Shawn over at looserounds has taken his M16A2 clone and Xm855 green tip ammo to 1000 yards on a man sized target.
“That is three rounds out of 10. Ten rounds of military grade, Lake City
green tip M855. Fired from a contract over run Colt M16A2 upper with
milspec trigger. Using a parade sling made from cotton. Three rounds
of what is the least thought of US issue military ammo made using
nothing more than a sling for support while laying prone and using iron
sights. I was very pleased. And I do not feel that three rounds out
of 10 on this size target with this rifle is a paltry accomplishment. I
have made better shots with much higher quality match guns, I have made
a 1 mile shot, but this is as pleasing to me as any of those other
That is some awesome shooting and a testament to anyone who might be on a budget who wants to learn to be a rifleman. We don’t need tricked out anything… what we do need is the mastery of the fundamentals with an accurate platform. Yesiree that box stock AR15 is an accurate platform.
