I finally got my socom 16 decked out how I wanted it and took it to the range to see what it was made of! My setup is a steel Sadlak scope mount, steel TPS low rings and a Leupold V-X2 1-4 scope. After taking the advice of many shooters on this blog I ordered a box of Hornady 155 gr. BTBP match ammo. The results I got were spectacular! I averaged a 1.5 mo a! And in my book being able to repeatedly hit an apple sized target at 100 yds with a battle rifle is dang good! I wanted to share this with yall to put to rest some spotty accuracy claims that I have read on this page as well as other websites. The Socom 16 is not going to preform like a tack driving deer rifle or sniper rifle. And with that being said it's important to understand that the short barreled, grab n' go socom 16 is made to kill Americas enemies from an average of 0-300 yds. Now that doesnt mean you can shoot effectivly at farther distances. It just means that it is not designed have sub MOA out of the box at 100yds.So for a ruff and tuff rifle that can withstand all the abuse of the elements with very little mantinence ( unlike most ARs), and give you good accuracy what's not to love! So to all you out there thinking of getting a 16 of your own, DO IT! You will not regret it!
