I had switched some barrels around on several of my AR's and needed to zero this one today. I pulled a 200 yard zero from the prone with a rear bag and the target bellow was my last 3 shots. .566 at 200 yards, a guy couldn't ask for more from a 16" carbine and factory Hornady 123gr A-Max ammo!
This group was shot with a 16" BHW .264 LBC barrel, 8 twist, rifle length gas, Hammer Flare contour.
The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.
Make no mistake, I am what they made me.
Bullets matter far more than headstamps, placement trumps charts.

Yesterday I tried a handload through it using the Nosler 123 Custom Competition bullets. Didn't shoot it over a chrony but I could tell the factory Hornady A-Max's were faster and flatter than this load. This group was shot from the bench with switchy winds and more mirage than I care for. A comfortable 103 degree day.
123gr Nosler CC 28gr 8208 XBR CCI 450 Alexander Cases 2.245
200 yards , this load printed 5" low at 200 with a 100 yard zero. Just shy of half MOA.
