I agree with you both; it is an exercise in futility; however, I continue to participate to put my stance on record. I would love to see the USA I grew up in return. Sometimes there is the glean of hope.
However, as you said^^^^
"It wouldn't last. Just for the simple fact that people in general are driven by power and greed. They have turned away from the core beliefs this country was founded on and they have turned their backs on God. Without him, nothing is possible. This has been a huge problem many years prior to these events. "
They must make them for their own rifles or something, this was a limited run as I understand it. They still have some, seems nice but I don't know anything about ARs.
Melonite finish, it was like $97 total I was going to probably go with a Badger Ordnance to begin with before I saw this.
In this case, these speeds confirm the results that I have obtained by firing at 900, 800, 700 m.
This is 4 more shots, pretty same conditions than yesterday, so I have decided to stop since this ammunition is not good to get first shot hits past 500m, but I still can use them to foul the bore.
AVG 2878 fps
HI 2917 fps

10 yards rapid fire.
Getting past the flinching and am able to call shots when the trigger breaks.
Center mass hold.
POI still about 3" high.
A few thousand more ought to program the neural pathways.
Then move on to the draw and shoot from concealment.
My wife is into the essential oils as well. There's been more than one occasion where they have worked for me as well. I couldn't sleep when I was offshore so she packed a diffuser in my bag with several different oils and I can say, that they do work...great write up!
You should pitch a better website to them, theirs is crap😜. I had to watch a third party youtube video just to get an understanding of how the unit worked, but it does look like it has some nice features to it.
I new on this forum so I'll have to try and figure how to do the pictures. I'm strictly speculating about the pause before and after rotation, my machine only pauses for an extremely short period of time as well.
Finally able to shoot the load workup I did for the 53 flat base SMK. Shot 25.0 to 26.4 grains of H4895 in .2 increments. I used 1x fired and FL resized range brass for this which on retrospect was a mistake as some of those flyers were not me.The orange dot above were 3 @ 25.3 and 2@ 25.2 for sighters. Will load some @ 25.3 for the next range excursion which looks to be on the 27th. Shot some 80s at steel (14) and shot 4 shots of .308. Another pierced Winchester LR primer! Going to throw them all out.
The data for the .223:
#41 CCI SRP
LC85 (not nato brass) 1x fired, FL sized Forster die
10 shots today. I removed the angled piece on my buttstock to test out a theory that it's causing some of my vertical movement.
And it indeed made a change, crosshairs were all below my target after the shot today. It also reminded me how much I dislike shooting with a flat bottom buttstock as all adjustments had to be done with the bipod or rear bag pressure.
They also still moved left, I tried playing with some cheek pressure but couldn't get anything repeatable there.
This was a small sampling of 10 randomly picked cases from a 250 case lot.
I was happy to see the improvement over the new case numbers.
One case, #6 had to be eliminated due to a dent sustained on the upper case/shoulder junction and neck when it was ejected.
All cases were under .001 runout on the case shoulders with most around .00025- .0005.
As to the neck runout, #6 and #8 cases were the only 2 over .0015....#6 had the dent and # 8 was only very slightly over. 7 of the 10 came right in +/_ .001 ; #8 showed the most improvement going from .007 to slightly over .0015.
All showed improved runout numbers over new unfired, some substantially.
The only thing that I am leery of is the case weight, these average 6 grains heavier than LC16 although old batches of Lapua .223 came in even heavier.
Next is doing a load up for a reduced 100 yard load with H4895.
After live fire report...works great! As some may know I have usually run scope, rifle combo as canted rifle, level scope. With this plate and the rest of the adjustability of the XLR stock I can adjust the scope and rifle as level level. The cant and cast off plates allow me to properly shoulder the rifle without inducing cant and position the bore closer to the center of my body. The result is no canted rifle and a much more natural cheek weld.
