Scoped, benched, 100yds, bagged front and squeeze rear, 20rds , rapid fire...

NOTE ... I see a lot of 2 shots in one hole and such.. I think that merits some extra ammo sorting on my end.

Distance? Type rifle? Need to reload magazine/clip? Any further range testing perhaps in 5 or 10 round strings? Etc. Sincerely. bruce.

bruce,
I believe that he was shooting these out of an M1A or M14 clone.
As stated, it was from 100 yards and most likely out of a standard 20 round magazine. Not sure that matters as the rifle was benched with the front resting on a bag and the rifle was shot rapid fire.
Pattern looks good to me and have already purchased the 900 round case from SGAmmo.

This is not match grade ammunition and is Berdan primed. Just good plinking stuff.
Will get to the range one of these days and see for myself.

I picked up 900 rounds from SGammo, ran a mess of it thru the M1A Springfield at the range with my brother. Was awsome for what it is and was used for. Will buy more. You know what Orest used to say: Everyone is responsible for their own ammo hoarde".

To update, I just tested a little of this in my Win M88 .308 (it is scoped, but is not a particularly accurate rifle). Also, my conditions were not optimum.

This is the most accurate milsurp ammo I have ever tested - qty.3, 3-shot groups averaged 0.84" @ 100 yds.
Production was 11-79.

I don't have my records in front of me, but this was better than my older WCC and WRA (most likely single production lots), and my new production PPU.

Velocity from a 17" bbl ran about 2630 FPS.
I haven't calculated velocity standard deviation yet, but my chrono numbers were /unusually/ consistent through the test.

Default 7.62 Malaysian ammo

AIM Surplus has 7.62 Malaysian ball ammo for .44 per round shipped to your door, advertised as this weekend only. Berdan primed bimetal bullet but a good price for shooting ammo.
