Question for REPR owners

Postby mgrande » Thu Jul 09, 2015 9:19 pm

I posted this on MC as well but I suppose this may be the correct place to get feedback on the REPR.
My wife got me a VCOG for my 16" REPR recently and yesterday I finally went to the range to bzo it. I was shooting the Wal-Mart ZQI 147gr. I know I've seen that the REPR likes heavier ammo but I'm not sure how accurate it should be with the cheap stuff. Here's my target at 100 yards. I had shot several batches and made adjustments to get it on. I just couldn't get a group small enough to verify it is properly zeroed.

I was in a mild hurry so I wasn't expecting 1 MOA or even 2 MOA but I shouldn't have been that bad. I was prone using a bipod. Any thoughts? I have some 150gr( for 3 gun) and some 168gr that will be here tomorrow.

All I can say is that looks like my 300 yard rapid fire target with my scar 17. Most likely need to take your time and use proper breathing and trigger control. Can only expect to get out what you put in.

I think it's more of the rapid fire part, not the 6" at 300 yds

If your prone in a good position with proper recoil control, once your on target it doesn't take much to stay on there.

Yep, its the "rapid fire' at 300 yards I question.

umm yeah.. .we shot rapid fire (10 shots in 60 seconds) in the prone position at 300 yards with a reload (5 rounds in each magazine) in 6 - 8 groups without an optic, bipod, or any type of artificial support all the time back the in the 90s - it was called USMC rifle qualification

One shot every 7 seconds? Yea that's not even my definition of rapid fire. 3-4 seconds per shot is rapid to me, maybe even faster if shooting less total. I don't have a picture as I certainly wasn't impressed with it. Now I wish I did, apparently it was something special.

Mine looks kinda sloppy at 100 with 147 PMC. I just wrote it off as myself, maybe it is the 147 (plus me). I would love to shoot 6" @ 200.

I have a 16" REPR and experienced the same thing. 147-150 gr printed patterns, not groups. Federal 168 gr GMM resulted in nice tight groups.

Thanks guys, I'll get back to the range and shoot my new 175gr soon and will post up my results.

I've heard some complaints about ZQI ammo, no clue if the sources were credible, I have no experience with that brand.
I'll just sit here quietly and play with my new rail panels...........

I've ran the Zqi 5.56 62gr and found it to be pretty good. Consistent and reliable. I think I like it better than pmc bronze for a cheap bullet. I haven't tried the 308 though.

I'm with safari829. I've had my 16" repr for 2 yrs now. With 145-147gr PPU or lake city I get 2-4" groups out 100yds with acog. With Federal GMM 167 Sierra match king I got inside 1" this past weekend (after about 600 rds breakin) with Harris bipod. I use PPU for fun. But really need to use the HQ stuff to see how good it gets.
