  1. Glock 20 10mmAuto, G29 for carry along with a G27 during summer. The 10mm is capable of getting bounced up to some unreal numbers. The loads I use, at SAAMI spec, are near 700 lb/ft of energy for the G20.
  2. I think that Joint Ops, Typhoon Rising tried. I have it and bullet drop is there. Not sure how accurate it is. Drop does become more pronounced as range increases. Bullet drift, left to right with wind, is not in place. And as stated above, I was not aware GR did anything with ballistics other than some terminal energy calculations based upon simple numbers. My statements were real world.
  3. Bullet drop actually starts much sooner that 600 yards. There are several variables to take into consideration. 1) Range at which the rifle has it's zero. Most snipers are not going to zero (dead center bull) at 100 yards. They will do so between 300 and 600 yards, meaning the bullet will be high at all ranges prior to that. Substantially higher. 2) Bullet drop is determined by a combination of bullet wieght, length (thus sectional density) diameter and Ballistic Coefficient (BC, or the ability of a particular design to beat conditions such as wind.) Here is a sample chart for t
  4. At most GR ranges, bullet drop would be fairly small with just about any caliber. Besides, most true snipers zero their scopes at further ranges. They are not doing it for 100 yard shots, like you would find most often with Law Enforcement/SWAT types. Most snipers that I've talked to zero their weapons between 300 and 600 yards. This would mean that any shot taken at less than that would have the bullet impacting high, not low. If they want to get serious in GR2 (I hope they do), they should have a firing range that allows for the zero to be achieved before actual combat conditions exist.
  5. Projectile, Yep, magazine looks perfect. The images I sent you a while back are with 20 rounders, which allow the shooter to go prone and flush with the ground much more readily that a 30 rounder. The optics that are mounted on the rifle are a bit more high powered. It either wears a Leupold 6.5x20 power 50mm mildot or a Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24 power 40mm mildot. It usually has the 4200 on it, which gathers light as well as the Leupold. Optics mount will be an Armalite 1 piece. I just sent Projectile images of the collapsed Harris bipod today.
  6. Chems, I did my playing around in 1000 yard competition. For the most part, we had two camps. The lighter and fast as heck crowd (6.5x284, etc.) and the not quite as fast but heavy crowd (300 Winchester Magnum, 300 Weatherby, 7mm Remington, etc.) I've always been in the second camp for one reason; consistancy. On a calm day, it is very hard to beat the fast as heck cartridges. They get down range very quickly and honestly are not as prone to human error because of it. The problem is, there are very few calm days. Wind conditions almost always exist at some point during the bullet
  7. I've heard of them coming in a few lengths but yes, always shorter than the stock SR25. Chems, just posted my 2 cents worth in the thread you mentioned. Nice to talk to you again Projectile, Do you want the bipod mounted or stand alone? Either way is fine
  8. Yes, it can. I've seen rifles shoot one third MOA on $500 Savage rifles and custom Shilen Match barrels shoot so - so. It's luck of the draw sometimes, with the high end custom barrel makers getting it right the vast majority of the time. You can still get a bad one from a good maker, but it's not common. The SR25 used two main barrel makers. Mike Rock and Boots Obermeyer. Obermeyer collaborated with Remington to make the current Mod 11 barrel. Both rifles are 5R configuration. In large part, they use the same type of manufacturing process for both the SR25 and Mod11. I'd get
  9. The SR25 and Mod 11 (SR25 Mod 11 M0) are effecively the same weapon. One is a rifle only (SR25) and the other a full weapons system based around slightly modified SR25. Barrel length, RAS, etc. The Mod 11 is available to civilians in the US but I don't think I'd pay twice the price for a weapon that buys me nothing. Accuracy will be identical for all practical purposes. The only thing I would like to see is a schematic for the Mod 11 chamber. I have not been able to determine if they have changed chamber dimensions. If they opened up the throat a little, they may have solved any iss
  10. Nope, the AR15 and SR25 have one major difference, the cartridge used. This obviously makes the SR25 larger in all areas. One uses the 5.56, the SR25 the 7.62x51. Both were designed by the same man, Eugene Stoner. Reed Knight is a highly respected individual but he did indeed get the design from Stoner and the AR10. I've fired several hundred rounds out of SR25 Match rifles, which are essentially the Mod 11 that was built to meet a SpecOps requirement. They are pretty much the same rifle except for the trim thats attached and the normal Government contract markup. The SR25 is an accur
  11. The SPR is nothing but an AR15 with a RAS that fires heavy bullets. The 77 grain Sierra Matchking now has an NSN (National Stock Number) and is normally used in this rifle. The heavier bullet allows for slightly longer shots than the normal loadout and uses a far better bullet in the Sierra. It's still the same cartridge, just a somewhat heavier bullet. I've seen barrel lengths anywhere from 16 to 24 inches on them. 18 appears to be about standard. They can be made for civilians by the original equipment manufacturer. Cost is about $1600 without optics. I like a longer barrel. Helps
  12. Special Forces do use SR25 (Knights Armament) and AR10T (Limited numbers, but are in place.) Both of these rifles are 7.62x51 (308 Winchester.) The rifle that projectile has here is a 24" inch long barreled AR15 that is accurized. Probably the most accurate non-custom factory AR15 currently being produced. It is in caliber 5.56 (223 Remington.) The full name is the Bushmaster 24FV Varminter. It's been known to be used in law enforcement as a counter sniper rifle. The SR25/AR10 and AR15 have roots in the same family. The AR10 was first, followed by the AR15/18 and then the SR25. Th
  13. Glocks are actually full time double action. The striker is pulled half way back at all times. When the user pulls the trigger, the striker goes the remainder of the way back until the sear releases and fires the round. It's full time DA that feels like single action. If you add a 3.5 pound connector, the trigger on Glocks get pretty nice.
  14. If you can find one, which is hard to do in some areas, grab it. For under 200 bucks, you get a card that can be overclocked or even modified to 9700 power levels. The 9500 is nothing more than a 9700 with a few internal switches turned off. There was a "soft mod" a while back that could bump it up to 9700 specs. You may want to run over to rage3d.com to find out about it. For under 200 bucks, there is not a card around that can touch the 9500.
