    You'll enjoy that much more than the way it was. What sight is on your AR?

    It's an AimSHOT Compact Reflex Sight. Has an option for a green dot or a crosshair. 6 brightness settings. I like it, though the tinted projection glass makes low light even lower. The Gen 2 model is https://www.opticsplanet.com/aimshot-m3g-gen-ii-compact-reflex-sight.html

    How is that??

    You can't "over stabilize" a bullet.......while a long bullet won't stabilize in a slow twist barrel, a short bullet will stabilize and shoot fine from a fast twist barrel.

    https://sierrabulletsblog.com/2015/05/07/understanding-twist-bullet-stabilization/

    "Now, the biggest misconception is that if a shooter has a .223 with a 1-8″ twist, his rifle won’t stabilize a 55 gr. bullet or anything lighter. So let’s look at what is required. The longer a bullet is for its’ diameter, the faster the twist has to be to stabilize it. In the case of the .223 with a 1-8″ twist, this was designed to stabilize 80 gr. bullets in this diameter. In truth the opposite is true. A 1-8″ will spin a 55 gr. faster than what is required in order to stabilize that length of bullet. If you have a bullet with good concentricity in its jacket, over spinning it will not hurt its’ accuracy potential."
