Rock River Varmint

Just joined a new range. Frontline Defense in Warrenton, NC. I took my RRA varmint AR in 556. After getting an average velocity for my ammo, I went to the 200-500 line. Planned for 10 shots for each range. At 200 yards there is a steel plate. 10 shots looked like a small group, but the plate was well shot. At 300 yards another small group. At 400 the target had much cleaner paint. Fired another small group that I finished off with a couple of headshots. When I went for 500 yards I fired a 10 shot group that looked to be sub-moa. I decided to go for head shots with the last 10 shots. 10 head shots with no vertical dispersion. The horizontal spread was 4 to 5 inches.
The day was in the 40's with periods of rain sleet. The rain/sleet was falling at about a 45 degree angle. The wind was steady. First time using the Applied Ballistics app on my phone. Dials were pretty much spot on. I thought that this was pretty good for an AR, but it has been a sub-moa rifle from the beginning. Hopefully I will qualify for the 1000 yard range soon. It starts at 300 and I would like to take the AR to 700 or 800 yards and I have another AR in 308 for going further. Great facility. Still working out load for 308.

I bought the RRA predator pursuit several years ago. Back than it had a 3/4" moa guarantee. Mine did .680 5 shot groups at 200 yards with factory Hornaday superformance 75 grain bullets. Does better now that I use 23.5 grains of RL15 powder with 75 grains BTHP bullets. This rifle is a laser.

My RRA A4 I got NIB back in March of 2006 has been a great shooter for now over 12 years. With thousands of rds through it, it's still sub-MOA with my 68grn handloads. With a 12x scope, I use it to shoot medium sized apples at 400+ yds.
