Pipe cleaner. Very little amount of CLP or whatever cleaner you use. No lubricant. And after that pipe cleaner until it comes out completely dry.

Do the same with the gas-tube-reciever on the top of the bolt. While you're in there make sure there isn't a carbon build-up on the side walls of the upper reciever. Should also check the spring housing and all the vents to make sure they aren't clogged.

Another area people don't check is where the bolt locks into the chamber

That sounds more like it!
Was 20+ years since I was there.

At any rate, even though the front sight post is wider than the target there was little excuse to ever miss a point on the 500. Once you get a good position and sling set up, the prone is rock solid and as long as you can read the wind it's no issue.
I don't remember exactly but it seems like I was grouping the ten shots in like 6-8 inches. The biggest problem with prone was getting used to that tight sling.

I also went thru MCRD San Diego/ "Red Mike" Edson range and remember that we got a small bump in scoring because the range was metric and the rifle's sight elevation increments are in yards (or vice versa).
Si it was yards at Paris Island? I mean it's really no big deal.. 36 inches vs 39 inches... but it was always fun to give the Parris Island guys gas whenever they brought up Hollywood Marines

Mt Motha vs sandfleas .. metirc vs yards (or was it the other way around )


Ohhrah

Check out the Remington, Springfield and Kimber. Not sure what the word on Colt is these days but I would look there.

If you want a good reliable inexpensive model, look at the Rock Island

I got out in '03. I was on special duty since 2000 and hadn't hit the range since. However, this looks about right:

200 Slow- Sitting, Kneeling, standing
200 Rapid - Kneeling
300 Slow - Kneeling
300 Rapid - Prone
500 Slow - Prone

I have thought about getting an AR recently - if for nothing else than to have a lower receiver with which to attach any number of interesting uppers, ranging from a 5.7x28 to a .50 BMG to a crossbow. I haven't shot one much since being in boot camp, but I do like the ergos much better than any AK, I just do not trust them. Too much history of unreliability and fragility. Yeah, I know, they have improved, especially with regards to reliability (especially if you get a piston upper0 - not so much robustness (compared to an AK). If I had to walk away from my house in a SHTF situation where I was on foot, this would be what I would take with me:




and one of my 22 LR firearms - probably the Browning Buckmark (after I get the lighter longer barrel for it).

Remington 700 SPS in .223, converted to accept Ruger Mini-14 mags, threaded for my SWR Wolverine suppressor, with my night light on it. Used it last night on a coyote at about 250+ yards.
