I used to have a Bushmaster Ar in .223, and seeing some of my friends own other AR platform rifles, I've noticed that most of them can only shoot 2-3 MOA from a production gun out of 20" barrels.
this leads me to as the question that "shouldn't we as consumers be demanding a little better quality for the price tag?" if you're going to spend $1200+ on a rifle, IMO it should shoot at least 1 MOA. and that's just for starters.
I know there's custom setups out there that do much better, but it seems like they should be able to do much better. I sold mine because i couldn't even hit a coyote at 250 yards even though i fired half a dozen shots at it.
anybody else experience this too? and were you able to do anything about it?
