Much needed rain kept me from going to the range earlier than today.

My range's benchrest positions are "tunnels" made of 8X8" railroad ties that keep errant shots from going over or to the sides of the berm which doesn't have downrange safety zones but the downside was that I couldn't get my so so benchrest device (MTM) low enough to get on target at 100 w/o the AR pistol grip resting on the slippery plastic surface.

So, shot at 50 and I'm not the world's best benchrest shooter. Got a 6-shot group of 0.5". Fun gun, makes a lot of commotion at the backstop.

A lot more recoil than a typical .223 AR but nothing at all to worry about. Don :supergrin:

I have 400 rds of factory ammo (minus what I shot today) as feedstock for reloading. Don't anticipate this being a gun I'll fire massive numbers of rounds per visit to the range. Don

That cartridge is getting great reviews! I had a 6.8 for a while,
decided to just go to .308 as I have a bolt rifle in .308 as well.

Sounds like she is a tack driver,.........congrats!

Thanks. Always wonder how a new gun is going to perform and with a semi auto, reliable feeding is a real priority. Don
