Hey all long time lurker finally joined as I have picked up and x95.

Coming from AR's took a few range sessions to get used to shooting it.

Shot like crap first outing averaged 4-5 inch groups at a100 yards.

Waited a couple days went back to the range and settled down and really shrank groups down to 2-3 inchess

Over all I love this thing! And I am convinced the more I shoot it I may shrink groups a bit more.
Was using imi855. And imi77 grain otm.

I am really thinking about selling a couple of my AR's and getting either another 95 or an sar now.

Ok ramble over just a happy owner

Welcome! Glad to hear you're getting great groupings with the X95.

Great pic, btw! Love the gun, and love the dog! American flag + X95 + German Shepherd = win.

Welcome to the X95 world. You will find your groups keep getting tighter the more time you have on the rifle. Also the X95s seems to like 55grn bullets best for producing tight groups and this might save you a grip load of cash unless you have a need for 77grn OTM ammo.

I vote for selling the ARs and buy another X95, we did and do not miss the rifles we sold. ARs are great rifles, but kinda boring when compared to a fresh design like the X95. But then that's just me and 35
years of owning ARs.

Agreed been shooting them about as long . Probably keep my Daniel Defense but dump the rest.

I will give 55grain a shot I had some 77 on hand for my Daniel defense ar , that thing loves that stuff.

I have a crap ton of 55 stashed so time to break it out.

Get a SAR next. It's even better in the accuracy department. I love mine.

I would get another x95, but in a different caliber.

I have the 9mm kit so I can switch back and forth. But it would be nice to have 2 complete pups ready to go.

GSDs are the best, got mine from 24kgsd.com

Here's another vote for the SAR. The X95 in no way makes the SAR obsolete, any more than it would make the AUG obsolete.

Same story here, been reading around here for a good while and finally bought an X95.

2-3 MOA shooting with irons or only a red dot at 100 yards ain't nothing to sneeze at, good job.

Where you shooting it from a benchrest?
