YMMV but my Olympic 16" seemed indifferent to it. Functioned flawlessly, but no more accurate than some of the other stuff I have tried. I also tried it in a Colt 20" Hbar and noticed it was one of the more accurate rounds, but not spectacular. I'll be trying again with a new upper. It's pretty decent stuff though and if the price is right then its all good.

They're only so-so for accuracy in my V-Match. Shoots about 1-1.25" at 100yds. Better than M193 (1.5-2" usually) and also a little better than USA 55gr FMJ, but not as good as 45gr JHP USA or Hornady V-Max at .5-.75" or so. Dad's Rem 700 on the other hand likes them and shoots about .5" at 100 with them.

Bottom line is they're not bad, and if they were cheap they're even better.

It seems that in the longer, slower twist barrels they shoot awsome. I have had great success shooting dogs with that load in 12 twist varmint rifles. You can't be getting this stuff cheaper than ball,....can you?

I have a 20" 1/7 and this round shot a 9/16" 3 shot group. If I had a camera I'd show you it. Blows the slower twist theory. I've heard many in the past say this bullet is very accurate. My chiropractor uses it for his remington varmint gun for prairie dogs and his 5 round groups that I've seen we're right around moa at 200 yards. I didn't see any of his 100 yard targets.
