Holy Moly!
« on: May 16, 2017, 02:55:41 PM »

I expressed a desire out loud about shopping for an accurate AR 223/5.56 for its fast followup shots on coyotes and wing shooting crows and...... via the magic of the internet 18 RimFireCentral.com friends chipped in and surprised me with this. Un-freaking-believable! I am truly humbled by the magnitude of their generosity, and stealth. The wife was in on the surprise part for a month and a half.
Faxon flame fluted, air gauged, cryonized barrel

Leupold VX-R 4-12x40 Illum dot

After 40 rds of break-in including 3 cleanings I shot 3 rds of TAC-223 touching @ 60 yds on a fresh target. Happy happy happy!

That's awesome.  I would guess you have a lot of posts there and have helped others as well.

Roger that Al!

I'm on RFC also, but infrequently especially this time of year. I have a slight problem with CZ 452's and I guess that's where the rest of the folks with that same issue hang out.

That place can "make" you spend a lot of money! The "Ultimate 10/22" threads got me to build mine up.

Then I found AR15.com  roll() Of course our former Dear Leader, the greatest gun salesman of all time, helped a lot with that spending spree!

Congrats and have fun with your new blaster, Al. :thmb:
