Re: Battle Optic Grouping

I've been looking and I can't seem to find the Fiocchi or the Hornady in stock anywhere.

Now you have enough data on what Factory ammo your AR likes. Stock some of the those.
Yup, the plan is the AE M193, Hornady 55gr SP and the Fiocchi 55gr PSP.

Re: Battle Optic Grouping

Rifle specs: Home made with a Faxon 16” Gov/SOCOM 1:8 Barrel is free floated and I can’t speak to proper crowning but given Faxon’s reputation I doubt they messed that up. Primary Arms 1-6 ACSS in a UTG Accu-Sync - all torqued to spec. I was skeptical about going with the UTG but I couldn’t find a s...

Re: Battle Optic Grouping

TAM, thanks for your very well put together reply. I went back out today, on my own, and was able to take my time. In all I spent four hours looking down the scope so now everything appears a hair fuzzy. lol I shot several different brands/loads of ammo and found three I felt were superior, a few th...

Re: Battle Optic Grouping

I run a primary arms 1-6 with the ACSS reticle. You want the tip of the chevron the be your aiming point. At 100 yards I was shooting 1” group with standard federal 5.56 55gr. In order your use that reticle to its full potential you need to zero at 100. Thats the same scope I have and 1" groups? sh...

Re: Battle Optic Grouping

Yeah, I figured minute of man would be acceptable with this reticle. It's just taking some getting used to. I was kind of rushed on my first trip out with it so I left the range feeling like I accomplished little to nothing other than getting on paper. I'll take my time tomorrow and hopefully have s...

Battle Optic Grouping

I recently picked up my first LPVO so not having traditional cross-hairs and shooting super tight groups is killing my OCD and using the tip of the chevron is definitely taking some getting used to. So, when zeroing an optic with a battle reticle, like the ACSS, what do you think is an acceptable 10...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

The optics definitely look bad but I'm extremely curious to see what the autopsy results say once they're published.

Re: Is this legal open carry?

Just curious here, but why open carry iwb? Personally I conceal 24/7, and have been known to carry iwb/owb. I felt that the purpose of an iwb holster, was to conceal the weapon better, at the expense of being generally more uncomfortable than an owb holster. I personally do it so I don't bang the g...

Re: Leather holsters

His lead times are kind of rough at the moment since his only does it in his spare time but I'm a really big fan of Eric's work. He's in Decatur so depending on where you're at you may be able to just pick it up from him. I had him make me one once for an oddball pistol and I have to say it was by f...

Re: Is this legal open carry?

This is also why they said a handgun in a holster laying on a car seat is not legal. It's not in a belt holster cause the holster is not attached to a belt. What if the holster on the car seat was attached to a belt, would it be legal then? You'd have to ask them. I will note that they stated this ...
