Needs work, my self and most of my co-workers do that from 200yards with open sights.

Dallas news reports Tony Romo tried to commit suicide last night!

Fortunately he dropped the gun and the bullet was intercepted!

I will keep an open mind.

What was the rate of fire and is this standing, bench rested, prone, seated or what?

Roughly 50 rounds in a 5" square if firing standing unsupported square to the target and a rate of fire just faster than a round a minute with open sights.

I won't criticize. You won't win any Camp Perry matches but hey the bad guy will get the point.

Get better ammo. Your groups will thank you. Federal Lakecity M193 is a good accurate round or any of the cheap remington stuff.

Looks good to me man. I wouldnt waste good ammo on paper anyway. Well id waste some to get everything sighted in. Other than that blast away the cheap shit.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

I can shoot a decent group at 100 yards with wolf, but yes it's your ammo that's causing you the trouble.

Too bad the 5.56 will bounce off of sheet metal at 500 meters...

that's ridiculous, it has about 600-750fts lbs of energy.

I got some land in the country, you walk out 500 yards and tell me how it feels.

That's funny.

The 5.56mm/.223 is deadly at that range. I have a Threat Level IIIA vest and I still wouldn't want to get hit at 500 meters with an AR.


To the OP, that isn't bad for a novice standing off-hand. I'm not totally convinced it's the ammo. Wolf gets a bad rap, but I've never had issues with it's cycling or accuracy.

This isn't exactly the same target, but this is what we have to shoot every 3 months for "refresher" to carry a carbine and it's a tad bit bigger than the one we use.

It's placed at the 25 yard line, and we have to shoot 3 rounds into the black. That doesn't seem hard, but put that little MF-er out 25 yards, use that shitty SRTA ammo, and realize that we have the night sight front post which is twice as wide as a normal front sight post. It will more than cover that little target at 25 yards. I sight the target in the middle of the front sight and half way up. We're only given 10 rounds, and I've never taken more than 4 to qualify. 4 times out of 5 I've only needed the first 3 rounds.
