Today I shot my MVP Varmint at hanging steel targets set at 200yds and 300yds. The High Desert Rod and Gun Club's weather was excellent. Ambient temps 61 degrees at 8:05am and warming to 69 degrees by 9:00am. The wind was merciful. My best guess was a "gentle" frontal wind about 10mph. I loaded 10rds of the Korean (PMC) cat #223A in one magazine and 10rds of Federal XM193 in another. The rifle had already been zeroed at 25yds and I made an adjustment of .3 MILS which using Hornady's standard ballistic chart would theoretically zero the rifle at 200yds. The first 2 shots at the 20" plate missed wide. I held 1 MIL left of the crosshairs and that centered the hits. So I dialed the windage turret 1MIL right and fired again resulting in a satisfying center impact. I had counted the total number of clicks both in elevation and windage after I had zeroed the rifle at 25yds. I did not return the windage to zero. I fired the balance of that magazine and another with the Korean ammo at the 16" steel plate. The results were extremely pleasing. All were easy hits and centered. I do not have a camera with a lens capable of taking pictures at 200yds and beyond. In any event the RO will not permit shooters to advance any farther than the 100yds paper targets. Looking through my 12x scope I would estimate all hits were within a 5 inch circle. Then I fired the Federal ammo. After 5rds I could not differentiate the PMC from the Federal. The scope was elevated .7 MILS, the legs on the Harris bipod were extended a little and the rifle was now in position to fire on the 300yd 20" and 16" plates. Either the Hornady's standard ballistic charts are pretty accurate or I was lucky. The first shot at 300yds was as a tiny bit high of center. Moving the elevation turret .1 MIL down centered the bullets. I shot the both the PMC and Federal and again could not see any significant difference. The wind had subsided somewhat in velocity but still straight in my face. No additional windage adjustments were made. I fired a total of 12rds at 300yds missing only one. Again the group was small. I would say all hits were within 8 inches. This empirical data leads me to conclude that my experiment was successful. One can indeed buy a relative moderately priced rifle and scope and using inexpensive (non-match grade) ammo shoot long range with some success. The Mossberg MVP Varmint 5.56x45 with 24" medium heavy bbl. is a fun and easy rifle to shoot with no noticeable recoil. I is highly accurate, has excellent ergonomics and is now my favorite rifle. Be advised a good scope is a important. I hope to get a fellow rifleman to share a ride to Angeles Range and shoot 660 yards. I hope that happens soon.
