Bula Defense Systems XM21 test.

Finished up XM21 #3 to her final configuration today.
Bula XM21, Bula NM 22" barrel with Bula bolt,op rod, trigger housing and other small parts in a USGI stock $35. from CMP. Added a Hawk kit for appearance only. Scope is Leupold MK4 3.5 - 10 with lighted reticle. TAC-PRO cheek riser. SEI vortex screwed on end of barrel.
Ammo used was DAG brass and Tula berdan primers with 168 smk over 42.8 BLC-2. Running right at 2500 fps.
This test was done clean cold bore with rifle removed and put back in stock just before firing. Target is shot at 100 yards.
30 rnds rapid , within 90 seconds with one reload at 60 sec. Extreme spread 3". First rnd is indicated on target. The whole intention of this build is to " Get Er Done".

Good looking rig, but you need to fix your target paper. It looks as if the termites have found a home in the middle Art!


Thanks from nf1e and Jeff42899

Good one. All my posted targets have been and will continue to be done at 100 yds.
Grouping depends on which of the 30 shots you want to call a group. 3" is good enough for me for this kind of test.
I am sure there were at least 5 in that mess under 1/2 inch, but that only counts in horseshoes.

dumb question?
looking at the fact you used a smooth top gas lock without a sight dovetail,do you have some sort of buis system in case of scope damage/failure?

nice rig by the way.

Thanks from nf1e

Of coarse I do. I just walk in the house and grab another weapon, or use the 1911 on my hip. Actually the point an click method works fine anyway.

Those are his beater rifles. The good stuff is all sealed away in the underground bunker with the 100 year old scotch, and the vestal virgin concubines.

Looks like I need to do a little better at keeping out of view of those darn satelites and drones. My mind is still in the cold war preparation stage.
