Another software tip -- measure the longest calibration distance you can -- i.e. if you have 1" squares on your target, don't just measure one square. Measure 5-8 squares (however many you have visible in the picture) and enter that distance.

This will minimize error from the positioning of your start and end points.
OK, CORRECTION TO MY EARLIER ENTRY...when I did the target software calculations I was careful and edged on being conservative, but in any case (just to be sure) I went ahead and removed the target software measurements image and included individual close-up pictures of each group measured by hand, and reposted my entry below. Score actually improved from 0.717MOA to 0.713MOA.

Also if anyone cares...there appears to be a math error in the bolt gun division on current place holder #40 (jKohntrol_Solutions).  The sum of the groups was correctly stated as 3.855", which when divided by 5 is 0.771", and not 0.750" as shown...this would change the MOA value for that entry from 0.717 to 0.736 (and de-conflict a tie that exists at 0.717...prior to my corrected entry above my average was also 0.717MOA...which is why I was looking.)

Went to range to sight in after installing new rings and trigger on my Christensen MPR. Only brought 15 rounds of handloads, but decided to round it out with Hornady ELD Match factory ammo. I'm pretty happy with it considering its a hunting gun weighing under 10 pounds including optic.

Would have been well under half if weren't for the shot in the top right group. I called a good shot on that one so I don't know what happened there.

Do you notice much for mirage shift with the suppressor?  What cover are you using and does it seem to help with heat dissipation or only as a protection against touching the hot can?

Wait till you get informed of the rear bag restrictions....

Calculation format is still off just a bit as well, but you’re making progress.

Here's my submission. I'd like to compete in the SPR division.

Edit: Please take me off the "claim" board. That said, my quote was in reference to a different rifle, and I do have a 700 SPS varmint in .223 that shoots insane groups for a factory gun. I'll dust it off some other time to backup those claims.

1.) Photo of the target posted @ 100 yards:


2.) Photos of the target with group sizes posted:


3.) Best 5-shot group:


4.) Rifle Setup:


Average CTC Group: .780"
MOA: .7448 ~ rounded to .745

Info:
SPR Division / 100 yards/ SuperDutyMikeMc / YHM lower (franken-AR) / .223 / 18" Larue Stealth Barrel / Viper PSTG1 SFP 6-24x50 /SiCo Omega Suppressor / Atlas Bipod / 69GR TMK over 23.1 8208XBR @ 2704FPS / Groups: .282 / .869 / 1.409 / .485 / .856 = Avg .780" = .745 MOA

It's just a 6"x 4" bean bag filled with play sand.

Edit: I believe it conforms to the rules; it's not even my bag. I only own "eared" rear bags, so just used one from the range.

Here's a photo of the range, and 3 of the bags stacked on top of each-other; most shooters I see at the range stack 4-5 of them to create a front rest.

I'm going to throw this out and ask for a decision of the judges.  

I was testing some differing length OALs yesterday not thinking about the MOA challenge and ended up with some darn good groups. Problem is I didn't use a single target, I used my usual target board with multiples.

Defender 3, SPR Division, LaRue .260 Remington with Vortex 4.5-27 and suppressed with a LaRue TranQuilo. Hornady 130gr ELD-M (with differing OALs and thus the different POIs) at 100 yards using a triad rear bag and Atlas bipod: 0.412, 0.517, 0.533, 0.497 and 0.769 = 2.728/5 = 0.5456MOA.









Target board I usually use for 100y.

Alright, I went back and re-shot the challenge using an approved Accuracy International rear bag. Being currently unemployed at least has the advantage of allowing more range time!  I went to the IWLA range in Stafford. It was a nice 74 degrees and 60% humidity with bright sun and no wind.

There are a few more pictures since I screwed up last trip.

The target board at the firing line:



The targets at the 100 yard line:



A view back to the firing line:



The rifle setup used with the AI rear bag. Please note the second AI bag is what I use to rest my elbow since I shoot from the far edge of the mat, it was not used to support the rifle.



The five strings on one target:



A closer view:



The OnTarget assessment:



If anyone has a question or needs clarification, throw it in the discussion thread or drop me an IM.

SPR Divison, Defender3, LaRue Tactical PredatOBR in .260 Remington, Vortex Razor 4.5-27, Hornady Factory 130gr ELD-M, Atlas Bipod, AI rear bag, Groups per OnTarget: 0.620; 0.442; 0.876; 0.504 and 0.507 = 2.949/5 = 589.8 MOA.

ETA - SuperJLarge noted the OT program was set to Meters instead of yards, so I ran the calculations again.  I'm keeping the original data, but adding the corrections here.

New OnTarget calculations using yards:



SPR Divison, Defender3, LaRue Tactical PredatOBR in .260 Remington, Vortex Razor 4.5-27, Hornady Factory 130gr ELD-M, Atlas Bipod, AI rear bag, Groups per OnTarget: 0.664; 0.477; 0.923; 0.539 and 0.538 = 3.141/5 = 0.628MOA.

Nice shooting Defender!

May need to rescore that target though. Your ontarget software is measuring for 100m but you said you shot at 100yds. Won’t affect much, but when you’ve got a top 15 submission it probably needs to be as precise as the weapon you used to get it!

Holy cow, didn't even notice that - thanks!  I'll redo the OT calculations and replace the picture and entry.

My caliper's battery died, is it necessary to redundantly post that as well as the above software target?

Did some load development with my new Ruger Precision Rifle, and figured I would do the challenge at the same time.  So each of the groups shown is with a different powder charge.  Of course it started to rain pretty hard right about when it was time to put out the targets.

Bolt Division. Range is 100 yards.  Ruger Precision Rifle.  6.5 Creedmoor, 140gr ELD-M, H4350, WLR primers, Hornady once fired brass.









0.884"/0.513"/0.484"/0.500"/0.483"  Average 0.572" / .546 MOA

5.11 IFAK pouch that I put some beads in.  I tried a couple years ago to make a few different bags, but none worked the way I wanted.  If I want it tall, I can use the MOLLE strap to wrap my hand in while I squeeze.  If I want it short or medium, I have that option too.  It collapses down under the rifle weight, but gives me enough height when I squeeze to allow me to use a 20-round PMAG with the 6.5 or a 30-round mag with 5.56 without it hitting the deck, which is why I use it.
