After considering several posts on AR-15.com, I decided to buy a Rem 700 LTR. Early sight-in results seemed to indicate I had "shooter". I went to the range with several factory loads. Each was shot over a chrono, obvious flyers (shooter error) were omitted ( max 1 per string). Range was 300 yds. Two 5 shot groups were shot with the exception of the Blackhills. The rifle was cleaned between each ammo and 2 fouling shots were fired before the record targets. Results: Blackhills 175gr 2572 fps, 2 9/16 group. Sellier & Bellot 168g Match, 2450 fps, 4.62 group, Federal Gold Medal 168, 2549 fps, 3.28 group. Federal GM 175g, 2580 fps, 2.125 Group. Best group was Fderal 175 @ 1.5" There was a moderate wind

FWIW, from what others have posted Black Hills is 2,700 fps out of the 26" tube.

Shows very little loss despite the 6" dif.
