This is a shot of a 30 round grouping at 50 yards I did with the AR today shooting from a soft rest (my range bag ammo carrier) on a table, with Tula .223 FMJ. I didn't make any attempts to tighten the zero up other than 2 clicks of windage after I did this, but it could definitely improve. I'm not going to take time to get it dialed in perfectly until I get some LC ammo that's worth zeroing with.
Also, my 10/22 slaughters this at 50 yards, next time I'll compare them at 100 yards.
I was lucky enough to get out to my Farm this weekend.
It took me a good thirty rounds to zero the rifle in however that was my fault, I was only using a stool for a rest. So I think I might need to make a few minor adjustments. Overall my best group of the day at 100 yards was 1,1/4" which I was happy with considering my lack of preparation. My dad was shooting about a 1.5-2" group. I rubbed that in a bit.
It started to belt down with rain and didn't get a chance to take a pic of the group, next time with better preparation I'll take some pics.
Overall very happy with the Rem 700, reduced the trigger pressure to about 2lbs (standard out of the box is 3.5 lbs) which is perfect for me.
So I noticed something about my AR magazines the first day I shot it, it seems they have become permanently stained with some kind of ****. I'd guess the CLP that was in the rifle while it was warm, or whatever awful smelling assembly lubricant PSA uses. The miscoloration is permanent as far as I can tell. These are D&H gray teflon magazines. Is this normal..or..?
