    I also did some groups at 100 yards using my KAC SR15 Mod 1 that has a Razor 1-6 on it. Again, temperature was around 38 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I zeroed this rifle using the MEN 56gr 5.56.

    American Eagle 75gr TMJ

    Speer 75gr Gold Dot (4 rounds are showing, I think I threw one high right off the target)

    Asym 77gr OTM

    CBC 62gr (my rifles across the board do not like this round)

    I also did some comparisons with Asym 55gr 223 reman, AE 55gr 223, and MEN 56gr 5.56. My rifle really likes the Asym 55gr and equally dislikes the AE 55gr.

    Anyone have more experience with this, especially at distance? Iím wondering if itíd be a waste of money to try this at 500m vs standard 55gr AE.

    I used it all season last year for competition. I took it out to 475 with a 1-4x on a 16” on steel chest plates. It worked well enough I’m not considering switching to OTMs.

Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Good to hear. This piques my curiosity.

    Interesting. Velocity seems quite a bit lower than standard M193 (not a surprise) so I wasnít sure if it work well, but I assume itís a little bit more accurate and consistent which makes up for that?

    Better groups than 55/62 AE. At least One was pretty close to an inch.
