I did a quick search and nothing of value showed up. Who has some experience with it? I'm looking for something that will give me a little more accuracy than PRVI M193 from a 1:7" 16".

I shot some PMC X-Tac and it gave me about 2 MOA 10 shoot group at 100. Of course every weapon is different but you should not expect better accuaracy with PMC X-Tac (or with any M855 type round) than you will with M193. You should look at match type ammo in the 69, 75, and 77 grain for accuracy, the only down side to thses are they tend to cost alot more. Some good accuracy performers that I have shot thru several 1in8 SS barrels are Black Hill 77gr, Privi Match 69gr, and Hornady Match 75gr.

Where are you at in NC, by your screen name I take it you are near Ft Bragg

Sounds good. I'm just looking for any type of review for the ammo. I've got some 69 grain stuff and I'll move more into the 75/77 now that I've built a 1:7 upper. I'm justlooking into a couple thousand rounds of of bulk stuff.

Out of 4 different varieties of M855, the X-Tac shot better than all the others for accuracy...out of MY gun. I have yet to see a negative review of it, and it's quite affordable.

It shoots pretty good out of my Noveske. Comparable to IIMI M855. I'll buy some more, when I get down to 500 rounds. I doubt you will get better groups than the Privi M193, though, just depends on your rifle. Palmetto has X-Tac on sale for $5.99 a box, and Privi M855 is fairly priced also. Get some and try them both.

You won't get any complaints from me. I've shot both PMC XTAC, and Privi Partizan M855. 1K of each. Out of my 14.5 Dominator 1 GG&G upper, Privi groups just a little better, but not by much. Either one, you can't go wrong and both are a great buy from Palmetto State Armory.

Ordered 1K of each from PSA.

This was out of my CMMG Bargin Bin w/TA11 Acog 10 shot groups supported but no "rest" 100yds.

LC headstamped w/NATO cross M855

PMC Bronze 55gr

This is the best group I've been able to pull off with it.

Shooting on sandbags and at least a minute between rounds to let that skinny barrel cool off.

ETA.... those blocks are a bit under an inch. My print driver auto resized the target image to fit the printable area on the page when I printed them.

Have you tested out this PMC/PSD X-Tac ammo yet? Would love to see your accuracy and velocity results...please keep us posted.

I had two rounds short stroke out of my gun (KAC SR15), only failures I've had with my gun, but I've got friends that run Xtac fine
