I did a search on UMC ammo, but it really didn't answer my question. I have an Oly 16" lightweight. I have been shooting White Box Winchester USA brand 55gr FMJ and UMC brand 55gr MC almost exclusively. I have had no problems at all with either load. My question is regarding velocity as compared to Q3131, Fed XM-193, and others. Both Winchester and Remington websites state muzzle velocity is 3240fps. But that is out of a 24 inch barrel. How does this compare to the others I mentioned, and what can I expect out of my 16" barrel. Has anyone chronographed these loads? Are the factory quotes accurate? And is this really much less than the others, being a budget brand? Sorry for asking so much all at once. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
