TacPro in Mingus is open again after a gas company closed them down for a few months to put a gas line across their property. I finally got to get my Creedmoor out and shoot at a 1000 yards. The furthest I have shot this gun was 500. I used the "I snipe" app and was surprised how spot on it was. It called for 9.67 Mils hold. My gun ended up using 9.6 Mils.



5 shot group

Another 5 shot group


I was happy with the results. Just gotta find the time to spend on the Range.

Is your gun a factory or custom?

Many a day have I spent on that range. 10 years ago tacpro was the only game in town.

Andrew Brady at Lonestar Armory is a good dude.


Well done.

Andrew has built several AR rifles for me. He is a great guy for sure. Here is a group that was shot with the sister rifle of mine. 750 yards! He builds awesome rifles for sure.

I'm surprised the rifle likes 140's. Seems like a lot of guys have problems blowing primers with even factory 140 grain ammo.
Most of them are running 123 and 130's.

Whatever you are doing seems to be working. Keep it up.


I'm jealous of that leupold by the way. If that sucker has the tmr reticle, then that is very close to perfection.

Capped windage, Low profile M5c2 turret, FFP, compact, and a good mag range.
What more could a guy ask for?

The factory ammo is hot in a gas gun. He uses the JP high pressure bolt,SLR adjustable gas block and different buffer and spring combos. I have occasional swipes but no blown primers or blow by. 140s is what he suggested using with H4350 powder. I did the load development and shared what I found.

And yes, the scope has the TMR reticle with illumination. It wasn't cheap, but it was cheaper than a S&B. Buy once, cry once!

This is a 12.5" 6.8 he build for me

Cull buck he shot off my place this year with a 308

I wasn't questioning your approach. I was just surpised is all. Obviously, you guys have it figured out!

Is there a place closer to Dallas than TacPro?
