    Yesterday I found a local shop with some 69gr Federal Gold Medal in stock so I bought a couple boxes to see what kind of groups I could put together with my AR.

    Both groups are 5 shots each taken @ 100 yards.

    [​IMG] This was a half moa group until I hosed the last shot :o

    [​IMG] This was the best group I was able to pull together. It measures right around .78".

    There were two other groups that meaured in at 1 1/8" and the rest were in the 1.5-2" range. I was getting more consistent by the end of the day, but I just need to shoot more really. Before today I hadn't been out in over a month.

    20" Lilja stainless w/ 1:8 twist

    I have a Simmons 6-20x on it that I took off a 10/22. Its supposed to be temporary until I have the funds to get something nice.

    Thanks :bigthumb:
     
  5. Nice job! Are you measuring your groups center to center?
