Since I started using a clip-on thermal I decided to get a monolithic upper. Got it finished this morning and then headed to the range. It is a Mega Arms MTS, 13" AR Performance 6.8 SOCOM(had it cut down from a 16"), Superbolt and NIB carrier. I am using hand loaded 95r TTSX. It took only 4 rounds to get it zero'd at 50 yards. The picture is the next 5 rounds at that distance. Measured .375". Gotta love them ARP's!!

The 6.8 is the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs in an AR15

Need to work on trigger squeeze and breathing that group could be tighter lol.

Great looking rifle and it's obviously a shooter.

Very nice! I have a 12.5" barrel on my sbr and those barrels are some shooters. I been shooting the factory federal xm 6.8 and it shoots nice consistent little groups. Im getting 2680 on my chrono on the 90 grain load.

I still have one of the old viper barrels made in Switzerland or Sweden, cant remember which. 8" barrel would shoot MOA with 62 grn FMJ. It sure would not shoot a group like that though.
