    Side pic of the 5.56(18) in current config ...



    This is one of my most accurate setups currently ... with the .300WM being the other ... both are "custom" builds ... just a bunch of parts ...

    The 5.56(18) is a larue (predar) barrel (1/8) and bolt in a BCM carrier with a colt upper with old style daniel defense rails. The lower is ut arms (made in KS) with timney 3lb trigger and magpul furniture ...

    The scope is burris xtr2 5-25x scr-mil on a riser ... with an atlas bipod and SPW556 on front.

    For the record I'm zeroed with 77gr TMK Black Hills load ... but strangely ... the Freedom munitions .223 55gr reman load seems to be a very close match in terms of external ballistics ... I'm using the .223 FM Reman 55gr because that is about 30 cents per round and is the cheapest I've got in 5.56 and I'm preparing for a "social" shoot ... but this FM .223 55gr is useful since it is matching the 110 cents per round 77gr TMK BH, at least out to 500yds. In -7F the 55gr was about 2 inches low ... and at 50F it is about 2 inches high .. but at 500yds ... that is still in the ball park.

    Counting scope and all parts shown on the rifle (including the ATF stamp) ... this is a $3,500 setup (not counting magazines and ammo). Not a super duper setup ... but surprisingly accurate.

    I consider this to be a training rifle ... but it is a useful one ...

    Note, I would not normally have the B5-25x scope on this rifle, but I am preparing for a competition shoot where this rifle will be the spotter's rifle (my rifle) for my buddy who will be shooting my .300WM with the 3-15x Burris xtr2 scr mil ... so I want to have the spotter scope mounted on the rifle ... we will both shoot in the competition and spot for each other. Distances in this competition run from 200yds out to 1400yds ... but most run between 200-500yds. The designated scope for this rifle is the Burris xtr2 1.5-8x CQ Mil ...

    1100-1300
    3 MPH SE
    40F

    Goal: 5.56(18) at 500yds with 55gr FM (Reman).

    Environment: Weather.com calls this "heavy fog" ... I call it "moderate mist". There is a lot of visible water in the air. It was actually raining from 0900-1030 ... but paused and so I kitted up and rolled out to the pasture on the 4-wheeler.

    Equipment: 5.56(18), 55gr FM (Reman), LRF, Kestrel. Burris XTR2, 5-25x SCR-MIL (set on 15). SPW556 on front. Atlas bipod. 2 x 20 rd PMAGS with 10rds each.

    Activity: As I rolled across the pond dam, I noted that the steel target was still standing (200yds away). Then rolled up to the 500yd FP and set up. Here is pic of from the 500yd FP.



    ==

    Fired 10 rds, got 7 hits ... not great ... but I did lower the tripod one notch during the firing to get a more level position.



    ==

    Repainted target and fired second 10 rd group. Got 10 hits, more like it.



    Summary/Results: The target was not super clearly visible through the mist, but I could see it. I was aiming a little low right due to a tiny bit of wind barely off my right shoulder and due to the 55gr hitting a little higher at this temp than the 77gr I'm zero stopped for at 500yds.
