Today I installed different scope mounts on my M1A 'Scout Squad' so I had to go sight it in. The scope is a 2X Burris handgun scope that I swiped off of my Ruger MkIII Hunter, a few months ago.
Once I got it on target, I decided to shoot a group off of the sandbags, and got the 3 inch group at 50 yards that I'm used to with that rifle.
Then I got a wild hair and decided to put my elbow in the sling while shooting off of the sandbags - and there was a dramatic difference. - The group was around one inch, with several of the bullet holes touching each other. There was some horizontal stringing, but vertically they were within 1/4" of each other.
I had no idea that using the sling could make such a difference. It was kind of shocking, but in a pleasant way.
Shooting the cheap Russian steel-cased stuff with the poly coating, too.
The place to discuss AR style or other tactical rifles.
