    Service Rifle Ammo!

    Called in at Reloaders yesterday on my way to Clevedon for a practice. They recently got a shipment of more BVAC ammo including .223 62 grain ball which is $660/1000. I grabbed a case and it shoots real well through my M4gery. It tracked true by the Elcan carbine reticle out to 300 so I would think it's close to M855 spec if anyone is looking for that.

    They've also got BVAC 300BLK 200 gr subs but that's pretty expensive, about $3 per round...

    Ray.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    I just had a decko at my spent brass from yesterday and it's about 99% Lake City.

    Yeah, its good stuff.
    Their .308 stuff is even weight sorted to a better tolerance than most new factory ammo.
