sbaker5 Posted August 31, 2015 Share Posted August 31, 2015 Okay, I need help from all you sharp, smart marksman out there. Sorry if this is wordy but I want to be as accurate as possible. I have three AR-15s that I primarily use. They are: a JP 18 with a Leupold Mark VX 1-6 multigun with AR gold trigger; a JP 16 with vortex razor HD Gen II with a AR gold trigger; and a 16 Daniel Defense with a Leupold Mark 6 1-6 and a Timney trigger. I have never zeroed any of these at a true 200 yard target, always approximated by utilizing a 50 yard zero. Well, this awesome range opened up near where I live, CMP of Talladega with an electronic target system with targets at 200, 300 and 600 yards. I shot my JP 16 first and a got a grouping of 29.9mm at 200 hundred, which 1.177 inches or 0.589 @ 100 yards (pic below for all rifles). I then shot my 18 JP with a grouping of 37.6mm @ 200 or 1.48 giving me 0.74 @ 100 yds. Now to the Daniel Defense. All these rifles are suppose to be MOA or better. Obviously the JPs performed great, especially since I have no idea what I am doing. But the best I could do with the DD was 255.4mm or 10.06 @ 200 yds or 5.03 @ 100 yds. I just dont get it. Is it possible the triggers could make that much of a difference? The JPs are approx. 2-2.5 lb pull and the timney is more like 3.5+ lb. I know it is a difficult question given all the possible variables but any advice or input would be appreciated. One more detail; all the rifles have approx 1000 rounds through them.
