I busted off 200 of my 1880 rd stockpile that I accumulated over the month-long wait.
I did an IBZ. The 1st two rds were a little high/left but it hit well after that. 67 deg. 0 value wind.

96 yds. Mix of supported, off-hand and rapid fire:

It was better when Uncle Sugar paid for my weapons and ammo, but this isn't bad.

Nice looking rifle and good shooting.

I too miss Uncle Sam picking up the tab on my shooting habit.

Awesome rifle! I just ordered my RRA Car Elite A4. I cannot wait, especially after reading about yours.

It's a great rifle, very tight. I shot the 3 diff. brands of ammo out of USGI mags both 20 and 30 rds. I also shot out of some of those $10 mags from 44mag.com, not one prob. As u can see, that AE223 is good stuff.
I shot the 50 yd targets prone-supported from the back of my truck:

I shot the 100 yd (actually 96 yds) targets supported from the bench, if u call this support:http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b48/jsnappa/IMG_0335.jpg

All of this was at my hunt camp range. It's nice to have a range all to your self once in a while.

A damn decent size boar hog walked out at 30 yds while I was reloading. I don't think he knew how much he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, season went out on Sat. other wise I probably would have cleaned his wagon.

Nice rifle! I'm sitting on the same thing myself. It's beet very accurate, and a whole lot of fun. I got the same tactical carry handle that you have on yours. I put an Aimpoint on it and the setup is perfect! It raises the Aimpoint just high enough to be able to see over the front site, but not so high that it's uncomfortable to shoot or goofs up your cheek weld. If something goes wrong with the Aimpoint, the irons can be used instantly through the Aimpoint. To me it seems like the ideal solution for someone who is using an Aimpoint, though as I understand it, the Tactical Charging handle pretty much restricts you to an Aimpoint. Won't work with an ACOG or Holosite.

I too went with an IBZ, but I decided that I'm going to re-zero the irons to a standard Army/USMC zero. This way I will have the Advantages of the Aimpoint at closer ranges, but the advantages of the irons with the calibrated range settings with the rear elevation dial. Maybe I'm just screwed up, but I find that my groups are tighter with the Irons, so it makes sence for me to stick with them for the longer range shots.

Also, nice range setup!

Are those feed ramps cut into the anodizing?

does this mean they use m4 barrel extentions and standard receivers?

Yeah, they're cut into a regular receiver by a WECSOG graduate wielding a Dremel (TM) tool. By 'clean' I think he means they're not sloppily done for what they are -- some RRA 'ramps' have looked pretty bad.
