I like the handguard. What is it?

Also, your upper and lower seem to match well. Do you find that to be a problem with some brands.

That's a free float aluminum hand guard that came with the upper from J&T, color match usually isn't a problem, when you see an upper and lower that don't match, the majority of the time wiping down with an oiled rag will fix it, mismatch is often seen when one half has been oiled and the other half is dry. I bought a black terry cloth wash rag for wiping down the AR's, black lint instead of light color lint that sticks out!

Ive always wanted to build a rifle that would be a dedicated 3gun set up. After being deployed to Iraq, i thought 'hey why not now'. I had everything but the reciever and the barrel at my house waiting for me when i got home. Im currently setting up my reloading stuff to load .223. I have only shot Ultramax 55gr FMJ's from a bipod. I get accuracy good enough for local 3 gun matches. I want to make up some tack driver loads. I know the gun will shoot it, but can I? We will see.



Details:

-RRA matched upper/lower set

-JP trigger group

-Magpul MIAD grip and trigger guard

-ACE skeleton stock

-JP Medium weight 18" bbl w/ 1-9 twist and BC comp

-VTac handguard

-Simmions ProDiamond

-OKO as secondary optic

-Harris bipod w/ homemade flipper

-JP low mass carrier

Damn Jester, and I'm just tickled pink to shoot expert...but as we know...Army targets get up and run around :wink:. You don't seem old enough to of accomplished all that (judging from that pic of you with your fav cover garment on)! Good on you though!



Nice rifles everyone, especially that SPR build Nick!

What is the max distance that you guys shoot at? The only thing I could never get a possible on was the 300yard rapid. I'd qual expert off the 200 yard line, and If I really felt in a good mood that day, I'd help out some poor non shooter on another target that was barely making it.

LOL good on you for being generous like that... maybe if we get one of those Ft. Sill (flat stretches of field with targets placed within lanes, up here in the northeast ours are set in the woods) I'll do that and make some joe's day by letting him have expert. I wont help him qual though..he has to at least make it that far.



Our max range is 300m, but our targets all come up in pairs....here is an example of an Army qual range lay out:





I tried to use MS paint to put a red dot near each target...I cant seem to find 50m left though...







There are actually 7 different lanes, or avenues of approach, however you would like to describe them, all leading into the firing position where the soldier qualifying is located. These lanes branch out from the soldiers position in a fan shape. These 7 lanes have one target each within them, at distances of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 meters. The 50m and 100m targets are all "prone" targets, opposed to the "Ivan" silouttes most commonly seen. The targets pop up as pairs, and each target has a time value before it will fall back down (if shot before that time value is up the target drops). 50m is 3 seconds, the 300m is 10 seconds. Those are the only two off the top of my head. There is a firing table that explains the order in which they pop up and for how long they will remain exposed, but I'll be damned if I can find it. Think of it as random, unless you can remember a 40 round firing order. 50m left is the first target to come up if that helps!




It used to be 20 rounds from the firing position, then 20 rounds prone unsupported... but they changed it the year I went to Ft Benning. 20 rounds from the prone supported, 10 rounds from the prone unsupported, and 10 rounds from the kneeling.



Really, the kneeling is a much more pertinent firing position for todays conflicts...

Robb,



Sweet set up as usual! Is that a RAS?



When we going to get out shooting?



Harlan


Thanks. Yes that's a RAS2. I just went blastin' today at Quantico at Range 305. I was testing a new AK Concepts DNTC Comp. It works damn well.
