Accuracy expectations?

I have a bushmaster 14.5" or 16" 1 in 9 twist, telestock and am wondering what kind of accuracy I should expect?

I put an Eotech on top and shot 50 and 100 yds today. Only had two kinds of ammo some PMC Bronze and some S&B both 55gr boat tail (I believe) and Remmington.

Will better ammo help my groups tighten up at all? I'm thinking some Black Hills 60ish gr. or ??? Or is this the best the gun will do?

I am capable of sub-moa shooting. The ar is a new beast for me. And I havent done any trigger, and am not really interested in upgrading optics (cept maybe for one of those 3x + flip mounts that sits in front of the dot, but they're awfully $$$)

Left to right is the target order (from mounting the sight to dialing it in) All except the lastare @ 50yds. 25yrd pistol slowfire target (1" red in middle I believe).

Is my gun a 2MOA @ 100 yd gun? Or will better ammo get me markedly better results?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff
