OK, not so new now. This is a Bushmaster Predator that I have since mounted a Burris Signature Select 3-12x44 on. I broke it in with 55gr FMG Remington stuf and was very dissapointed with the patterns. Now worries, I loaded some 60gr VMAX's over Varget and shot a .416" group the first time out.


Last Thursday I, and four friends, were able to shoot digger squirrels for a full day with one of our mods. Awesome day! Somewhere in the range of 2,000 rounds went down range including 230 out of the Predator. This gun is very easy to shoot accurately. It will be even easier after I remove the cant and move the scope forward. If you have not shot a target version of the AR-15 you owe it to your self. Sub 1/2 moa is the standard with many well below that.

I have been away for a while due to life, aka twins:VC: , but will slowly start regaining some of my former self over the next few years.

Very nice gun. ARs typically shoot better with heavier bullets especially if the twist is faster than 1:12. I believe the predator twist is 1:8. Also there IS a diffference between caliber 5.56 and .223
