This is their top of the line 223 with a heavy 24" barrel. I was wondering what kind of accuracy could I expect from this rifle eg; 100 yards, 200 out to 600 yards?
If anyone knows let me know.
Thanks, Terry

I would imagine with the proper optics, and the proper weight bullet it would out shoot the shooter.

I have one (ss barrel) and using the following ammo under a Springfield 6-20 Mil-dot I got the following: Black Hills 69 gr. Sierra Matchking Molly: .605"/5@100; 1.024"/5@200; 4.307"/5@500 BH 75 gr. Heavy Match Molly: 1.537"/5@100; 2.592"/5@200; didn't even bother at 500 BH 77 gr. Sierra Matchking Molly: .306"/5@100; .751"/5@200; 3.010"/5@500 I have been absolutely thrilled with the rifle and I have not had to do a single thing to it to tweak it. I broke the barrel in per Armalite's instructions with BH molly bullets. Once I shoot up the supply I have, I will quit shooting molly though and work up reloads using standard Matchking bullets, 77 gr. of course.
