Here is a quick vid of me and a buddy shooting steel this last week.
My buddy is shooting an Rem 700 VTR sitting in a AICS stock
I'm shooting my GA Precision Crusader. Enjoy

Nice shooting.

What calibers? From the trail, it looked like the GAP was shooting flatter than the Remington; GAP looked to have more recoil as well, though that could just be from being a lighter rifle.

We were shooting .308. The GAP did shoot flatter. our elevation were different, the two inches of barrel length really does make a difference in speed. His VTR has cuts on the top to help with muzzle flip. but the GAP really doesnt had a hard recoil.

That's why we always press check. But no worries it happens to the best of us.

Hey now, in my defense that was a dry fire.



Great video kahai! That GAP is super nice. I really want one now.


Also the ammo we were shooting was the 7.62x51 FGMM 175g SMKs
. I chronoed it last week at 150fps faster that the .308 FGMM I normally shoot. (2630 vs 2495fps) Just an FYI for anyone else thinking of picking it up.

dieselgeek, that's really interesting, especially considering .308 is supposed to have higher pressures. I would have figured .308 would push the bullet harder/faster but chronos don't lie.

GAP has crusaders ready to ship I wish I had $3750 I could spend but I would have to put proper glass on it too so another 3k man one of these days I can't wait.

It always a good idea to practice dry firing because if you didn't intentionally mean to dry fire I know you would have done an admin check :D

I know, I was told these shot the same and had a dope built on the last 300 rounds I had shot of. 308. Kept having to adjust. When it happened I kept thinking it was me shooting high!
