Crazy good barrel.... Did not expect this level of accuracy
I have a custom built Aero M5E1 I've been playing with for a few years. With any BA barrel I could really only squeeze about 2-3 MOA out of surplus ammo and 1.5-2 MOA out of match ammo at best. Was looking for something lighter for my hunts more than I was looking for an improvement in accuracy.
<br>I installed the zev barrel, not only did this shave almost a pound off the gun compared to a BA barrel, but my accuracy is insane now!
<br>147 gr m80 ball still ~2 MOA
<br>180 gr hunting loads ~1.5 MOA
<br>180 gr Berger ~1 MOA
<br>165 gr hunting loads ~ 1 MOA
<br>168 gr Freedom BTHP ~ 1.2-1.3 MOA
<br>168 Ruag - .4 MOA
<br>175 BTHP GGG - 3 shots in the same hole 3 times in a row........ (.2-.3 MOA) this will be the go to load! blown away by the accuracy and consistency. Repeated this grouping at 2 different range sessions now.
<br>Blown away... Wish they made an 18 or 20 inch version now since they're so light.
