    I purchased a Ruger Precision Rifle in 556/223 about 18 months ago (i.e. before they discontinued it in that caliber). It has a 1:7 twist rate. Have been to the range with it six times and shot at 100 yards. My primary objective during all those visits was to test various brands and grain weights of ammo, most of which were match grade ammo(think $1-1.25 per round), to see what performed best. Then I could focus my purchases on just those. (Btw, I regard myself as a novice precision shooter. However I did stay in a Holiday Inn, lol.) Shot from a bench with a bi-pod in front and a mono-pod in rear of rifle. I compiled the results into a spreadsheet, and fortunately a pattern did emerge. As expected 70 and higher grain weights performed best. Not sure if these results will apply equally to a semi-auto AR with 1:7 twist. Perhaps barrel length may also matter. The results are shown in the screenshot below. Those in Red are all over 1 MOA. Thus off my shopping list. Notice they were generally the lighter grain weights. The two standouts are the SigSauer #E223M1 and Hornady #80267 which averaged 0.678 and 0.784 respectively. The Hornady is a bit less expensive at .75 per round. whereas the Sig is $1/round. For me, rows 2 thru 6 are now my "go to" rounds when shopping for precision ammo for my RPR. There is still a place for the cheaper 55 grain stuff. E.g. for warming up, shooting steel plates at 100 yards, etc. So will usually also have some of that on had.

    Tony13, My first thought is that the weld material covering the pin should be aluminum since the comp is aluminum. A drill should be able to get through that, but you run the risk of breaking the drill bit off when it gets through the aluminum and encounters the pin. I'd try operating on the weld with a Dremel tool or a jeweler's file to get to the pin. Remove enough material to expose the full diameter of the pin. Hopefully it's a roll pin and not a solid pin, right? And it's likely in a blind hole. And it's likely made of spring steel. Trying to screw a tap or screw into the pin usually doesn't work. Pack as much grease into the pin as you can. Or, maybe drops of oil if you have zero luck with the grease. Find a pin punch that's a close fit to the inside diameter of the pin, put it into the center of the pin and deliver a sharp smack to the grease or oil. The hydraulic pressure will force the pin out. I've done this with bushings in blind holes before and this is like a miniature version of that process. DON'T FORGET TO PUT YOUR EYE PRO ON FIRST! -Longranger

    Sucks that this happened. Know plenty of people with various issues with their new GM vehicles and they didn't have much luck from the company. Definitely try anyway, but I think it would help if a lot more people followed through with complaining to a consumer reporting agency. My dad bought nothing but GM vehicles his whole life before he finally gave in to the Toyota in 2008 and then a Honda a year after. Both cars still run great. Meanwhile my wife's Chevy that was also purchased in 2008 needed new struts at 70k miles. F that. good luck.

    Want a factory load that's heavier than 55gr m193 clones but not too pricey? Sales on IMI 77gr razorcore are about the best bang for the buck. I think I have seen it as low as $0.55 per round if you bought enough. I've been loading hornady 62gr bthp bullets with decent results and works well in 3 gun out to 400 yards. After 400 yards, I'm not sure as I need to get better at that bit. Not a lot of opportunity to practice. You can get a load that is pretty close to my velocities in the form of frontier 62gr bthp at about $0.45 a round. They also have a frontier 62gr jsp available. Apparently they added 75gr bthp and 68 gr bthp loads. the 68s are a good bullet and are a couple bucks more per 500 round case than the 62. Hornady steel match 75gr bthp is also avaiable for ~$0.45 a round. Me I just buy the 62 heads cheap and load them for about $0.23 a round. If money is no object, or at least $1 a round type of money isn't. There are a LOT of options for more accurate factory .223/5.56 ammo.

    We use American Eagle 62 gr FMJ as training ammo. It’s accurate enough for us and is pretty inexpensive. 64gr FED TRU soft nose is our duty ammo.

    I listen to the Joe Rogan podcast a lot, and that’s the opposite of what he says. But maybe because he’s training at a different level.
