Down to one upper. WOA 24" 1-8 Varmint.Sightron SII 6x24x42. 2 lowers. Aero Precision w/ DPMS LPK and MOE stock w/Hogue Grip and a YHM w/Spikes enhanced LPK, A2 stock. I have my eye on a 1-8 polygonal 223/5.56 upper. Or start a winter project with a 6.5 Grendel or 6x45 build. I really want all three.
I managed to get the R-15 and scope sighted in this morning. Although cool, the wind was next to nothing for a few hours after dawn. I'm neither the most consistent shot, nor particularly skilled at sighting in rifles, so it took about 60 rounds to get to the point where I was satisfied. Starting at 25 yards I roughly adjusted for windage and elevation, then worked back through a few intermediate distances to 100 yards where I concentrated on zeroing in the scope to the best of my abilities.
I'm pleased with the results. My best grouping once I was done fine tuning the scope was 1.25" at 100 yards. This was with a Nikon Pro Staff 3-9x40mm scope and Remington 45gr hollow points.
I plan to try some other bullets in other weights to see what gives me the best consistency, but I'm pleasantly surprised with today's shooting. With any luck at all the rifle and I will get some coyotes soon.
My brother got jealous and wanted me to pimp his rifle on here too.
DPMS Sweet 16. Magpul stock, Timney trigger, Ergo grip, Burris PEPR mount, Sightron 4x16 scope, custom rattle can paint to match the Land of Enchantment. Sub MOA using 23gr Benchmark with 55gr Vmax. Tons of notches on this little rifle.
Don't think I've post here yet -I'm a newbe as far as the AR scene! My AR varmit rig is mainly a Colt H-BAR 20" with 4X Barska nothing fancy but it works! Where I mostly hunt 250 yards is a long shot as the Sage is big and if the yotes are in it they can be 10 feet away and you'll never see them!
Kind of a crappy pic but Mines a DPMS Arctic Panther in .223 with a 20" bull bbl wearing a nikon buckmaster 4.5-14x40 in warne tactical rings. It usually has the Caldwell tall bipod attached as well. Hopefully a triger job soon
