i am just curious to what range distance others have gotten with their ar's.

standard scope up to 10x
carbine length barrel
55 grain bullets .223
with 9 in bi-pod
---------------------------------

i was shooting last week at a range/gun club and i was hitting 10 for 10 @ 250yds according to rangefinder,club member said targets were once measured at 275yds but i am going by the rangefinder that someone had for a better truth beyond hearsay .


what is the best others have done?????

I've hit quite a lot of torso sized targets at 500 yards with a 20" barrel and iron sights, using M855.

:rofl2: That's one hell of a precision rifle...errr...pistol. I'm glad you didn't wound it and let it get away. I respect life. :p

Did you need to use a 3x magnifier for the Eotech?
