5 of 5 I’m sold. September 19, 2021
Reviewer: Dan from FL  
I use to buy these just for plinking ammo and was very satisfied with them in that role. Then I built a new AR for 2 gun competition with a 14.5” barrel and discovered during sighting in it performed really well with my plinking load. Now I’m not talking one hole accuracy or even MOA accuracy. I’m talking consistent hits on target out to 400yds. During my testing I put 13/15 on an 8” plate at 350yds, that sold me on these bullets. For the past 2 years these are the only bullets I’ve used for 2 gun matches. They have consistently out performed the big name brand 55gr FMJ in my rifle.

4 of 5 Great plinking round December 27, 2020
Reviewer: Greg from Illinois, United States  
late 2020 update - Ordered another 500 of these and i received a box of Silver City Bullets .224 projectiles. They are very similar with a less visible canelure. Would be great to be informed I would not be receiving xtreme bullets that I was expecting.

I purchased a box of 250 on the recommendation of another reloader with much more experience than I have and was pleasantly surprised. I loaded these in new WIN brass with 2 different powders and compared against Hornady A-max 55grn bullets with the same loads. These were consistently within the 9 ring at 100 yds (windy day) and the Hornady were not even in the black. I offered the rest of the Hornady box to a friend and am sticking with these.

4 of 5 proper weight May 26, 2020
Reviewer: horse trader from Leland, NC United States  
NOTE I haven't shot these yet. Weighed 50 out of 1000 ordered. weights from minimum 50 gr to maximum 50.2 gr. this is suitable for my needs (plinking). Only gripe is the cannelure, its almost nonexistent. Hence the 4 out of 5 stars. If you look closely its apparent in the photo.

5 of 5 Amazing July 9, 2017
Reviewer: John Woodington from Lizella, GA United States  
I'm shooting these bullets out of my Savage Model 12FV. The gun has a 26" heavy barrel with a 1:9 twist and cost me under $400 without scope. These bullets are considerably better than any store bought rounds I've run through this gun. They've been fairly accurate with just about every length and powder charge I've thrown at them. However, I'm currently loading them with 24.8 grains of Ramshot TAC powder with an OAL of 2.312" and put 8 shots in 3 inches at 400 yards today. I'm not sure how you could ask for much more than this in any bullet.

Even doing a ladder test at 400 yards to try and find the best powder charge, I put 22 shots in 6.5 inches. Makes it tough to track the shot order but also makes the powder charge selection fairly easy.

I've run about 200 rounds through my gun and haven't really been disappointed yet as long as I do my part behind the gun.

1 of 5 55gr? June 20, 2017
Reviewer: Benny from Holmen, WI United States  
I ordered 1000 of these. After shooting 290 of them I couldn't figure out why my groups weren't any tighter. I dumped the last 210 bullets out of the box and weighed them. 42 of the 210 bullets I have left are 62gr, not 55gr. I haven't even looked in the other box of 500 yet.
