No. Black hills is match and you can buy that in alot of places, like Georgia Precision. Tommy carrys alot of it. Give him a call or an email for match stuff

Never heard of what you're describing (at least not at those prices).

Black Hills is ok, but hardly match ammo.

Federal Gold Match is better, but expensive.

I know it's not what you're asking, but if you wnat match quality accuracy, look into relaoding.

Gun shows always have some. But really, you should roll your own (there's no way that factory match ammo can beat your own stuff)

Black Hills

are all excellent. It will take some experimenting to find what works best in your rifles. Blak Hills 52Gn HP shoots great in all my 5.56mm rifles. unfortunately its not really suitable for self defense or deer hunting.

Kiesler's usually has GMM in .308 for $13.50 a box.

Majors? Stuff has a pretty decent reputation. I think I saw a thread on the Comp. Board.

I get mine from Midway (projectiles), Sinclair Intl (brass) and gunshows (powder and primers). The best match ammo in the world is that which you cook up specifically for the rifle you shoot!

First, I would go to the Competitions discussion group and repost your question.

Secondly, the Major's ammo is excellent, but alas the last lot has been recalled by Hornady. He was using Hornady 175 gr HPBT and 3-D was producing the ammo.
see Major Stuph

The CMP often sells match grade ammo through their E-store CMP E-Store but the availability varies from month to month.

There is nothing wrong with the Black Hills and Federal Match ammo (the Federal runs a little hot), although your best bet (like others have mentioned) is to make your own.
