  1. The FBI already has looked into it, before the DA took up the case and found nothing the feds could charge him with.
  2. different schools on this. Army does 25 meters I think the Marines do 33. I do 25 for irons or a dot because it is what I am used to. Also at that range you can get a very inexpensive set of binoculars and see those hits. Check your sight manufactures instructions but most of them are in the area of 1 click is 1/4 inch at 25 yards. Done shoot once and make a adjustment. Get a good 3 round group, no bigger than a nickel then make an adjustment off the center of the group. Remember you are going to chase the group with the front site and run away from it with the rear. If the group is low move the front site down if the group is to the right move the rear to the left. Concentrate on making the groups tight, then just move the group where you want it to be on paper.
  3. There are a lot of things that could be an issue of combination of other than the barrel. Ammo make, type, weight and so forth. The military says that the M4 will hit a man sized target at 500 yards, I can tell you that most of the soldiers I know cant do that, that is why we only qualify out to 300. The Marines take is a bit more seriously and put way more time into it, and the results show. In the Army we zero iron sights at 25 meters and consistency is 3 shots covered by your thumb. My standard was always covering it with a dime. Also most iron sights are set up for click is about 1/4 inch at 25 yards. That’s one inch at 100 of course so if you were making adjustments thinking that 4 clicks will bring you up one inch it will throw it up a bit more than that. I have an AR that will shoot a clover leaf hole at 100 yards with a 24x optic with the right ammo when I am having a good day, and most days are not that good. If you are running irons or a dot I would come back in to 25 yards and work a zero from there.
  4. 100 yards is pretty much the standard for zeroing magnified optics on 95% of the rifles so your good to go on that. I certainly would not zero a normal 556 or even a 308 out past that. There are a lot of good spotting scopes out there but, I am not aware of any that are in the sub $100 range new. What you are going to run into is glass quality and clarity at that price point. If you are looking at getting clear view of basically 1/4 holes 100 yards away you are better off raising your budget. I would also say that if you are only doing this for zeroing, I would save the money and put in the steps. Now if this is going to expand into hunting or long range shooting then I would definitely look into making more of an investment depending on what your goal is. I currently have 2 spotting scopes that I use for long range shooting but never go to zero a rifle without them because it is a secondary mission for the equipment. One is a very large and heavy 20-60 and the other is a 15-45. The 15-45 has a mil scale reticle so not only is it powerful enough to see my impacts at 100 yards, I can use the scale in the reticle to make very quick and accurate adjustments. At longer ranges and can use the reticle for windage and elevation adjustment for 2nd shot hits. I have done this out well past 1500 yards just spotting the round impact and trace. I am actually looking into a 3rd scope that is more of a hand held monocular but can be mounted on a tripod. It also has a ranging reticle but is more for light weight scouting but I am sure it will come in handy for zeroing larger rounds like 30 cal. Just an opinion. What ever you decide on put a good deal of though into a solid tripod. Even with better glass wind can easily mess up a good picture and a solid tripod will make for a much less frustrating time at the range.
  5. best things on my RL550, is the DAA powder adjustment knob. Actuall click adjustments. I also now have the DAA case feeder. The jury is out on that one. When it works its pretty awesome, when there is a snag it can be painful.
  6. This not what the story you linked says. It just says the 9 that were cited for trespassing will have charges dropped.
  7. I hope so, I had not heard any follow up other than the occupants were pulled out at gunpoint after getting away. This is why I run front and rear dash cams in my truck and there is a little button on the rear view mirror that will connect me with 911 and record the audio of the whole thing. Notice this always happens in places were folks get arrested for self protection. They won come down here and do shat like this. It costs too much to ship the bodies back home for burial.
  8. I would say you are fine as the weapon is not designed to be fired when folded. It even says so on my LAW Tactical folding adapter.
  9. The worst part is that when the police caught up with the Prius, they did a felony stop on the driver who was trying to escape a bad situation. Had it been me, as soon as the black truck cut me off and we came to s top they would have been catching 124 grain JHPs through the windshield.
  10. You dont drop attempted murder of a police officer if you have what it takes to make it stick. He also left open the option to bring them again? Well where are they? There are independent witnesses that claim the police announced and yet the boyfriend still hasn't had the charges re-instated.
  11. There are certain parts of the build you can do before you get the stamp. There is actually a kit where you get everything and have all of the components, and once you get the stamp, you drill the baffles and screw them all together. By doing it yourself rather than a transfer you save about 10 months of waiting.
  12. So he signs an EO for 15-25 years from now and seems to think it is going to make any difference. What a fool. Not sure who is more foolish though, him or the fools that elected him.
  13. FOX is splashing suspect in custody in the shootings.
  14. It was enough to have a grand jury drop the charges in 2 minutes.
