Stretching things until they break.
So – once you have your rifle sorted – meaning zeroed with some confirmed drop data – it’s time to find out what needs to be improved – both in the firearms system and your own shooting.
You can spend all day shooting at a piece of paper, trying to get the smallest group and still not really learn much, apart from how statistics are a hell of a drug. Instead, can I suggest you start introducing some stressors that shake out where things can be improved and what you need to do to improve them.
So – my new build (thanks Greg, Custom Guns) with the Proof Research Barrel. It’s zeroed and shooting well. What do I need to tweak?
The point of the video…
Because, I am sure, someone will miss it.
This is not ‘running a stage’. I intentionally wanted to see what would go wrong, then stop. Correct, run it again. It is intended to be a stress test, not a stage run.
The magazine loaded around the wrong way – not sure – first time I have done that. Probably me in a rush to reset.
The feeding issues – that’s the mag. I have either dropped it sometime recently and slightly crushed the feed lips in – so it doesn’t present the round high enough. That is most likely the issue – as by my understanding – the case for the .308 (what it was) and 6 Creedmoor (what it is now) is exactly the same.
