Oh the days gone by when I was stacking that IMI 77g and 75g @ $14/box, I wish I had gotten much more.

I attended a LPVO carbine class in 2020 that called for match ammo, I couldn鈥檛 make myself shoot my Mk262 stash so I shot 55g and was scolded for it not meeting the accuracy requirement. I still passesd, but running bulk ammo cost me a patch.

My SBC is .300 black, so I reserve the heavy 5.56 for distance.

I use 55gr for most of my plinking since it鈥檚 cheaper. I bought some a couple days ago for the first time in years, at nearly 3x what it had been costing me to load my own 馃槼. Times are tough!

I check the accuracy of my 5.56 and 7.62 NATO rifles with Hornady Superformance ammo. My plinking and practice is with Lake City NATO surplus ammo bought in 1,000 round boxes.
