    Decided to run 15 shots per target, started with a cold barrel. 100 yards, 80 degrees, 60% humidity, 5mph cross wind from right. Cold barrel on left, hot on the right. Cheap Federal American Eagle 55 grain ammo and 8 inch targets.

    This is from my custom built AR that I put together for accuracy. 3-9x40 scope, used my range bag to rest front hand on. No bench rest!

    I am amazed at the accuracy I can get with that cheap federal ammo. My handloads will put 5-6 in the same hole basically then the barrel heat starts to string the pattern a bit. I need to load up 500 of those again so I have them for prairie dogs. 55 grain v-max over CFE-223 is a super accurate load!

    I have had very good results from cheap tula also in my AR. I have been sticking with the 55gr HP'S as I can't use FMJ at the local ranges. I have the 1/8 twist.

    That's because you probably don't taste good and would be hard to clean. :)
