Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the performance I use this in my high power matches on a reduced distance 200 yard range and love what this cartridge can do. They make me look like I know what I'm doing! Sierra bullets are my favorite anyway so I'm staying with these

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BANG for your buck! Glad I found ammo that my Mossberg MVP loves! Was planning on reloading for accuracy but I think proof is in the pudding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cartridge! While trying out different cartridges to see what my 1:8 white oak barrel liked, I found these. Let me say that they are amazing. Excellent quality and attention to detail by Federal. My rifle loves them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results I used this ammo for a 300 meters shooting with a grouping less than 1". Fits very well in my Tikka Sporter 1/8" 24" barrel. I really improve my groupings since I use this ammo. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I have no trouble hitting a 10 inch plate at 535 yards out of my 18 inch barreled AR. It has a custom trigger and a JP muzzle break, but everything else is fairly stock. I realize that's a 2 moa target. My groups at this distance are typically 1 to 1.5 moa. I'm very pleased and will continue to run this ammo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from winner at 600 yards I shoot this to 600 yards. My first group at 600 was about 4 inches and some smaller than an inch. Savage Model 12 with varmint barrel. It matches most handloads. At 100 yards I have shot 0.25 MOA YMMV
