I don't have skills. I have to over research every project I attempt. Almost every tool I own was purchased off Craigslist. Guys with talent can make money building things. Unfortunately, I can't. I have to earn my income in a lefty environment. Putz'n in the garage is just my escape from that nonsense.

The sticker below was my last seven rounds of Wolf Gold. I'll bet ya that a skilled shooter with an optic and good ammo could do alright with this rifle. I'm not very skilled.

I'm really surprised at the overall accuracy of my M85NP (US Machinegun folder + brace, TWS top cover, & Trijicon ACOG TA31 RCO). Lead sled + 55gr Wolf Gold was around 2.25-2.5 MOA yesterday. I'm going to run some 77gr OTM next outing, may get into the 1.5 MOA range. If you can mount optics, 2 MOA at the very least shouldn't be an issue.

Very little to no recoil, similar to my previous 74's. No complaints!
