    I'm not "digging" my new LE6960 as much as I expected.

    Nothing wrong with the rifle, but I thought I it would be a superior experience shooting it. The Colt is noticable lighter the MP, and recoils a little more. I transfered the Trijicon RMO from the MP to the Colt and I'm not quite as accurate. However, I am using 55gr reloads that work very well in the MP. I'm going to take the Colt tomorrow morning with a box of Hornady 55gr V-max ammo that I have and see if I can shoot better. I'll probably hold off on the coffee until get back home. If interested here's a link to the MP. https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearm...lat-dark-earth

    The problems we talk about in lesser weapons don't always manifest in 1 range trip. They actually may never manifest. But, when the chips are down that 6920 will work.
    You can bet that colt was built right.

    You don't buy a 6920 for comfort. You buy it for predictability of performance.

    The 6920 has a carbine gas system which is going to be a harsher cycle of a mud length or rifle gas system..
    I'm not sure which gas system the M&P uses.

    I'm confused what you don't like about the rifle?

    Only thing I would change about the 6920 is throwing in a sprinco white.

    This is the mid gas system Colt 6960 not 6920. The MP is a carbine gas system. I not saying I'm disappointed in my purchase, I just had my expectations up, that would be a lot nicer then shooting the MP.

    What size groups is the Colt shooting and at what distance?

    55g V-Max will shoot well in any good rifle or carbine.

    Usually over 1.25" at 50 yards and sometimes less than 3/4". I can keep the MP with the same ammo much tighter. I might have been the biggest factor. The groups were still much tighter than my groups at 25 yards during basic training. Anyway I'm taking it out this morning with a more visible target, factory Hornady ammo, no coffee and see if I can do better this trip.

    Guys with M&P15s overwhelmingly report that they shoot well.

    A handload that works well with one rifle is in no way guaranteed to work well in any other. You may get better results with 55 grain V-Max.

    If you want to give legitimate accuracy information, you should try FGGM, Black Hills, and other match ammo, and at least 7x magnification.
