I had the pleasure of shooting 702Shooter’s Precision AR Raffle Rifle. The raffle was put together to help build a world class veteran’s memorial here in Las Vegas. The rifle boasts a very impressive list of components all donated from various vendors who contribute to the effort.
To me the heart of the rifle is the Lija AR740 20” 1-8 twist 3 groove barrel. Lija started offering theses barrels in January of 2009. I’m a fan of the faster twist barrels because they allow you to shoot the heavier .223 bullets. The heavier bullets hold up better to the wind and make is easier to shoot long range with the .223 Remington round. It’s a very effective way to practice long range shooting and will help you develop skills for reading wind and adjusting for deflection.
