AR 15 Build in progress
« on: October 16, 2019, 10:07:54 PM »
Hopefully this wont take too long, I thought I had collected all my parts then realized I have no upper parts kit.

Ballistic Advantage 22 fluted stainless barrel
Aero Precision receivers

More details when I post the completed rifle

Cool. I'm also slowly collecting parts to build an AR. Please post pictures as you get it together.

I had higher expectations given that I used better than entry level parts. It grouped Hornady 88 gr ELD-M better than Federal 75 gr FMJ, but not much better. Im working on it. Also hope to see improvements when I handload my cartridges.

Once you get handloading...  That's when the magic happens with this caliber.  Mine loves the 80gr ELD.
