What kind of accuracy should I be getting with my MRP?

14.5" + permanently attached Phantom

Q3131A

Aimpoint Comp-M3 2MOA

Accuracy Speaks single-stage trigger

I can't do much better than 5-6" at 100yds. I used to shoot more like 4" with the Bushmaster 14.5+phantom, 1/9 with the same ammo.

If I use Black Hills 68gr HP Moly it tightens up considerably though. Is it an issue with the twist? I thought 1/7 should be fine for 55gr. Or did the permanent attaching of the flash hider screw it up somehow?

I don't think so, although I don't have a torque wrench. I've only put about 300 rounds through it since I got it new, and have never changed the barrel.

What kind of groups are others with 14.5" barrels getting with Q3131A?

A good while after I got my 18" SS 1/8 MRP barrel from WES, I actually benched the 14.5" CL MRP barrel with a NSX 3.5-15X50 scope to see what kind of accuracy I could get out of it while I was waiting on WES to get my 16" SS 1/7.

I was pretty unimpressed by the 2 to 2.25 MOA my 14.5" MRP barrel gave me with Q3131A, especially in comparison to the 1.25 MOA of my 14.5" Bushmaster 1/9 HBAR.

Winchester 55 grain Ballistic Silvertips gave an improvement to maybe 1.5 MOA, certainly nothing to write home about.

But it was the Hornady TAP 75 grain that shot just under MOA with the 14.5".

Now out of my MRP barrels, my 18"SS 1/8 barrel seems to prefer 55 to 69 grain loads, my 14.5" CL 1/7 the 75 and 77 grain, and the 16" SS 1/7 loves it all, .5 MOA with 55gr Silvertips or 75gr TAP.

Yeah, the first time I swapped my 14.5" for your 18"SS with the T-handled Sekonic torque wrench at the range even those guys with the neon colored stocks on their polished stainless Remington target rifles had to come check it out.
They were particularly amazed when I then attached the NSX/LT scope & mount and proceeded to rapidly nail the center of the target at 100 yards with Silvertips after adjusting nothing!
Thanks to the MSTN QC brake, they quickly retreated back to their benches at the other end of the range except for one guy who said, "man, I've got to try out that brake, that rifle's not moving at all." He put 6 rounds in less than 10 seconds into a 1/2" circle, and then was all smiles.

Edwin,
Could you post a link, or any available info on that T-handle torque wrench please. It will make a nice Christmas present.

ETA: Disregard I found it www.seekonk.com

Looks like semi-final config - (going SBR soon so I can use the 10.5 barrel I have interchangeably, but pretty set on the light, optic, bipod setup)




PS anyone know where to get a sling mount that fits in the hole on the side?

Hm, mine's older so doesn't have the hole, I'd assume you can put any QD sling stud. I wouldn't do it if I had the newer one though, it's an odd place to put a sling

I really really need to get me a CQB MRP SBR. You guys are killing me with all the great picks of your shorties. Maybe early next year.

As for accuracy, I'm pleased to report that I'm getting better results out of my 16" SS MRP. I just got some Mk262 (seconds) and was able to get some reliable 3/4MOA groups. These are running around 2725 fps out of this barrel. Up till now, I've been getting roughly MOA with the best factory and hand loads that I've been testing, so far. But, most of my hand loads have been pretty slow in the 2400-2500FPS range. Scope is a Leupold at 10x.

Coincidentally, I just started loading 77gr SMK over TAC powder for my 18" Kreiger SPR Mod 0. Groups with this rifle seem to be tightening up as I get up into the 2700 fps range. I usually find a couple of accuracy points as I increase powder charge. But, this just seems to be getting better and better as I get close to the top end. Nothing spectacular in the lower velocities. Do you guys see the same?

I'll start testing the TAC in the MRP once I settle on a load for the SPR.

Wouldn't it be nice if the surprise from LMT at the SHOT would be that the MRP could use standard barrel extensions?

So Wes, instead of asking you what the surprise may be, how about this question.......
If I'm not going the 6.8mm route, will it still be a good news for me?

I attended a "patrol carbine operator" course today using my MRP. Through 900+ rounds fired through the one day course, my MRP was the only set-up on the line that did not have a single failure. I am very pleased

Ohhhhh.

I am still holding off on purchasing a 13.6/2 upper. Gosh, I wonder what the Shot Show will bring. Maybe they'll give all of us owner free keychain dongles...or better yet....FORGED....CNC MACHINED......PENS....I can't even imagine how many of those they would sell.

Here is the upper along with the sidekick.

Chen dropped the bomb a while back about a possible piston conversion for the MRP as well. I would be very happy with either. Just 68 days 14 hours 18 minutes and 22 seconds to Shot Show!!!!
