Sorry to say I haven't been able to shoot this rifle since 2014, and barrel was new at that time. Got it out today with FGMM 168s to see what I could do. I haven't done any precision shooting for about 3 years. Jon Wolfe did this rifle and it's his mod-fib stock, Armscorp NM receiver, Krieger DMR 18 inch barrel.

Old picture but same setup.

Warmed up at 50.

Covered up the 50 to shoot 100 on same target.

100 yards. The bottom of the middle orange is my last 10 rounds fired. Some of the cover ups on this came off from wind and impacts. Wind was not terrible. Nice day.

This is very encouraging to me. In the first couple outings with the rifle I couldn't get 5 rounds to do as good as I hoped. It's fouling up more now I think. Settling in. Also, max power was 9x so I could do a little better with 15-20x. The cover up stickers betrayed me a couple times, so it's not crystal clear what is what, but that 10 shots in the center are 1.5 edge to edge. The upper left is right at an inch edge to edge. Couple others in the 1.5 range on the edges.

The upper 2 groups have a cover up in the vicinity of the groups, but those were 1 off rounds I messed my holds up for. Group on the left was high so I held the dot under and it went higher. So that cluster above it is only 4 rounds. The upper right group the whole cover came off so that's from the 50, and also 4 rounds. The cover by that is another wrong hold by yours truly.

Looking good Pete! Things will tighten as you get reacquainted with your old love.

Jon's team builds good rifles. I know them both.

That looks great Pete! Nice shooting and a great rifle too. I need to get with it myself and have one built too. I've never had an M14 before they look great!

Thanks BB. Tell you what, there's never been a better time to build up an M14 than now. Not only the forged receiver options but barrels and parts are now more plentiful and cheaper than ever. Also more options with regard to stocks. You also have tonyben to do the work now too. Don't let him fool you though, he makes the shooting part look easy. Big Grin
