With the right loads just about any AR will shoot MOA. I have a 16" lightweight, a 20" Hbar and a 20" bull barreled model and the 20" bull is great to shoot off of a bench or a bipod but sucks in any position shooting. It is so front heavy that position shooting is just a pain in the butt. To get it to balance right you have to add 2-3 Lbs of lead to the buttstock which makes the gun weigh in at 12-14 lbs. My kids like the bull barrel off the portable shooting bench because it soaks up what little recoil it has annd they can see the hits on ground squirrels easier.For any other shooting the 20" Hbar is the heaviest I'd go with if I had to carry the gun or shoot it without a bench. All of mine are 1:9" twist which lets me shoot everything up to the 68-70 grain bullets.
What barrel lengths and twist rates are you guys using and what kinds of groups are you getting with your set up? I'm just looking deeper into my conquest of building an AR. I'm thinking I want to buy a 20 in. bull barrel with a 1in9 twist just as long as I can get sub moa groups.
