Default Social Distancing--Armalite .223 Wylde at 100 Yards

Five Rounds at 100 Yards
(Computer generated blue circle is 0.77")


Platform is an Armalite with a .223 Wylde bull barrel.
The good results are attributable to the following:

a) .223 Wylde barrel used by Armalite is inherently accurate

b) I tried various .223 and 5.56 factory ammo to find the best for use in this gun

c) Ammo is designed for match use

d) Bullet is the 69 gr Sierra Match King Boat Tail Hollow Point, a bullet well known for its accuracy.

e) Gun has a crisp two stage trigger with no creep

f) Solid shooting bench (took the carpet off)

g) Front square bag and rear pinch type bag

h) Leupold VX3i 4.5-14x40mm with adjustable objective

i) Felt tip marker circle makes an excellent target

j) Took my time and enjoyed myself!

This is the Armalite, wearing a bipod I did not use for the above shots and a 50mm scope that I sold off before getting the Leupold 40 mm.

A properly built AR, will shoot groups that are things of beauty!!! My 1996 Bushmaster A-4 will shoot my hand loads (55 Win FMJ/BT, 26 gr WW748, CCI Sm Rifle Mag primer, mil brass) in 5 shot groups of 1/4 @ 100yds. with a Veri-X III 4.5-14x40mm from sand bags on a very good bench.

My best friend was a company supply/armorer sergeant in the Ohio NG in the late 80's though Dessert Storm. Aberdeen sent him 3 M-16's rebuilt on very old X-15 lowers! These guns all had a price tag hanging from the trigger guard, that were dated, signed and counter signed, they also contained a 10 shot group of 1" using Ball ammo @ 200 meters, ISSUE SIGHTS! (I have never met anyone that could shoot an M-16/AR-15 that well, I guess that is why they worked at Aberdeen Proving Ground until it closed down!)
