Here is today's group report.

Test Sat March 9, 2002. A2 style after a rechamber to 5.56 match for reliability sake.
All groups at 100 yards off of front and rear bags with a 12 power scope and aimtech mount (the cheap aimtech mount has in the past held better than the ARMS model)
All were 5 shot groups, and I am reporting total size and closest 3. I used a sewing ruler and measured from the start of one hole to the start of another. 1/8 was a close as I could get, so I rounded up or down as seemed correct.
The gun had liked ultramax with the nosler bullets, but I was out of that today. Wind was calm, temps in the low 50s, just when I was bringing the target stand in was when the big storm front hit.
