    Hey Sgt Raven
    Not real sure if there is a big difference between m16, used in the 80', and now, but we qualified at Parris Island, and later requalify in the Fleet, at 200, 300, 500 yards, hard basic issue sights. I cant see that far anymore without scope. PI Qual 248/250, Fleet, 238/250, and 241/250 (scores out of 250 perfect. So is there really a real difference from M16, out of the armory, basic Rifle, 1981, 18982, 1983?
    Today I shoot my M1A, 350 yards at golf balls. Yes with scope, and yes on the bench. We also shoot paper, but hook, slice, and straight calls are fun.
    I'm new to the forum, so looked this up out of curiosity.

    Yes we did.

    I am a Parris Island Marine, 1833 AmTrac, 1st MarDiv, 3rd AAV. I qualified 248/250 at recruit training. Yes I was Honor Marine, and I wasn't the Scribe. Since it was the 80's, and we shot M16A1, I was amazed at the previous comments. Granted I can't shoot that far without scope, even silhouette at 500, but love my M1A at 300 yards. We play golf. Golf ball, call it, Hook, Slice or Pop up. I don't really have any long range, 350 plus, so really can't reach out and touch with my AR15. Semper Fi Brother

    A lot of it will have to do with your ammo. I have heard some good reports up to as far out as a 1000 with 77gr match ammo and reloads. But your standard 55gr ball ammo isnt going to be capable of achieving accuracy much past 500. Obviously you will want to take your rifle into consideration

    If your barrel is 1/7 I would give 62 and 68 gr a try. IMO that's your best shot at getting 1000yards out of a 5.56x45

    This sounds about right.

    It depends on caliber and load. I'vw seen an "SPR" with 16" barrel shooting M193 ring 12"metal at 802 yards. Ringing about 50% of his shots. I'd say plan on 600 yards consistently. My dope has me going trans-sonic at 700 yards but I haven't gone out past 300 and at that range I'm hitting torso siloutes with irons all day long.

    It is interesting that a nine year old thread picked up with better dope. Did ballistic programs in 2008 account for "shooting angle?" As a point of reference I noticed a difference between the Standard and the 4DOF models.
