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.

Well here goes nothing!!

I had no plans on using this rifle for the MOA challenge, until I shot it earlier for LTs 'Outshoot the Shootist' challenge.

1st, the range.



And I zoomed in a little, so you can see that really is a target down there.  



The aftermath:



More aftermath, with calipers.



Last, but not least, the rifle.  Factory LT 6.5G, Sig Tango6 2-12, YHM 7.62 Phantom Ti.



I'd be happier if I hadn't pulled a few, but considering I'm just starting to get serious about shooting at longer ranges, I can't complain.

ETA:

SPR 100yd:  mi650.  LaRue 6.5 Grendel factory rifle, ACS stock, Sig Sauer Tango6 2-12x40 in an LT104, Harris bipod w/LT mount, Crosstac rear bag.

Group 1: .6235, 2: .964, 3: .6625, 4:  .774, 5:  .584 = 3.608/5= .7216 average MOA.

@mi650

Nice shooting! Is that the 9-13 Harris?

You actually did better than you posted. 6.5 Grendel is .264, not .256 for its diameter.

Congrats again on a good outing.
Link Posted: 8/4/2018 12:40:52 AM EDT
Thank you sir!!

I wasn't sure on the conversion, so I just went with 6.5mm = inches.

I don’t get all of the nuances of this challenge but here goes...Bergara HMR 6.5 creedmoor. Vortex viper pst2 3-15.

6.5 creedmoor, 100 yards. Doing load development with Hornady 147g eldm, Starline brass, and h4350. These loads are safe in my rifle, all rights reserved.

The first group is 10 rounds. I wasn’t planning on doing the challenge. I was just testing these loads for accuracy. So it’s a total of 30 rounds. If that breaks the rules I can handle it.

With the suppressor attached I’m guessing it would  have been dead center of the boltface.

Question, is that bag the legal one to use, and if so, what is it so I can get one too for when I decide to have the balls to do this and post my embarrassments

Rules says rear bags were legal?

Yes this one is 4x4". It's a standard squeeze bag with a loop in it for your hand.
I also use a 4x6 depending on rifle.

Groups average out to be .326" or .311 MOA but I'll have someone run on-target and see what they get. Orange target spots are 2" (1.998" on my calipers).

Bolt gun class:
Lennyo3034: ARC Nucleus, 6 Dasher, MPA chassis, March scope: .259",.365",.214",.489",.182",.449"= .326" average=.311 MOA.

I'm wondering if it could have tightened up a bit if I didn't have the magnetospeed mounted, but I needed velocity data more than accuracy. I've switched rear bag from the triad to the GAP rear bag.

Not sure why a 'standard squeeze bag' is so heavily concentrated on when the shooting should be focused on.

Per the rules:
5. OK TO USE sandbag, rest, ruck, bipod, rock with a hat, sling etc. on forearm of the rifle.
**Will be OK to use a small rear sandbag (ie: sand sock or squeeze bag) or bean bag that must require constant hand pressure to maintain hold on target.
IE. Can NOT sandbag gun in place. Shooter must maintain positive control of rifle. No formed or V-shaped rests/bags
Seems clear to me.

Here's my entry into the open division.



Open Division/100 Yards/SuperDutyMikeMc/Remington 700 .223 SPS Varmtin/McMillan A5, Atlas Bipod, Leupold VX3 6-20x50, Rifle Basix 2oz trigger/52gr SMK behind 26.1 of Varget/.566 MOA over 7 5-shot groups.

Shot off a bipod with a protektor eared rear bag

Edit: Just for yall's amusement, this rifle has over 4,000 rounds on it, survived me first learning about JB bore paste, and had a SS pin shot down the tube last week. I wouldn't want to look at the barrel through a bore scope, but it'll shoot those 52gr matchkings. It's getting rebarreled in a month or so; have a 1:7 Krieger blank ready to go. I figured I'd give it it's last hurrah in this challenge.

Other pics as I don't believe they're required because of my other submissions.

