Shooting Illustrated July Issue Arrives On Newsstands
Fairfax, VA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The July issue of Shooting Illustrated, which arrives on newsstands today, features the much-awaited Bushmaster Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR) on its cover and an exhaustive review of the gun by former SOF sniper Steve Adelmann.
“I found if I reinstalled the barrel to the exact same ratchet position, POI shift was 1/2 inch at 100 yards,” he wrote about the innovative carbine’s barrel-changing mechanism.
“I’ve seen other polymer-catch folding stocks that ‘break’ into the folded position unintentionally, but the ACR I tested did not have the problem,” noted Adelmann.
It took him 7 seconds to convert the non-reciprocating charging handle to a lefty-friendly position, and of the three types of ammunition tested, one produced a .6-inch, five-shot group at 100 yards.
“Rifle Editor Steve Adelmann’s combat experience gives him an unusual perspective in testing the ACR,” Shooting Illustrated Editor in Chief Guy J. Sagi said. “As for which ammunition produced a .6-inch group at 100 yards, you’ll have to pick up the magazine to find out.”
