AR 556 at the range

My AR 556 that I bought in November is now grouping at less the 1 1/2 " at 100 yards, (some less than an inch) off a bench w/ a bipod, outdoors with a bit of wind....I did upgrade the trigger to a CMC 3.5 lb pull single stage...big difference! Shooting Freedom Munitions 55 gn FMJ reloads! I am more than satisfied with this AR!
