    How did you get on with sighting the 223? Were you happy with the results?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Munseys main problem was only the comparative size of the holes to the gaps between said holes. There did seem to be a lot of white between them through the spotting scope, but when we actually got to the targets my 20mm wide thumb could nearly fit in the gap so we're looking at 1" groups. They did open up a bit after a few rounds but a rest and clean had them back down again.
