I fired 7 5 shot groups after getting the scope sighted in and after figuring out how to set up the zero stop. My friend fired 2 5 shot groups for me. He beat me with my own gun and got the .59 5 shot group. Ammo was Federal match with 168 grain Sierra Bullets.

He was playing with some loads on his 5.56 that I assembled for him. It did really well with a new load I am trying.

The load data is on the pic. This load has shot well in all of my guns. My friends gun has a 1/9 twist barrel and it still shot it well.

Anyway it was a great day at the range. I got the side mounted red dot on my rifle sighted in at 25 yards. The back up irons at 50 and the scope was zeroed at 100. The muzzle brake took a lot of the recoil and muzzle flip away and the gun was easy to keep on target. It also was not as loud and did not give me a headache like it did when I had it installed on my previous .308 carbine. On the rifle it is further out there from my head and the concussion did not affect me like it used to on the carbine.

Is that a polymer (magpul?) magazine? I didn't know anyone manufactured polymer 308 mags for an Armalite?

No it is just a metal Armalite 20 round magazine.

Pat you need to precision reload for that GAP rifle. Hummmm, think what that dude would do then.

I do reload for it but I am still working on a load that is better than Federal Match. I am not quite there yet. Yea it sucks that he out shot me with my own gun. Lol

Yes, it is sometimes hard to beat FGM but the winner load is out there somewhere.

Ref the magazine: Dang! Somewhere, someone has or will shortly, figure out how to use the P-mags with an Armalite. Thought it might have been you.

Ref FGGM: Yeah the stuff is accurate but its also slow. I've been able to get just as good accuracy, better probably, with better velocity from a few of my handloads. The difference is FGGM will be accurate in whatever gun its put in. My ammo is for me only.

Know anyone who makes an adjustable gas block for the AR10? Besides JP precision, I haven't seen any.

Really nice rifle BTW.
