I’m currently building a clone correct MK12 Mod1 with the current 2.5-8 leupold MK4 optic.

I’m contemplating in my mind to use it in my area PRS matches. I do have other rifles much better suited for PRS, but I’m wondering if an 18” 5.56 would be competitive at all in a competition.

Thanks in advance for your time!

It would work fine for most gas gun only matches. A few people shoot them at one I attend. Distances typically 200-650 yards, occasionally further out to ~750. Is rare for target sizes to be 1 MOA or under.

I think it would be fun! I'd probably opt for something like a Leupold MK5 3-18, as the clone correct scope would likely be the weak link in the system (although then it wouldn't be clone correct).
