I finally got the new 5.52 out to the range and was excited to see it can shoot. I only put about 50 rounds through it before it got too dark. I put the first 10 rounds onto a 12" steel plate at 15 yards to get a feel for it. I the put a 3" sticky target and shot 3 round groups with 115 grain wwb, American Eagle, and 124 grain Remington range fodder from a rest at 50 yards. They all shot 4-5 inch groups. I brought some of my 124 grain Everglades bullet loads I usually put through my glock 34 and that shrank it down to a steady 4". It shot 3" two handed groups from 25 yards without issue. I then fired 10 rounds at my full size idpa plate at 150 yards for giggles. Most wwb style range fodder isn't consistent enough to make consistent hits from that distance. And my glock 34 with the stock barrel cant make consistent hits from there with any ammo, however with the bar-sto match fit barrel and my reloads made for it, it can. The xdm 5.25 did it right out of the box. So far this is the most accurate gun out of the box I've owned. Now I can't wait to work up some loads that this gun will love.
