Took my BHW barreled AR out this weekend after mounting a higher powered scope to help these 50+ year old eyes.

Also wanted to to try the shooting technique xOutxKastx suggested in another thread.

And this happened.

These are six shot groups at 100 yards. using Barnes 6mm 72 gr. HPFB bullets and IMR 8208XBR.

I'm still throwing the fourth or fifth round when shooting so I need more work.

The barrel is a BHW  6X45mm standard profile 18" mid length, 1:9 twist.

I have a 20" rifle length on order, from the summer sale  :) . look forward to putting that one together.

 

Thank you BHW for producing such a well made barrel.

It is nice to know as I hone my shooting technique, I won't be handicapped by the barrel.

M1A Socom 16; Its bark will blow minds, its bite is even worst! 

30 Herrett AR; I know 7.62X39 is cheaper... But I already had the 6.8 SPC brass and bolts.

Very nice. If you overlayed those groups you'd have nice round hole. Consistency is where it's at and you are getting that.

Thanks guys,

 

Zoiks, I think Greg means putting the 5 shot groupings over each other.

 

Special thanks to xOutxKastx for the shooting tip. Sorry, I forgot to thank you in the first post.

And Thanks to all of you that have helped me out in this Forum.

I'm glad I found this place.

 

Glenn

Yeah, figured I'd show you what it would look like had you fired all twelve at once. A short vertical track is easy to fix (shoot during your natural respiratory pause), it's the horizontal track (pushing or pulling the trigger) that's the hard one to overcome.

Very nice shooting Geepee.  I know the barrels are good, but the barrel alone didn't do that.  It was also the loose nut between the seat and the trigger.   :segrin:

 

Nice job.

Thank you Sir.

 

I should have mentioned the bottom target was with the new scope pre-adjusted and the top target after adjustment.

But you are right, I need to concentrate on my technique through the whole group to stop those pesky fliers.

Well in that case, it was clearly an unexpected shift in the rotation of the earth that caused the fliers... That's what I blame mine on.
