Took out my HBAR this weekend, took off its little glass and put on my big Leupold 8.5-25 scope to see what the gun could do.

specs on gun, Colt HBAR 1/7 20" bbl with Miculek style comp.
Shooting xm193 from a bull bag @ 100 yards.

Medium fire pace probably 5-10 seconds per round.

The gun would group very well 1" Maybe 1.5 inches for ist 5 rounds then group would open up to nearly 2.5 3 inches by the time would get through a 20 round mag. Did it with several shooters.

Could it be because shooting slightly light rounds out of a 1/7 and once the bbl warmed up started throwing them?

O is it just that once a Colt HBAR bbl gets some heat into it, it starts spraying the rounds about?

Sorry I've removed many of the pictures from the arfcom server for space reasons, but Molon's excellent measurements should still be in there.

The summary is that when I was shooting 10-shot groups under good conditions (and with a bipod), average group sizes for XM193 were above 2 inches.

I'm not the world's best shot, but the consensus seems to be that XM193 is not really capable of much better than 2 MOA. You might get a good batch, but you certainly should not expect it.

Hmm, guess I will try again this weekend with some hornady ammo and see if the groups open up like that again. (Dang have to shoot on a Saturday again )
