Re: New upper build accuracy???

I'm not gonna change barrels just on looks. I want a heavier profile as well just didn't mention that. The only light weight profile barrel I have is on my remington 700 mountain rifle in 30.06. Everything else is a decently heavy profile. I thought I wanted a lightweight build at first but now I ch...

Re: New upper build accuracy???

I don't see how could shorten the lifespan when you're really only doing it to seat the barrel but correct me if I'm wrong...

Re: New upper build accuracy???

Just to update the problem was the ammo. I got some more 125 gr remington match and it stacked 4 rounds just about on top of each other again. My largest group was about 1.2 inches in a 5 shot group. I also shot it slower to make sure it wasn't heating up. My best group was .86 inches at 100 yards. ...

Re: Barnes 110 gr factory ammo poor accuracy

I shot an 8 round group measuring 2.1 inches at 75 yards with the same ammo as the op. The best 5 round group I got was 1.5 inches. By far the most inaccurate ammunition I've shot other than some cheap milsurp ammo through a 5.56. I tried hog hammer and could stack rounds in 3 shot groups but I woul...

Re: New upper build accuracy???

So basically my rifle is shooting normal sized groups? If I just did 3 round shots then it stacks them under an inch I had one 3 shot group that was under a half inch and a 4 round that was right at .75 but my 5 round and 8 round groups suck. My 50 yard tests are great but the 75 yard tests are wher...

Re: New upper build accuracy???

Geissle ssa. I just swapped uppers with my 5.56. It will do sub moa all day long. I do need to try my upper on the various other lowers I have. I saw somebody on here say that could affect accuracy.

Re: New upper build accuracy???

Thanks guys. Would y'all consider a different barrel if the accuracy doesn't improve or would y'all scrap the whole idea and move to a 6.8? If a different barrel then which one or should I get an entire upper? I know I'll probably get flak for this question but I'm building this for hunting only and...
