Our delightfully crappy West Coast spring weather cleared up long enough for us to make it to the range and really put in some quality time testing our new 7.62 NATO / .308 Winchester barrels. The results were outstanding, and we easily achieved sub-MOA results at both 105 and 219 yards. Why these weird distances? No idea. But whoever set up the range obviously wanted to make it just a wee bit more difficult than usual.
At 105 yards, Ben put together the winning group using Federal Gold Medal Match .308 ammunition tipped with 175 grain SMK bullets and measured 0.84″ (measuring the greatest distance between the centers of any two shots in the group).
At 219 yards, James nailed down the best group using Silver State Armory 7.62×51 ammunition tipped with 168 grain Sierra OTM bullets and measured 1.84″
