    Great thing about this hobby. You can do a clone or use it as a starting point and do your own touches.

    Plus it's good to have variety

    Damn, that's a very nice looking rifle! What's the rail? Looks great.

    So it was so nice here yesterday, in the low 80s, I just had to go shoot. I was excited to try out some handload I'd loaded. These are my first go at loading my own ammo and I'll have to admit that while I took my time and was very attentive to the whole process, each and every step, I was still extremely nervous. As you will see in the pics all went well, very well. I still have all of my appendages and am uninjured.

    I had loaded up quite a few different loading using the few different bullets and powders I had but only took some 69gr tipped match Kings and 77gr OTM over Accurate 2520 and 8208xbr. Distance was a measured 100 yards

    All of these are 5 shot groups. Measured with calipers center to center and none over 1". My best was with 23.9grains of Accurate 2520 and the 77gr Seirra Match King @ .384" then a .401" with the 69gr tipped SMK over 22.9 gr of 2520 followed by a 77gr SMK over 22.8 grains of 8208xbr @ .487".
    Needless to say I was shocked by the difference afforded by precisely loaded ammunition and obviously the absolutely amazing potential of Monty LeClairs mk12 barrel, that thing can flat out shoot and I can wait to see what else it has in it. It can certainly shoot better than I can.
    And yes that .487" group that looks like only 3 shots is a 5 shot group.

    I have also added another component that to me makes it look more Mk12ish, the A2 fixed stock with a Sprinco green spring and a Vltor buffer which came from the A5 system that was on it. It cycled perfectly through about 100 rounds Saturday. I personally love how it looks now.1523854467430951454311.jpg1523854632383921045241.jpg1523854690913846117661.jpg

    Thank you. It's an Aero precision rail in Magpul fld. I bought the lower in that color and that's the only one that matched but so far it works like it's supposed to. I am going to do a wright up on mine soon I am trying to get out to the cmp range in Alabama so I can try it at 600 yards then do my review. Yours looks like it is shooting great.
