View Full Version : AR-15 Target Rifle Upgrade

January 12, 2010, 07:48 PM
I want to buy a new upper receiver assembly for my AR. I want something with a lot of accuracy and range since I plan to mount a scope on it. What do you guys think? How far out do you guys think this can reach?

I have a very similar upper with a 22 inch barrel, and I have shot it numerous times at 1000 yards off a bipod with good results. Use the 75 or 80 grain Amax loaded to 2.45 oal and a stiff (but safe) load of RL15 or N540. It's a single load process, but you can probably shoot the magazine length 75/77 grain bullets out to 800 yards.

I would look for one with a 1-7 twist so as to better stabilize those long heavy bullets. The 1-8 will work, though.
With proper bullets and powders, you can expect fine accuracy out to 1000 yards.

A scope? I shoot my AR out to 600 yards with irons. ;)
