bench. For me, if off hand, it would definitely be a lot wider. My typical habit is usually bench or prone, but maybe I should practice more off hand.

yes, you should

and get some better ammo

doesn't hurt to mix it up and you'll look more "tactical"

Darn good shooting @ 50. Center mass bro, that's what counts when its go time. Thanks for the range report.

Not bad for a red dot and non match ammo. However, I must ask, why are you not using a scope on an OBR? Isn't that more of a precision type rig?

Rifle looks beautiful.

Looks great for 3x power. I think you're too hard on yourself. :D

how do you like the rail system?

I initially seriously considered throwing a scope on it to use as a tack driver. But, finally decided to set it up as a CQB, fast target acquisition rig instead and keeping it as light as possible, because I already have a couple of other scoped rigs.

I see I see. Then why didn't you opt for the PredatAR? I'm just curious. Either way its a kick *** rifle, I would love to have a .308 OBR.

I am paranoid(better to be safe than the sorry type), so I got the Magpul storage core for the Magpul MOE grip with some critical parts

http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/pp61/ifubad/Misc/LarueOBR556spareparts.jpg

For those of you who has not used the storage core yet(which I found out afterward), here are some quirks that you should know before hand. At least with the Magpul MOE grip, you'll have to carefully file the small triangular locking tab of the storage core by a couple of mm in-order for it to snap and lock into place, otherwise, there is too much material that it will NOT lock at all. The spare bolt will sit in the slot very loose, rattling around, either stick an earplug into the grip or drill a hole and stick a spare cam pin into it. The spare firing pin does not lock in the so called slot tight and will come out of it and probably fall out of the grip over time from recoil, so use a correct size O-ring. I also drilled a couple of holes to keep a couple of spare firing pin retainers.

Cool grip core setup.

Good shooting! You're zeroed just fine now and wouldnt expect much more accuracy out of that ammo and optic combination. Is your AP dot a clear circle under magnification?

Nice rifle and that really is a cool core setup for the retaining pins!

Great looking setup, and excellent job on the core. :thumbsup:

Yep, that's pretty much a common occurrence, as well as mine, with the AP + magnifier combo. I saw a comet so it could be tough to figure out which was the exact center of the dot. It makes zeroing difficult so you did great, given that it's not easy to zero that combo.

It's actually pretty good . you have to remember that you're shooting a sub moa gun, with a two moa dot, and non match ammo. there is only so much accuracy potential you can see with that set up.

congrats !

Agree, looks great all things considered. A scope will tighten it up but you are nearly 1 MOA already so why add the complexity. I like your setup, QD means you can have both ;)

I think you are being to hard on yourself.

You are limited by 3 things. Your hardware must be capable. (rifle and optic) Your shooter must be capable. Your ammo must be capable.

You are limited by your ammo. Its probably 2 moa (approx) ammo. You are limited by your hardware. Your optic, 2 moa.

Put 2-7x or 3-9x glass with fine crosshairs on if you are going for groups at 100 yards. Get 69 gr match, 77 smks, big long and heavy.

Practice a bit with the cheaper 55 gr. Use the .50 or .75 a round a shot stuff for when you really wanna show off :D

I'd be happy with 2-3" groups when using non match ammo.

keep practicing. on a bench you should be able to do much better with a rig like that. if we are talking about bench rest thats good for an AK.

Good shooting, not bad for a 1st time out. I love these Internet sub moa shooters. And no you dinks couldn't do better! Love that rig, keep shooting! Enjoy.
