Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juggernaut is the right name! I bought (2) boxes to try out, have a custom 308 24" 1:10 barrel, shocked by the quality of this round. StDev(13 rounds)=5.3 @ 2700 fps. 8 of 8 shots inside 1.25" circle at 200 yards (0.6 MOA). Other shots went to 300 and 400 yards on steel, dead center mass, very consistent. Never have seen another production round ever come close. I am definitly buying this round in high quantity despite being an avid and competent reloader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AS good as hand loaded ammo! Bought 200 rounds of this to try in my Remington 700 AICS. Chronographed muzzle velocity max at 2612fps/min 2606fps /avg 2609 fps with an S-D of 2.8!! Hit shots from 500-1100 yards on steel MOA targets. Very pleased with the performance of this ammunition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to the Gold Metal name I bought a couple boxes to try out in my LR308 style rifle with a 20 inch Ballistic Advantage barrel. Multiple groups have shot less then one inch, and velocity measured 2550 average. I am very happy with the performance of this new round, it is a nice step up for the .308 in long range performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ammo - Shots Point of AIM I haven't run too many rounds of this stuff through my guns, but so far so good. Shot out of my piston gun the best group was .48 MOA at 100 yards, taking honors for the day by a full .25 MOA over the next closest contender, the outstanding Hornady Match 168 BTHP, and putting a beat down on my best GMM 175 gr group of 1 MOA. The next outting (gong shooting in the rain was not good, but i pulled the last shot and dropped my .75 MOA group to a 2.16 MOA group. As I shifted before shooting, I could see where my crosshair aimed, and it was exactly where the shot hit. It shoots point of aim. Of course, the gold medal cycled excellently, no failures whatsoever. Ill probably get out in the next month or so and run a box of this against GMM, Hornady, and Fiocchi to see what 15-20 rounds yield head to head, but so far im impressed. Also, seems to share point of impact with other "comparable" rounds. I shot most of the rounds that day with PMC 168's, with the rifle sighted in for the GMB's. I consistently hit a 3 inch gong, a 3.5 inch reactive target, and a 6 inch gong at 100 yards with no adjustments. I also shot some of those tall water bottles with no adjustments. The first representation was in an indoor range from a concrete rest. The next was down into a small "valley" at a hilly farm on a wobbly polymer table in the rain into a steady 10 MPH cross breeze.
