    Accuracy International 223 conversion working

    guys, thanks for you patience, ive got R2 on my rifle and working, trying to get the bolt close as smooth as a factory AI 308 bolt. Lots of stuff going on with the closing cams, etc and the different geometry in place with the 223 head. Its 95% right now, got mine shooting sub 1" @400Y

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    I started by cleaning the barrel very thoroughly when I got I think back, soaked to remove carbon, etc , then brushed it vigorously It does currently copper foul more than a newer barrel, so I patch, brush, then soak overnight with a copper solvent- I've been soaking with boretech eliminator

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    The 110 sierra load will no longer meet the accuracy requirements, so I’m burning them for barricade practice. I’ve switched to the 105 Scenar load to monitor accuracy. Cleaned all my mufflers today and re-zeroed. 5 shots at 100y with the scenar is looking good. Shot (4) three shot groups at...

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    First of all, let me say this: I don't compete at a high level. When I'm shooting at a match I'm on vacation- if its raining or otherwise shitty, Im going home. So if I don't come in the top 10 that's not a loss or disappointment for me. -I agree that watching velocity can be a good...

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    First I should say that my approach to load development has been viewed by some as unorthodox. I dont do much seating depth adjustments, rarely shoot over a chronograph, and basically never fiddle with my load to keep it in tune once the load is established. I dont track speed for a few...

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    as of today 6/1/21 I have 3520 rounds through this barrel. I was about 80-90 rounds in since cleaning and shot some groups on steel at 400y. Im measuring groups on steel in increments of .100" since it can be tough to resolve exact point of impact. todays (5) three shot groups with 110 Sierra...

    Bartlein BB steel barrel, wearing one out...

    I started by shooting some 105 Hybrid and 115 DTAC loads I am running through my current match rifle. Moved on to load development with the 110 Sierra and 105 Scenar. The 110 has been a mediocre at best bullet for me, and I had a little less than a 500 count on the shelf. I figured if I could...

    Accuracy International 223 conversion working

    The feeding is challenging with thnstd .785 dia bolt. Not saying the MC is impossible, but it may take an engineering feat to pull that off. Plus there's the magazine issue, I doubt the 223 will work in an AI of any kind with anything other than a center feed mag
