No, but I'm looking into buying an upper for an AR. Seems they are quite expensive. Alexander Arms, the creator, is especially expensive. Will be looking at a gun show this weekend plus at a MG shoot in April. Good ammo is supposed to shoot less than moa and what I' ve read is that it's best to shoot at 200-300 yards for testing accuracy as 100 yard groups may not reliably indicate how accurate a load might be at longer distances.

Me and my dad built 2 identical ar-15 rifles last year, 6.5 grendel. Love the round! Like you say 100 yards isnt good to check, you can put them in the same hole. We cant get them to group better than about 8 inch at 400 yards. We are playing with the reloads to fine tune them, not much info out yet on reloading that round.
