You got me shivering just watching, good video
Went to the range today, and filmed a couple of runs doing the VTAC 1/2 & 1/2 drill. Run 1 was done cold, Run 2 was done at the end of the session.

The gun runs smoothly.
As for precision, it does quite well. This is my 20 round group @100 meters, in what we call rapid fire; this equates to a cadence of 30 rounds per minute. I was done from the prone position, using the magazine as support.
I was grouping right due to wind. It was about 6 m/s today. My POA was center of target.

"This is why we didn't want Hk to make cheaper guns. Now that poor people can afford them, they're bringin down the property values."
That's awesome, AGR! Is that the 14.5"? I get similar groups with mine at 100 shooting prone using a T-1...with decent windage compensation too. ;)
Thanks for sharing. And yeah, I was feeling cold watching these too.
It is the 16.5" version.
My best group was a sub-MOA group @ 100 meters using a Short Dot a few years ago. 5 round group slow deliberate fire bipod supported.
Shot some more yesterday, and a good time to try out my new Contour Roam as well:

Results Half & Half:
The three shots that are outside the A-Zone are shots 8, 9 and 10 from the 20 meter line, you can see that I'm wobbling a bit on those three shots. I was trying out a new vest setup, and changed out my VTAC 2-point sling with a BFG releasable vest strap. Resulted in less stability than I am used to out front, since I usually cinch the VTAC sling tight when I shoot. Should even itself out after a few more trips to the range.
As far as the gun goes, it still runs like a clock, also after the modifications done to the gun by the techs. No malfunctions what so ever these last two trips, and no malfunctions during an exercise a few weeks ago using blanks and a BFA. The only parts I have swapped out (aside from the upgrade of course) is a hand guard, because I supposedly fastened the screw to tight. The manual says 7N using a torque wrench, my experience is that the screw comes undone after heavy firing using that little force.
It was quite windy yesterday, so didn't bother to do any long range shooting, and worked on the close range stuff.
I know the Bill Drill is shot too close, but I was doing some instruction for a couple of other guys, so we started close in to work on recoil management.
Thanks for sharing these some bill drill fun. Funny about the handguard torque, that screw has actually come loose on me too. I now have it marked so I can torque it without a torque wrench.
Did some shooting yesterday, here are some vids (I am the shooter in all the vids):
Bill drill, 7 meters, 1.89, all rounds inside the 9 ring:

Headshots from the standing unsupported position at 30 meters was difficult, so needs more practice.
Then we did some standing to kneeling shooting at 15 meters, start movement at 18 meters, shoot when buzzer sounds:

This was followed by four runs of El Presidente, 7 meters, "Heroes or Zeroes" scoring (hits inside 9 ring counts, hits outside means you fail the run). Filmed them both POV and 3rd person view. This was my first time shooting El Presidente.
Run 1, 8.96, 1 miss:

Last close quarters drill was a Shoot and Move drill, ran it two times. 4 targets numbered 1-4, four firing positions numbered A-D. Double taps to target 1 and 2 from firing positions A(10m) and B(20m), double taps to targets 3-4 from firing positions C(10m) and D(20). 16 rounds total per run, 45 second time limit. Movement is supposed to be rapid, without running. Hits inside the 8 ring or better. Filmed both runs POV and 3rd person:
Run 1, 32.04 secs, 1 miss:

Run 2, 33.14 secs, all good hits:

When I say misses in regards to the all drills above, I mean that I did not hit the required zone, not that I missed the target completely. Just for clarification. I had also shot a few drills before the Bill Drill, but did not film those. I also shot a Standing to Prone drill at 30 meters, but I haven't had time to edit it for PERSEC.
Then we did some long range shooting, first at head sized balloons, then at an F-type silhouette steel target (you might see it to the left of the bigger target). Targets were placed at 300 meters. Only used the Aimpoint, prone magazine supported:

Was able to score quite a few hits, on both balloons and the steel target.
No malfunctions with the gun today, like always.
Then, lastly, I did some HK417 shooting:

Does your training include the thumb break method, or is that how you hold, a lot of leo seem to hold the mag or fore grip,
