Not only no FFL required, but new rifle didn't even come with signature required. Sitting on front porch when I got home yesterday. Brand new lower and complete upper, including barrel and newer design floating handguard (longer barrel nut and more clamping surface, 3 screws instead of 2). Still a DPMS based recoil, however before I replaced it with the longer tube out of curiosity I pulled the spring, dropped the buffer and BCG back into the tube, and clearance looked good, wasn't ramming into the ears anyway like last one. Got to say, Anderson making every effort to make good. 12.06 gas tube looks to be positioned correctly. Completely disassembled and mostly back together last night, still need to fit the Aero bolt catch, put the M4-72 brake on (How to get the old locktight out of the threads?) , mount the new Sig Sauer BDX scope and a few rail accessories.

Month and a half or so not too bad wasn't expecting miracles. Took about the same or more for the Leupold I sent back, busy time of year. Probably won't get back to the range till next year,  hunting season, vacation, holidays. Have to have a little patience,  but definitely taking all the rifles out while its still cold to get some chronograph data in winter temps. The Strelok Pro lets you enter several temp/velocity pairs for ea round, uses it for fine tuning the dope table based on current conditions. Think I can do that with the BDX stuff also.

OK, Range report

Started with the Seekins adjustable block closed, wanted to see how much extraction force was required for a couple different rounds, seemed about right but nothing to really compare to. They extracted without too much force. for future may be a good way to judge chamber pressure. Then using some wimpy loads, took it out about 3-1/4 turns to get it to cycle and just lock back. took it out another 1/2 turn for good measure.  Then ran a couple hundred rounds through it, 2800 fps 150 gr bullets AR Comp powder, 180 gr RL-15 hunting loads, 180 gr AR Comp loads, bunch of misc BL-C2 and Varget loads from earlier testing. Cycled flawlessly over the entire range of loads. Brass stacked up in piles varying from 11:00 to 5:00 depending on load. Wimp loads stacked up on the shooting bench. Shot over a couple hundred rounds,  Re-lubed BCG after first 100 rounds. Now ready to start tuning rifle and loads for accuracy.
