    AR-15 range report and what new match trigger?

    I recently built two AR-15s, and the one I have is set up as a short-medium range targetrifle.



    Following a 20 round break-in with Remington 55gr, I began with my handloads (69SMKs, Varget, BR4, and Lapua Brass). I immediately had this rifle down to SUB-MOA.

    Best 5-shot group of the day was at .75" (100 yards of course), I was very happy. I cut out the target to keep in my data files for the rifle.



    Now granted, I was REALLY happy with this performance as all shooting was the standard MilSpec trigger at about 6.5#. Compared to my SPR, the trigger was simply foul. So my question is, what's the word on match triggers? I've been looking about and so far I'm looking at the JP Trigger here...

    I'd really appreciate any other suggestions! Thanks guys.

    I've heard it's well worth the money to pick up a Timney or Jewell, but I haven't used one so I can't testify to that . . .

    Thanks for the feedback guys! JP still seems to be the front runner, yet I may investigate the RRA 2-stage a bit further. Only time knows where I'll end up. Cheers.