Reshot it again today; this time with supporting pictures. Didn't clean the gun overnight though.

.634 MOA avg over 85 rounds.

Nice shooting.  But this thread is for submissions to the Challenge ONLY.  This is not a legal submission.  Please do not post such things in this thread.  There is a One MOA All Day Discussion thread where you could post this.  Thanks. - Old_Painless

3. Each group is measured OUTSIDE GREASE RING TO OUTSIDE GREASE RING

It looks like you are measuring the edge of the holes not the grease ring.

Is it that hard?  Everyone else does it.

Example

SPR 100yd: mi650. LaRue 6.5 Grendel factory rifle, ACS stock, Sig Sauer Tango6 2-12x40 in an LT104, Harris bipod w/LT mount, Crosstac rear bag. Group 1: .6235, 2: .964, 3: .6625, 4: .774, 5: .584 = 3.608/5= .7216 average MOA.

This is almost the same rig I used for my 1/16/2018 submission.  The only change is the PSA 18” SS barrel has been replaced with a 20” Stealth.  Not sure what happened with that last group, but I noticed later the bipod was loose, so maybe that caused it.  Or maybe I was just getting tired.  Sitting perfectly still behind an air-conditioned bench rest is hard work!

amannamedjed, stock PSA rifle with 20” Larue Stealth barrel, Larue MBT, UTG 4-16x44, Harris bipod, sock beans, IMI 77gr SMK OTM razor core: 0.9740”, 0.9130”, 0.9485”, 0.9380”, 1.0605” = 4.8340 / 5 = 0.9234 MoA.

Group 5:  Bottom right, 1.286 at widest.  -.308 = .978"

5 group average:  .694".  Average group size .663 MOA

Well, there's nobody at the top of the list that needs to worry about me knocking them down in rankings.

Unless I did my math wrong, I made the MOAAD list .  I used the original AR15.com 1MAD diamond target but since all I had was green paper for the printer, I put .750" orange stickers over the diamonds to make them stand out better.

All 5 rd groups





This was NOT as easy as I thought it would be.  I usually shoot steel at 600 yds, and it's not terribly difficult.....but I'm only shooting for center mass hits rather than groups.  This is the first time I ever tried for multiple 100 yd groups like this.  I shot 20 rounds to warm up, then shot all 25 rounds in one setting.  Total time on this target was under 20 minutes, and I think it shows how quickly I became fatigued..

ETA:  well, poop.  I didn't follow the rules.  I neglected to take a pic of my target downrange and of my rifle set up on the bench.  I don't have a qualifying target......this time.

Rifle is a factory 24" FN SPR-A1 chambered in .308.  Scope is a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP, MIL/MIL in Warne rings.  Load was 41.5gr Varget, Lake City LR brass, Win LR primers and 168gr Hornady BTHPM with a 2.810" COAL.  All shots were fired from a seated position, using the bipod and a 6"x4" cylindrical squeeze bag.

This is the same setup I used on my 9/13/2018 submission and can replace that listing (currently at #76, I think).

SPR Division.  amannamedjed, stock PSA rifle with 20” Larue Stealth barrel, Larue MBT, UTG 4-16x44, Harris bipod, sock beans, IMI 77gr SMK OTM razor core: 0.9100”, 0.8355”, 0.7520”, 1.0465”, 0.7920” = 4.3360 / 5 = 0.8672 in / 1.047 = 0.8283 MoA.

My entry for the bolt division at 100 yards.

Ruger American 6.5 Creedmoor in a Magpul stock.

Nightforce NXS 5.5-22

Hornady American Gunner 140 gr. BTHP

Range



Scored target



Best group



Setup



Bolt division, 100 yards, RobertL, Ruger American, 6.5 Creedmoor, 5.5-22 Nightforce NXS, Hornady American Gunner 140gr BTHP

1.251 + .542 + .681 + 1.322 + 1.054 = 4.85/5 = .97 average = .926 MOA.

I didn’t think it was too bad for a cheap rifle shooting cheap ammo with an old blind man pulling the trigger.
