How to Bore Sight an AR-15

How to Bore Sight an AR-15

One of the most important aspects of shooting an AR-15 or any other rifle is to make sure you hit where you are aiming. Sighting in a rifle is important to anyone serious about getting the most out of her shooting experience. One method of sighting in a rifle is bore sighting. As the name implies, you will looking down the barrel, through the bore, to see your target. Some rifles, especially auto-loaders such as the AR-15, will require you to remove the bolt from the breech. Another method is to use one of the newer laser sighting cartridges, which can save you a lot of time and is generally a lot easier to do. Although you do not have to go to a shooting range to do this, it is best if you do.

Instructions

Setting Up the Gun Bench and Rest


1 Set up a table. If you go to a shooting range, most will have gun benches on the rifle range. If you're shooting outdoors elsewhere, you'll need to set up a table that is sturdy enough to shoot from, and grab a chair as well. If you prefer to lay on the ground to shoot, that is fine too.


2 Set up a rest on the table for your rifle. Sandbags work great because they are heavy and will not move around as you shoot. You can also use a gun clamp made specifically for shooting. Most rifle ranges will have sandbags on hand, and you can find them at some sporting goods stores. Worst case, you can always make your own.


3 Set up your target. Usually 100 yards is standard for sighting in a rifle, so set up a target at the 100 yard marker at the range. If you are outside, measure and mark off 100 yards from your shooting spot.


4 Remove the bolt from your rifle. You need to be able to see through the breech and down the full length of the barrel. If you cannot do this with your particular gun, you'll need to use a laser sighting cartridge.


5 Put the gun on the sandbag rest and look down through the barrel so that you can see the target. Make sure the target is centered as close as you can get it to being exactly in the middle of the barrel. If you need to use a laser sighting cartridge instead, read the following step.

Using a Laser Bore Sighting Cartridge

6 Insert a laser sighting cartridge into the gun, just as you would with a regular shooting cartridge. Make sure to turn it on before you load it. Then place the rifle on the bench rest. The red dot should line up in the center of your target.


7 Adjust your sights. Once the target is centered by using either the bore or laser, adjust the sights or scope on the rifle accordingly. Make sure the cross-hair is centered right on the target of you are using a scope.


8 Fire some test shots. Usually groups of five shots are used to see where the bullets are hitting. Continue doing this until you're right on target.

What can stop a 50 caliber rifle bullet?

If you mean one of the myrid of 50 caliber rifle rounds out there from the civil war era, like the Spencer 50-56, then yea, a type II vest would do the trick

A 50 caliber is NOT one specific thing, it is just a statement that the projecile being fired is .5 inches wide. Remember, a 12 guage shotgun is a 73 caliber and the little 28 guage is a 55 caliber.

If you are refering to the 50BMG which some call simply call a 50 cal, then the answer is....short of strapping an M1A Abrams tank to your chest, there is NOTHING that is going to stop that 80 year old cartridge from getting to you. It is an absolute monster and can go through a bank vault door without breaking a sweat.

As far as how many inches of iron? Not all iron is the same, some is tempered to be much stronger, and that is true of steel as well, but I'd estimate 5 inches of raw pig iron. Special steel treated to be armor for tanks and armored personel carrier and the like is much harder, but the 50 BMG can still penetrate an inch of it.

If you are using a special AP ammo designed for the 50 BMG like the "Raufus" even the Terminator would be best served by running away like a little girl.

Raufoss MK211 Mk211 is downright shock and awe territory. Typical 665-672 grain weight of normal Mk211.

(This is why the AR15 is a good Self defense gun. It can be converted and used many different ways. This is an example. Cost $2,495.00)

(Every caliber has its limitation as the video says, "this is where it stops for the 556". It won't penetrate armour plating.)

(But check out the 50 BMG conversion kit from Advanced Long Range Systems in my next blog post. I'm sure it will penetrate armour plating.)

Question: DO I NEED AN FFL TO ORDER?

a. No FFL is required to purchase or own the 50 BMG AR15 CONVERSION because it is not considered a firearm. It is designed to be used with any existing AR15 or M16 as a replacement for the standard .223 upper receiver.

Installation of The Gen 2 SS Free Float Handguard

Every American that has a concealed weapons permit should get a free float handguard installed on their M4 Carbine. Every American that believes in the 2nd amendment right to bear arms should get one to protect themselves against criminals who don't obey the law but do know where "gun free zones" exist.
