Let me preface by saying, my SN# BL040xx with the rounded gas regulator and titanium firing pin, YHM Phantom Muzzle Brake.

so yesterday was my first time using my acr, i've used ar15's before but never owned a rifle. i paired it up with a Trijicon TA31RCO-M4CP and shot a few 10 round mags to see where it landed on paper. the first 30 or so rounds were American Eagle Value Pack .223 55gr. Flawless, no FTF, no FTE.

the POI was slightly low, but with good grouping. keep in mind as well, that i was standing and using a bipod. i think if i sat down and used the same set up, groupings would be tighter. so next off, i threw in American Tactical 5.56 62gr rounds, made in Turkey. i shot about 20 rounds or so and again, no FTF or FTE. over all, both rounds performed without issues.

im pleased with the day, shot around 70 rounds in the ACR without any issues. I took it home and opened it up, cleaned out the gun, looking for where the most carbon build up was, and it was mostly on the gas regulator. lubed it back up and now ready for another adventure... when, idk. it's going to have to be outdoor and at least 100yrds for me to consistently see it's grouping.

had a fun time shooting the ACR along with my Sig P229R. check out the vid, sorry the camera tries to auto focus and it doesn't know what to focus on so it appears to pulsate, gave me a headache watching it :eek:

Looks fun. Id like to shoot at an indoor range. Do you have your optics zeroed for a different distance? What are you shooting indoors? 25 yardsish? 100 is always a good distance.

Thanks for sharing, a day at the range is usually a good day.

How did you like that stuff made in Turkey?

to be honest, im new to shooting. i only shot 20 rds of the american tactical 5.56. the purpose was to see if it would misfire/feed. i have seen reports on youtube of FTF/FTE with 5.56, whether or not it's a few select cases, i just wanted to test it out, very roughly and not precise-science on my end.

the local gun store i purchased it from, had Federal M855 5.56 cantainer (420rds), 30 pk of american tactical 5.56 which i bought and american eagle value pack 5.56 of 100rds. i opted for the lowest count, as a test. next time i go out and test it again, i'll make a better post.

I've got countless 5.56 I hope the acr eats without an issue. Can't use it in my dmps target rifle. Just don't want to risk an issue. I got the acr because I wanted a 5.56 . This stuff is winchester I think from back in 2001. About $5 a box. And it doesn't seem like garbage stuff. I looked at the powder. Don't know what type it is but it looks like a mix of ball and longer grain stuff.
