AR-MPR Phase II – Checking and Correcting Bullet Concentricity

If you are a precision shooter, you care about consistency for the cartridges that you shoot. One of the most important factors to measure and control when reloading match ammunition is bullet concentricity. Simply stated, this is the alignment of the case and bullet. If you have “good concentricity”, you will have the axis of […]

AR-MPR Phase II – Seating Bullets

In this video, we’ll use the Hornady OAL Gage measurements from our first Phase II loading video: AR-MPR: Phase II – Determining Max COL with OAL Gage and measure the dimensions of the cartridge and magazine to determine the optimal bullet seating depth for the bullet and rifle in question. We’ll then use the Redding […]

AR-MPR – OnTarget Software – Measure Groups Easily

For AR-MPR, I’m chasing a .5 – .75 MOA accuracy goal. Initially, I started with 3-shot groups when I function tested the rifle, but have upgraded the challenge to “consistent 5-shot groups at .5 – .75 MOA”. In order to track my progress, I’ve taken a hint from Paul over at http://accurateshooter.com – use the […]

AR-MPR: Phase II – Magpul PRS Stock and XTM Rail Panels Install

One of the important aspects of a precision rifle is the overall rigidity of the entire rifle – the action, barrel, stock, and other components – the entire unit must be solid in order to shoot with maximum precision. The AR-MPR rifle was initially put together with an M4-Style 6 position collapsible stock. This imposed […]

AR-MPR: Phase II – Charging Cases with the Redding 3-BR and Hornady Auto Charge

AR-MPR: Phase II – Rifle Accurizing Plans

I just read a great article written by Robert Whitley of www.6mmar.com fame that was posted on the  http://accurateshooter.com blog: What Makes an AR Accurate — Whitley Offers Answers Talk about good timing! This post helped me plan the first wave of accurizing activities for the AR-MPR rifle. My goal is to remove any factors […]

AR-MPR: Phase II – Sizing Depriming Priming .223 Remington

In this video we’ll start the precision loading process by lubing, sizing, depriming, and priming cases. We’ll walk through the features of the Redding Big Boss II, show how to lube .223 cases, validate sizing die setup, and then size/deprime/prime the cases. Next, we’ll cover charging the cases with the Redding 3-BR benchrest powder measure […]

AR-MPR: Phase II – Determining Max COL with OAL Gage

One of the important things to know before loading rifle ammunition is how far out (shallow) you can seat bullets, and what the optimized seating depth is for a particular bullet for your rifle and shooting application. For AR-MPR Phase II, we’re going for maximum accuracy, and also need to assure proper feed characteristics so […]
