So I received my Stag 6L Varminter from Chris at Lanworld last week, and spent about some quality time at the range on Saturday.

Specs on gun:

Caliber: 5.56 Nato Chamber
Upper: Forged and Mil Spec. Free Float Non-slip Aluminum Handguard. Low Profile Gas Block. 1/2 MOA
Trigger:2 stage Match with Hogue grip
Barrel: 24 " Stainless Steel Match Grade Bull Barrel
Magazine: 10 Round
Stock:A2 Stock

I put a Swift 4.5-14x scope on, loaded up the cleaning kit and went to the Cordova range.

I brought it within spec on the 25 yard range and broke in the barrel on milsurp, then when I moved to 100 yds, I loaded the black hills 68 gr JHP.

I am still a fairly new shooter, (22 yrs old) but this is the grouping I put downrange with 10 rounds. There are some stragglers, but I think the rifle is 100% capable of 1/2 MOA. Trigger was very nice....crisp and predictable. Helped more than I realized. When I went back to my Remington 700, it felt numb and blocky.

Next time I'm going to work at putting down more consistent groups, but this is a start.

Good shooting. It will get better with time.

This makes no sense and I suspect it is a mis-print.
Why in the sam hell would you shove a 5.56 reamer down a 24" stainless bull barrel? :confused:
