LoL. I'm game.

If we have another club get-together that I can make it to, I'll be more than happy to let people try either. I love sharing my toys.

Its funny, but after owning things like these for awhile... especially the NFA stuff... the novelty has worn off. I actually get my enjoyment out of bringing new shooters to the range and watching them have a great time.

Well... I give up. I moved this scope to my SIG 516 and just like every other scope... I can't get this scope to hold zero anymore. And this is the 5.56. Not even the 7.62.

With iron sights or my EOTech I can shoot a solid 3 minute group at 100 yards all day. I move up to 15x magnification and I'm lucky if the rifle puts a 6 MOA group on paper at 100 yards. The worst group I had today was 5 shots spread across 10 MOA of paper

I have spent over $6,000 on hardware and damn near 2 years trying to get an AR to run out past 200 yards reliably and have made no progress whatsoever. I don't know if its the scopes actually failing or if its my eyes with the astigmatism... but I'm done.
