NOW ya tell me... Just Kidding. What is Remington's Major Malfunction?marinesg1012 said:for what it is worth the Remington ammo SUCKS.... I would try either the SSA or the Hornandy stuff.
AHHHHHHHHH I have some in the range bag for the next go round. I wish I had tried THAT instead of the Remington...rcrandall said:Try the SSA 115gr OTM and Pro Hunters standard loads. They should work well.
When you say very accurate, do you mean say 1 MOA or under? Please say yes. I do have some Hornady V-max on order but I just got an email from Hornady today;tbready said:I like the 110 gr. Hornady V-max out of my 16'' LMT MRP 1/10. Very accurate. 8) SSA is also great.
Ohh I didn't disbelieve her at all. It just wasn't the answer I was hoping for but it was nice to know.Cold said:Ahhh Mrs. McHale, is an awesome person and very helpful! If she says that is the case I believe it!
I dont know I didnt know it sucked bfore I got here either I had 4 or 5 cases of the stuff sitting at the house, when I shot it through my AR performance upper it was shooting 2-3 inch groups, shooting anything else I hover right around an inch.IPSC_GUY said:
The S&B's are V-Max bullets. 8)IPSC_GUY said:Ok more testing... Still going through the various SSA ammo. I was shooting 5 shot groups with quite a bit of cool down time in the 40 degree air between groups. Each five shot group was completed in about a minte.
90 grain Sierra Varminter yielded a five shot 1.25 inch group.
115 grain Sierra OTM yielded a five shot 2.5 inch group...
Also the 115 grain was noticeably hotter. So far the 110 grain Pro Hunter has done the best.
I am going to buy some S & B V-Max like plastic tipped rounds and see how they do.

Good to KNOW ! ! ! I put a post up asking about this different primer size in some cases?marinesg1012 said:the SandB ammo shoots the same as the hornandy stuff the only difference is the primer size from what I can tell and the SandB uses a green tip and hornandy a red.
