I am glad someone actually quoted the military standard for ball ammo performance.

The AR-15 has gotten a reputation as a rifle that is more accurate that most autoloaders (2-3MOA), and we have become spoiled by that.

The fact is the military spec. will allow a combination of ammo and rifle to be MUCH greater than the average shooter sees.

When guys have a rifle built using pseudo-military spec. parts and feed it bulk ammo, and get 4 or 5 MOA, they tend to assume the rifle is junk, but in reality, it's meeting the military expectations.

I hope to get some good testing done on this weekend with the 62gr Winchester.

Here is a chart I use when researching ARs.





You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.
