The plan is to break in the barrel on Saturday morning with factory loads, check for function, set the gas block and then strap on some night vision for an evening hunt.

If all goes well I will have some video to share next week and then I'll start rolling my own handloads to dial in the accuracy.

Beautiful. Been waiting for these. Do you know if this upper would fit an AR10 lower?

So I shot a total of 30 rounds this weekend and downed a Sow.

No video due to operator error.

I had some jams where the case didn't extract fast enough so I opened up the gas port a little more, then when I got ready for the hunt I put 20 rounds in the mag and verified my 200 yard zero and it failed to feed the 19th round ( jammed it into the feed ramp - setting the bullet back into the case).

Once I cleared that, It cycled 8 rounds without issue.

So I'll need to break down the gun and oil it to my standards, open up the magazine and inspect the spring and then reinstall and verify function with 20 rounds again.

With the JAL muzzle break the recoil impulse is straight back so it's a pronounced felt recoil I'd say less than 30-06 but more than 308. Didn't bother the scope but the next day my shoulder could tell it had a day of fun previously.

I'll give this another run sometime in the next few monthe, I'm not super eager to hunt in late July or August...
