Thoughts if this fits within the M110 classification listed in rule 4.1.6???
I certainly feel the AR10 is the way to go for the Long Range matches and agree Rootsy on the 185 grain Berger (or possibly a 155 grain pill)....it will still be a drag race to get it up to speed out of a 20" barrel, but it can be done.

For AR-Tactical, your rifle weight including scope, bipod and magazine should be less than 14 lbs. (shouldn't be an issue with your rifle), also the trigger needs to be at least 4.5# pull weight.

My son (Dylan) shot AR-Tactical Long Range at Camp Perry this past year with his .223 AR15 launching 80 SMK's.....he scored a best of 194-2x with the winds off Lake Erie being a real challenge at times. It required around 3.3 Mil's windage correction (120" @ 1000 yds) and a ton of elevation (10.2 mil's or 367" at 1000 yds).

For this year, we just put together a 20" AR10 in .243 Win to shoot AR-Tactical at the Long Ranges Matches.....just a heads-up on the weight, with a heavy barrel and 14x-44 scope the rifle came in at 13.7# with no weight added. So depending on how your gun is equipped, it may be pretty easy to get close the 14# weight limit.

Hope to see you at the Range with your AR10
