Range report AE AR223

Cabelas had a sale on AE AR223 55gr FMJ for $ 6.99 per 20 loose boxed(AE223J). So I picked up 100 rounds- I was hoping it was the AE Tactical round but it wasn't! Never shot any of the AR223 so I figured I'd through it over the chrony and see how it would group. Group was shot at 50 yards as the wind was blowing so 100 yard group wouldn't be to hot! Especially with using just a redot! As a reloader not to impressed with the FC brass as usual it's SHORT! After sizing came in at 1.740" ish! Doesn't even make Min trim length! But if you want good plinking ammo this stuff is good! No FTE/FTF's

Firearm - PSA Strikefire Carbine 1:7",
16 " barrel Vortex redot.

Ammo: AE AR223, 55gr FMJ Lot# SMQ12F264-200
