Howdy folks. Some of you have asked about updates on this project, so here it is. My last post on this topic was many-a-moon ago, and I apologize. I'm afraid a lot of my time has been held hostage by a few different top-quality AR15s, an MP5 SBR project, a nice little CZ 452, and my Weber charcoal grill DI5 I trust the real gentlemen here would find these distractions truly forgivable GI1
For those who don't recall the original thread on the rifle, here it is...
...and here's the first round of accuracy results with reloaded ammo.
Since I've been spending so much time with other toys, I haven't had time to further my load development for this rifle, but I figured that since I have never tried Federal Gold Medal Match, that maybe a better idea would be to run some of it before continuing forward.
Well, the results of the VLTOR M1A DMR with Federal Gold Medal Match are in. The video is seen below. I only had two boxes of this ammo to shoot today, but nonetheless I think I can realistically call this rifle a 1.5 MOA shooter at this point.
Now, the question will be whether I should continue forward and unitize the gas system, get a trigger job, and bed the action. I guess there is no real answer to this question, since it seems with the M1A one starts to reach a point of diminishing returns sooner or later, and the tradeoffs become more apparent the deeper in we go...RNGR3
