GTG. Took my home build to the range today. after using the 25m sight in target for a 300m zero we moved out to 100 yds. The 25m shows 2 groups of 3 shots. The 100yd. Target is all my shots from the day. I marked them after shooting, so all the circles don't mean much. Just helped me find our shots. I shot 3.5" groups most of the day with irons. Functioned 100% with both pmags and, mil surp.

55 grain remington fmj .223 out of a 5.56 1:9 heavy 16" middie.

I low it's not amazing, but I was happy it fired, and grouped well without a hiccup.

Congratulations, sir!

What will you do for an encore?

Encore? Shoot thousands of rounds through it, and try to get those 1" groups everyone else on the internet shoots.
