I think Olympic ammo is great. Today, I blasted off a couple of hundred rounds with ZERO problems. Mostly, I was plinking and blasting water filled jugs, but I did fire three target groups. All three five shot groups where within three inches at 100 yards. This was done with standard A2 iron sights. One problem is that the Olympic ammo is a bit stinky!

Don't know why anyone would call you a liar. 3 inches at 100 yards is reasonable accuracy. I always roll my eyes when I read about half inch groups at 300 yards. Some folks stretch the truth a bit in this regard IMO.

They would call me a liar about having no problems with Olympic Ammo! I LOVE the stuff.

Was it the green tip SS109 62 grain ammo or the M193 55 grain. I think most of the problems came from the SS109, I know mine did.

I've had good luck with the 124gr. 9mm in my CZ 75B. Some say it has hard primers, but it doesn't seem to be a problem with the CZ.

It was the M193! Great stuff.

Half inch groups at 300 yds is nothing. When I was shooting my departments anti-sniper Barrett, I got 1 shot half inch groups at 800 yds. Yeah, Olympic SS-109 out of my shorty was an iffy proposition. It worked but not dependably. No more Greek ammo for me.

I bought a couple of boxes of Olympic 30-06 from Midway. Out of 80 rounds: 3 of the bullets had FALLEN OUT of the brass. 15 bullets were so loose I could spin them in the brass. By lightly pulling on the bullet, 8 more bullets came out. I will not buy Olympic again. Av.
