That's exactly why it was "adopted" by the Army as the M110 Service Rifle and accepted by the NRA. AMU and their .223 Matty Mattel was getting beat by the .30 cal "wooden rifles" M1, Mk2-1 and M14/M1A at long range with the Service Rifle. I watched Grant Singley blow the middle of the target out in the Interservice 1000 yard match a few years ago.

I'm not sure anyone has made any serious attempts, or had any serious success shooting XTC with it. The .223 still rules there.

Resp'y,

I understand. But, this thread was started regarding the AR 10 for CMP competitions which, for this, are all xtc. I was just trying to mention that I do not see a point it using them in a leg.

The AR10 is a great prone rifle, just great.

If a M14 type or M1 can go across the course the AR10 should as well. Someone will start and win then maybe some others will try. Hear tell some are scoring very well with the 155 SIE Palma bullet.

Considering the considerably higher cost, it's going to take a lot of wins. You don't exactly see that many M1s and M14s on the line or used by the winners anymore.

Regardless, it isn't going to be legal for EIC if no one asks for it (it probably still won't, but...).

It comes down to where the support hand has to be for offhand. That's the issue. The M1 and the M14/M1a are much, much better for offhand than the AR10. Offhand with one is just awful.
