    Nice job! I don't shoot Grendel or at Wilshire too often, but I do like their 100 yard range. Especially when you are trying to sight in a new option or when I am working up reloads

    5-3-20.jpg 1st 3 rounds of my hand loads. 123 gr sst over 27.1 grains of AR-comp.

    Going to see if upping the charge will get me closer to center with out loosing accuracy. Hate to change my zero after looking at what the American gunner is doing and when I was testing loads I had not let the barrel break in yet so hoping after seeing how much more accuracy I get with American now then when I first put this rifle together that changing the hand load charge will get me closer to where the American gunner is.
    Have never really chased the accuracy thing before other than minute of deer so I am enjoying this process.

    It definitely is fun. I was the same way, I started reloading and just mainly put together cheap plinking rounds. Then I got into long range 308 shooting and went through tons of ladder tests for charges as well as trying different weight bullets powders... it was fun to see how you could improve through small changes. I always set my zero based on Federal Gold Match and that was my benchmark to get my reloading to mirror.

    I would work on finding the accuracy node that is likely close to this load and adjust scope for it.
    Good shooting! Did you take a rest/bags or use one of theirs?

    I took a neice there before deer season so I could sight in a .243 with suppressor and let her shoot it some before deer hunting a few days later. I carried in a bag of sandbags to use as I wasn't sure what all they had.

    It is an AR so I have a bi-pod on the front and rest the pistol grip on a small sand bag I have.
