I noticed both rifles seem to print pretty close as well.. I was using my Handload in the AR and I hope to do better with that next trip but I still need a LOT of practice... Minute of BAD GUY is Good enough so I will try and fix the drops at least.. ;)

That's a BACARAT Maduro I like them, not the one I usually buy as they were out but still a GOOD Smoke...
Glad ya like the Rifle, I'd say it's a Keeper.. :D
