this was submitted by a fellow ARFCOM'er to me for posting and I must say this is a great looking rifle and one he obviously knows how to handle- beware bad guys in Wildwood, Fla !!



And the proof.............

What was the range?
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 6:36:17 AM EST
.223 as a sniper weapon? IBTL

Link Posted: 8/21/2004 10:24:33 AM EST
Range was 100 yards, and NO, this is not a sniper weapon. The build is solely for paper and varmint hunting.

We all catch a few good groups from time to time. You don't need a 12 lb. "tricked rifle".
Stock RRA 16" bbl. with Simmons 9x scope, std trigger.
Handloads at 100 yards. I forgot I had shot the left bull, hence the 6 shot group ( old age handicap LOL).
( BTW, I am 63 years old and available to demonstrate this on demand)

Now thats what I like to see, Standard rifles shining in the hands of a good shooter.

BTW, I personally feel that the 5.56/.223 has it's place as a "sniper" round. Before you start to flame...I temper this opinion with the caution that the shooter must be a well trained and disciplined shooter who is extreamly familiar with his weapon.

If I were to have a 5.56/.223 for such use, it certainly would not have a scope over 10X and I would definately not have a 24" barrel on it. It would be set up to shoot dead-on at 100 yards, with that being the maximum intended range.

Now, with that said, flame away .

Yep, I've seen him do it.

And, since he loads my ammo for my bench gun for free, I will swear that he does this all the time.
