.300 AAC Blackout Range Session

Note: This was a short function zero session. BenL has a much more scholarly work in rifle forum for accuracy.

Friday 5/20 @ AAFG

Zeroed for 50 yards

The Rifle:

VLTOR VIS mid
Noveske 10" SS barrel
VLTOR VC-1 FH (will change to AAC 51T)
Magpul BUIS
PRI Gas buster (intended to mostly shoot suppressed when SDN-6 gets here)
Noveske sbr lower
geisselle SSA trigger
norgon ambi catch
tango down BG-16 FDE
Magpul mil spec CTR FDE
VLTOR buffer tube
H2 buffer
KNS pins
Aimpoint T-1 riding larue mount
magpul pmags in 20

The objective:

See if the damn thing worked and zero with T-1 for 50 yards

Ammo:

220gr remmy subsonic factory
120ish grain .300 whisper loaded by Mike at Midcounty to test supersonic function.


I zeroed it at 50 yards with the "mike load" first. Recoil was pleasant more of a push but still quite AR like. No sled or vise just from the bench i managed a 3 shot group that was like a 1" equilateral triangle. Not bad as I wasn't concentrating a lot. I was glad to confirm that the .300 whisper works in the AAC.

I then printed the unsupressed subsonic stuff. Same size groups but 1.5 - 2 inches low at 50 yards.

Overall i'm happy. The gun will likely run with the SDN-6 in place most of the time. If remmy would get off their dead asses and get some supersonic ammo out there I'd be a lot happier. Rsilvers is telling everyone "it's coming" but I feel like a jew waiting for Christ.

Yes. As stated above - Christ may arrive before the supersonic stuff. Rsilvers is an ammo tease.

Oh, you mean low-cost ammo. That is coming. The tooling has been ordered. It just takes time for it to be made.

Got to the range Monday. Canuck, I started a thread and you can see there what the rifle you fired did. It was more of a fun day, so I didn't set at the bench trying to get supper groups. It is an impressive rifle I think.
