    Apologies in advance for some of the crappy cell phone pics.

    I finally dragged my M14 EBR out to see if I could get it to shoot reliably. The last time I had this rifle out was in December of 2016 and it wasn't functioning properly. Brass wasn't ejecting properly so I had my buddy Roy take a look at it. The shells were getting caught on the nut of the keeper screw of the scope rings. I've since switched out the rings and scope and made sure the nut was on the opposite side this time (opposite of ejection port side).

    I had a Bushnell Tactical 5-15x40mm on there, and though it was a good, reliable scope with pretty clear glass, having he parallax adjustment on the objective always irked me. I had a Leupold VX-R Patrol 3-9x40mm SFP left over from another build so I threw it on the rifle. The Leupold's TMR reticle on the Patrol is a lot fatter than the fine version on the Mark 4, so I'm not sure I'm going to keep it on this rifle. For ammo, I was shooting 155gr Hornady Steel Match.







    I went with a few buddies to the Abbotsford Fish and Game Club this past weekend. I think most of us have grown tired of the Port Coquitlam District Hunting and Fishing Club (PCDHFC) as it's gotten pretty crowded, and at times, a bit fuddy.



    The Abby range had no wait time, plenty of lanes, and it was self governed. It was a nice clean range and I would definitely like to go back.







    There were plenty of benches to shoot off of, but there was also ample room to lay down right beside your bench to shoot prone



    I really wanted to see if it was just the scope ring issue that was causing previous malfunctions. I know that my buddy Roy had diagnosed that as the issue, but I wanted to make sure. I had a couple of cheap 7.62 rounds left in the magazine and decided to send a few for a rough zero, but a few of them actually failed to eject properly.

    Crap....so, I got out the 155gr Hornady Steel Match and my worries disappeared. After I got a rough rough zero on a rock at about 75m, I decide to zero the rifle at the 100m target. I shot a 5 round group that looked fairly respectable and went to my rifle sized targets.





    I probably should have measured this one, but it looks like it's about 2" and change?





    I must have been drunk when I circled a 6 round group and a 4 round group.

    Anyway, the best group I could manage with the Leupold VX-R was 1.7" at 100m. Maybe I could have done better with more magnification and a finer reticle, maybe not. I've read a lot of frustrating first hand accounts of people trying to squeeze accuracy out of these things. Rack grade M14s came with no accuracy guarantees, and from what I've read match grade M14s can come with a guarantee to produce 2" groups at 100 yards.

    There are accounts where some people have poured large amounts of money into these things (not even Norinco) in their "Ultimate Builds" to which produced 1" to 1 1/4" groups. Some custom builds have been known to produce 1" or less, but I don't think I'm going to chase that unicorn.

    “The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.”
