I finally got my upper and took it out its a 20 inch woa with a 1/8 twist about 15mph cross wind shooting 22.4 g of h335 pushing a 55 gr z-max I only had 10 rounds left so i did 2 5 shot groups 1 measures .31 and the 2nd one measures .35 AT 125 yards boy woa guns are amazing I have to give all the credit for the groups to the upper
I'm 19 and have no training what I know I learned from reading are there any pointers any one could pass down as far as becoming a better precision shooter?? I reload so i can tune the rounds to my gun I will be going back out next week to try some more load development. http://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/p530/jlehr25/IMAG0552.jpghttp://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/p530/jlehr25/IMAG0555.jpg

Great shooting, but I dont think its all the barrel. Try doing the same with M193.

I have a varmint 24" 1/8 twist SS barrel and my groups looks like yours when I use the right ammo. M193 gives me about a 1.5-2" group at 100 yards.

I just got some 52gr Hornady Match ill be trying out soon. Just curious is there a reason you picked H335 over H322? I started with H322 but want to try H335.

White Oak barrel + good ammo has always produced fantastic results in my experience. Nice groups.

I picked h335 Jus because it meters better than the h332 I also have some tac I'm going to try and will let you know how that works but I.have also tried h332 and i like it Jus doesn't meter as accurate always

When you went with White oak you seperated yourself from most of the AR,s as you have a very accurate rifle.W/o uppers can shoot with most bolts! I used to get beat bye a w/o alot in f/tr with my savage bolt .

i am realizing this when i shot those groups i was amazed. i was expecting 1/2 inch at best but man woa has made me a beleiver of theyre uppers i think its gonna be hard to find a better shooting gun at that price.

The 55 grain is a short range round .When you go longer you will find it not as easy!
