  1. gonfishing

    Fantastic player. A very precise and consistently round. The box lists the MV as 2710, but mine was slightly slower when recorded at 2653, but still the same, so no issue. The barrel broke in and scope adjustment after that? ammunition was .36 millimeters at 100. 30 rounds in the group size inside the container Ruger Precision 6.5 CM, 24in 1/8 twist. We couldn’t be more pleased.

    These were used in a Coues hunting whitetail. A very precise round. Also, two cow elk one week later. One was shot at 446 yards, and the other at 498 yards, both shot by junior hunters. The 446 yard shot were lung shots. The 498 yards the elk was down quickly, and the then the cow was thrown off in her tracks. Overall, a highly precise shot with a fantastic finish!

    We use this ammo for benchrest target shooting at 100 to 300 yards. This is the fourth order I have placed for this exact brand/part number. So far, I have shot 600+ rounds and I get very consistent, very accurate results.

  4. denisgolikh

    The ammunition was less than 3/4 MOA or more at 100 yards with my Ruger Precision Rifle and have fired it up to 600 yards.

  5. cristian_papo

    It’s the only ammo I run in my precision rifle. I’m not a reloader. Very accurate.

  6. denisgolikh

    I tried several factory loads with my RPR 6.5. This load out performed them all consistently.

  7. 46djmartin

    Only thing to shoot out of my rifle

  8. denisgolikh

    Very accurate. Shoots .6 in my Ruger American

  9. cristian_papo

    I my savage axis this ammo shot under 1 moa. this is a very good target round.

    Utilizing the rounds I have in my Ruger Long Range Target Rifle made of 6.5 millimeter Creedmoor (26″ barrel with a 1:8 twist) I have the highest group size consistency out of the five ammo brands/bullet sizes I’ve tested thus far. The chronometer I’ve used for 30 rounds has an average muzzle speed of 2675 fps, with a typical variance of. This particular gun “likes” this bullet’s 140g weight and it’s bullet’s design. Hornady Match ammo delivers consistently excellent results. The rifle you are using may “prefer” a different bullet weight and velocity Also, try the 120 and 129 grain Hornady Match or Superformance ammo If you’re still trying to figure out the ammo that your gun “likes” best.

    I offer these to the students in the Long Range Hunting Class where we hunt for 1000 yards.

  12. yusuf

    This ammo performed very well in my AR10. At 100 yards I was getting 1/2 MOA, can’t ask for much better than that from factory ammo. Was ringing the 8″ plate at 300yds very consistently. Now I’ll try it out at the 600yd range and see how it does.

    Gun: Bergara B-14 Ridge Scope: Leupold VX-3i LRP After following the Bergara break in procedure with American Gunner ammo. My first 3 round group with this match ammo measured 0.3″

  14. juliaweather

    It’s my first time shooting ammunition from the Rem 5 R with a Calvin the elite trigger! First shot shot out of the gun was bore sight shot of 25 yards in the bullseye! The next three shots at 100 yards are sub .4 inch groups. Couple days after, this ammo fires four shots .298 group! I am Reloader! I’m going need to put in the effort to get ahead of what the factory ammunition will achieve! !

    Typical Hornady quality. Excellent accuracy from the Remington 700 AAC-SD 6.5 CM. Shooting is one of my favourite handloads. Sub-MOA accuracy.

  16. yusuf

    When I purchased the Ruger RPR 6.5 I was told by other people who had the same rifle to purchase these. They shoot at the highest quality. I needed to test it I bought six different kinds of ammunition each “match” grade, 2 boxes per. This Hornady match ELD was 140 and produced tiny, 5/16 shot holes. Then came that Hornady ELD in the 147. Apart from Fiocci precisely, nobody else came even close. I have run up to 615 rounds in the weapon up to the present, in any conditions, and they’ve consistently performed at all ranges from 500 meters. I love this ammo!

  17. cristian_papo

    Compared to all of the other match ammo I tried, this was the most accurate and consistent groups I was able to shoot in my Bergara B14 BMP rifle.
