I will soon be getting a 1/7 bushy gov't profile upper. What sort of accuracy (M855 and 73 gr. Black Hills) can I expect? I've heard that the barrel's harmonics are awful, but I just thought I'd ask. Thanx.

Best I've gotten out of mine is around 1.5 MoA using iron sights and XM193 at 100 yards in prone position.

.25" with mine, but I built it.

Mine does sub MOA but it's a 1x9 twist.

I did some testing with my Colt once with Black hills blue 52 grain Bthp's and got similar results as Maverick. about 1.5 moa or a hair better. It's all abou the ammo. If you find the right one that it likes, I'm sure it'll do pretty well.

Furthermore, I think people that dis 20" barrels, saying they can't be accurate, are probably just justifying their carbines.

Dont have any group sizes but I can bounce a 20 oz Coke bottle around at 100yds with no problem

Do you think there'll be a noticeable difference from my 1/9 HBAR? I get around .75 MOA with both M855 and the Black Hills.

I think people who think 20 inch barrels can't be accurate doesn't have the first clue about firearms and how they work.

Once again, accuracy has nothing to do with barrel length unless you are using iron sites (longer site radius the better the accuracy)

My Colt shoots about 2 MOA with M193; it isn't too uncommon to shoot better than that with it. If you're shooting military ball ammo with it with irons, you can probably expect it to shoot better than you do. Some rifles sometimes don't group well with a few of the various weights of other ammo like Black Hills.
