    So what kind of accuracy were you getting, and what optic were you running? What kind of reloads were you using? And how did the ejected brass look?

    And what is the total round count? Trying to help this thread by accumulating objective data...

    Got out the range finally. Shot the new complete upper I picked up on sale. It is an 18" mid-length, stainless barrel, nitride BCG, and MI Gen 2 SS15 rail, with A2 hider.

    Swapped the same Weaver Tactical 3-10x scope/mount I have the other 18" I have. Cleaned/lubed bolt and swabbed barrel prior to range. Ran 70 rounds through it. Majority were my bulk 155 gr reloads with mil brass, over CCI-200 and H4895. Also shot 20 rounds of Tula. Function was 100%. Accuracy was garbage with the Tula, but averaged in the 1.5-2.0" range. Best was a little under 1.5" for 5 shots. Acceptable in my mind.

    I also used Gen 2, Gen 3, and Gen 3 M118 PMAGS with no issues. Locked back 100%. This upper did produce some minor case head swipe on fired cases, but nothing that would preclude reloading.

    I remain pleased with my gamble on these, at least for a hobby piece.

    Got my ALG trigger in the lower, so more testing will be coming soon. Wanting to work up some hunting loads with the 165gr SST since they're inexpensive yet known to be very, very effective, so that should let me know a bit about what accuracy this will be capable of.

    This thing has me seriously craving hunting opportunities with it. I mean BADLY craving it, like I want to spend every possible day out and start stacking deer, coyotes, woodchucks, whatever. I've gone about a decade and a half almost never hunting at all, like maybe 6-8 days total in the last 5 years, and now want to fill albums of pictures with it doing its job because now this is the tool I actually want for it. It's so weird but that's how it is, I guess having spent the last decade or so wanting to shoot more so I get only stuff that's fun to shoot often instead of the 45-50 week dust collectors. Having gone from 6 weekends a year hunting and maybe 3 shooting targets from age 5 to 21 then to 20-30+ per year practice and competition and maybe 1 if I'm lucky hunting from age 32 to now, maybe it's just the constant condition of wanting what you have least of.
