What's his name? Larry? I watch MAC from time to time and generally approve of the content. All the gunnies should keep half an eye on this channel. Larry regularly gets in supreme chit because he is flat out honest in his reviews. If he has a negative experience with a gun, he vlogs about it and presents it with no thought spared for the manufacturer's feelings. He ticks off a lot of fanboys off too when he does that. I look at him more as an industry watchdog than anything else - although he has started dabbling in antiques and curios which is always a treat. Here, he raises some questions about the SCAR rifles. I have no experience with them but I have heard conflicting reports about them - some from the squaddies who got into the brown stuff with them. I am reserving my own opinion for now.
I have never had much luck with gas guns. My M1A will go sub-MOA from time to time but generally it turns in groups around 1.2" at 100m. My AR15 was the same even with the match barrel trigger and barrel. But the guys on the M14 forum and at ARF.com will show off their guns being all out tack drivers. Who knows how that works. I wish I did.
It's important to keep things in perspective though: at 1.5" MOA... at 800 yards that translates into 12" groups. That is well within 'minute of raghead', at the very edge of the .308's performance curve. In military terms, if you do your part - you'll hit what your aiming at.
If you are going to have this discussion, I say it is best done in front of a campfire, with good men, a fine drink, and a fine cigar.
Have a great Tuesday!
