    went to the range, I should get pictures for you guys next time I go. Its a little hokey but its a cool place.

    Found out wolf is very dirty ammo.
    Found out I do need a longer barrel on my ar.
    Due to the barrel shortness and with my bipod I just got, just breathing moved the crosshairs 4in left or right on a target 100yds away.
    Found out with wolf I gotta clean the ar every 300rnds or so.
    I found out I'm getting better and now doing 2in groups at 100yards.
    I found out there is an old guy that walks around the pistol range and picks up casings to reload.

    What zoom were you at? The higher the zoom, the more it moves when you breathe/move.

    2" at 100 yard is not great, you need more practice, maybe try some slighty better ammo.

    The movement is the same, but is more easily seen with more magnification. I think that's probably what you were trying to say :cool:

    If your doing 2" with wolf, time to use better ammo if you better accuracy cause that's all your ever going to get out of wolf.

    I was doing 3-4 the first time I went. Yesterday was the second time I went to the club and towards the end of the time I was there I was doing 1-1.5in.

    I usually put up about 4 of the 100 yard range targets from walmart that have the big target and the one in each corner.

    I was at 20x magnification

    What ammo do you reccomend? Look at this list

    for ammo, basically any commercial loaded .223 is going to be better than wolf. Even the remington value pack stuff at walmart will shoot better.

    what's the deal with wolf besides it being dirty, what makes one brand of ammo more accurate than another? More consistent powder charge?

    Yeah pretty much.

    Oh, and if you are new to shooting take the scope off. Learn to shoot with irons first, it will make you a better shooter.
