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?

THE CORRECT 140 INCH-POUNDS OF TORQUE REQUIRED IS WELL BEYOND "FINGER TIGHT". I CHECK THE TORQUE ON ALL OF MY CUSTOMERS' MRP'S BEFORE SHIPPING. THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO REQUIRE A BIT OF TIGHTENING UP. DUFFY'S POINT ABOUT CHECKING IT WOULD BE WORTH YOUR WHILE.

DIFFERENT LOTS OF THE SAME TYPE AMMO WILL HAVE DIFFERENT ACCURACY, OR LACK THEREOF. Q3131A IS DECENT BLASTING AMMO. IT IS HARDLY PRECISION AMMO, HOWEVER. ALSO, THAT 55 GRAIN Q3131A SHOT BETTER IN YOUR 1X9" THAN IN YOUR 1X7" SHOULD NOT COME AS A SURPRISE. GROUPS SHOT WITH AN AIMPOINT ARE NOT ALWAYS INDICATIVE OF A COMBINATION'S ACCURACY POTENTIAL, TOO.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR MRP WILL DO IN TERMS OF ACCURACY, GET SOME DECENT MATCH GRADE AMMO, LIKE FEDERAL PREMIUM OR MK 262. AND A SCOPE! CLEANING THE BARREL NEVER SEEMS TO HURT, EITHER. LET US KNOW HOW YOU DO.

WITH LMT CHROME LINED MRP BARRELS, I CAN PUSH MOA WITH DECENT AMMO. OCCASIONALLY, I CAN GO UNDER IT. IN BLASTING AMMO, I HAVE FOUND ONE LOT OF PMC WE HAVE TO BE THE MOST ACCURATE, 1.25 MOA. BUT, THIS IS WITH ME SHOOTING. I'M ADMITTEDLY NOT MUCH OF A BENCH REST SHOOTER. PAUL THINKS THE TWO TRIPLE LATTES I START THE DAY WITH MAY BE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

Wes,
Can I order one of those with a lanyard and a kydex sheath?

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.

WHAT'S ONE OF THE BIGGEST REASONS TO OWN AN MRP??? TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ABILITY TO EASILY CHANGE BARRELS.

ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE BARRELS:



PLUS A COUPLE OF MINUTES OF YOUR TIME.

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?
I'm lookin' for a nice Jewish virgin...............ian
