Match Grade Ammo?

Recommended Posts

This is a old thread but I have had nothing but good results out of Black Hills 69 and 77 OTM. It may be hard to find and it is damn sure not cheap but it is good stuff if your barrel is 556 chambered. It is hotter than your standard 223.

Really?

Here's most the reloading equipment you need in a 15"x10"x9" range bag.

Only other thing you should get is this Fankfort Arsenal tumbler kit.

On sale right now at MidwayUSA for $64.99.

 

Of course if you are in prison, I don't recommend you reloading.... :segrin:

 

Just something to think about Sir.

 

Thanks.

Glenn

 

That's a good price ! Both pieces ? Capacity ?

Honey, somebody stole my credit card again!

It would really need to be a killer price cause I'm gonna have to put it up until I get another press....

Tumbler, rotary separator, 3.5 gal bucket, 4 oz. brass polish and a 3 lbs. bag of corn cob media in this kit.

MidwayUSA description says it will do 600 9mm cases and 360 .223/5.56 cases.

I have been running one of these kits for 6 years now.

Real life tumbling for me is more like 300 9mm cases and 150 .223/5.56 cases.

 

Thanks,

Glenn

Very tempting.

When I was young, I cleaned and lubed them by hand.

It was cheaper. I think it is a little like electronics. Tumblers

were a lot more expensive back then.

For the OP,

 

As a member of the military look into getting ammo from the CMP. I think as a veteran you can order directly from them.

Why do you need such bullets at 300-400 yards? Back in the day military issue was pretty decent at up to 600 yards.

 

here is what you can get at the CPM store

if I was going to use that I would get a 1 in 8 barrel

Actually the military issue stuff sucks at 600 yds for any kind of precision compared the match grade ammunition, especially if there's any wind involved.

Do you wanna hit a man or a 4" plate, are you shooting for groups at 400yd are the questions you should have asked.
