Hello- I have been slowly putzing around, collecting components from Olympic P.C.R. rifles. (i know i know- but they are good quality and dont cost much!) My aim has been to have one lower and swap between a carbine upper for plinking/screwing around, and a target upper- I'm on a budget $300 for a vortex scope- A3 upper (substituting an Yankee Hill Machine/Cerro forge upper (Are the YHM uppers adequate?)) At th heart of this upper is a 5.56 1/9 stainless steel 20" heavy barrel from a 2004 Olympic arms rifle (with its matching bolt carrier group) will this 20" barrel be adequate for a sub in group at 100 yards? how bout 200?
I was advised today that I should get a 24"... but I already own the 20"...

I'm not trying to win any championships but I want to be able to reliably hit a pop can at 150 yards-

Thanks for any advice!
Cyclops

If you already own it, It costs you nothing to try it. Itís not the length of
the barrel that counts. Itís the quality of the barrel and ammunition. I
would load up some 52 grain match kings and give it a try.
