M-16 Owners Test requested

If there are any 16 owners out there would it be possible to do a small test firing project for me?

What I'd like to know is if you fire a 5 round controled burst into a a target where do the bullets impact from your point of aim. How much climb do you have on the target. It would be interesting seeing this done firing from the shoulder and bipod.

Thanks,

Turk

From my own limited experience, variables impacting the results would be :

- type of muzzlebrake
- distance from target
- experience of shooter
- length of barrel

And what is meant by "controlled burst"?

I think when the data base had problems the other day is wiped out some posts. I noticed this in a couple of other threads.
