View Full Version : For those that think the SU16 can't shoot......

Just got back from the range. I put a cheap simmons 4X scope just after I shot 50 rounds. Here is what she did:

15/16th of an inch (

15/16th of an inch 2 (

Gun was nice and hot and the wind was blowing 15mph. Temp was a nice 70*. I made a number of different reloads but it liked 55gr V-max with 24gr of h335. The others grouped just under 2 inches.

Nice shooting there. I know my SU16CA has that potential from shooting S&B with an Eotech. I'm sure with hand loads and a good scope it would shoot way better.

Nice http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif shooting! Too bad I couldn't make it. My best groups were with 40 Nosler, go figure.

If that is from 100yrds its some good shooting. From 50yrds with a powered scope I'll pass http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif. BUT! If it was free hand shooting thats nice http://www.calguns.net/bow.gif.
I think all that matters is you enjoy your gun.

yeah 100 yards using sandbags in the front. I still have not had one FTF either shooting a number of brands of ammo and my reloads with different powder measures. Light loads to heavy loads it always goes bang. I'm very happy with it and my shooting buddies think its a hoot to shoot. Kinda like when we all fired a glock for the first time. Plastic just feels funny on a gun.

Pretty damn impressive shooting. Not bad for a $500 rifle.

How is that even possible, I mean it's not a "real" gun! http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://www.calguns.net/laughroll.gif

Good shootin' man, the best I've managed is just under 1.25" with XM193, I really must try-out some of the Blackhills Match stuff I bought the other day.

Ted say it isn't so! Consession?

Sorry, I want to make sure I read this right, these targets were shot at 100 yards, right?
