    thank you sir, long reaching shots are few and far between in these parts so I don't get a chance to practice it a lot

    Okay, thanks. don't have any AR Comp. My results with H335 were less than impressive. Gonna try some RL15 next time I get to the bench.

    Thank You Mossy !

    as weight goes up the less I like 335. One of my favorites for the 55 and 53 gr loads

    AR Comp is said to be temperature stable RE-15......in my experience AR Comp is more poppy.

    do some research on the 24gr RE15 load with 77gr......supposedly the go to for service rifle comps in the military......or used to be or something, I have even read that load has won many military matches.... my rifle didn't shoot them as good as others I tried but your rifle might love it.

    The force is STROOOOOONG with you!

    Fantastic shooting brother. I know that's a great feeling and to share it with your boy is purely awesome. I'm really happy and proud for you. It's great to see you do it with the 1-6x too. Nicely done Sir...

    I shot 22, 23, and 24, on Saturday. The 23 was tightest. So those loads were 22.5, 23 and 23.5. 23.5 grouped best of those. I'm not going to try to break it down any more than half grain increments. My shooting ability won't show any improvement.

    I'm pretty content with that. I loaded up 50 just like that. Not gonna mess with any more adjustments till I get a chronograph. if its not raining this weekend i'll see how they do out to 400. Thats all the range I have at the time.

    Took two of the office girls to the range today. One is a USMC Afghan veteran, never shot a handgun

    I was floored Amanda(USMC) never shot a handgun.....firgrued everone got atleast qualify with one I in case one day that's all you got on hand

    She was in commo but no matter the job all Marines are riflemen so she shot the AR's well but was thrown some because it wasn't a rack grade M16.

    The other has had boyfriends that dabbled and she has shot some but never been really instructed.

    After about three hours they were shooting AR, CZ 9mm, and .......Super Blackhawk 44 mag.

    Although they had shot before they were basically needing instruction through all, other than the Marine with the AR's


    I had forgot how awesome it was to shoot with people like that. They would go out and look at the targets and point at all the holes " that one was mine".

    They each took home targets with totally respectable groups , and I mean they were proud of those targets, just smiling so big I thought their faces were going to break.

    What's cooler , they are both going to buy lower receivers on the first, was a great range day....and only shot 20 rounds, they shot about 120

    Unexpected....I knew they would have fun once I installed some fundamentals, didn't think I would have as much fun as I did watching them

    I know it's a good feeling brother.

    I'm sure they will remember the feeling for a long time and hopefully they'll pass what they learned on to others. It's as it should be...

    It's good that you were able to do that Oli. Sounds like they had a really good time and that's what matters.

    As for the handgun, I thought she would've had some experience there too, but I guess not. Glad she does now.

    In other news, I was able to try out the Ares reduced friction nitride bolt in my SBR yesterday evening.

    It was a home run.

    The bolt with the Tubbs flat coil buffer spring was a sweet combo. It felt good and it ran good.
