The Ammo has Arrived

The Big Brown Truck stopped by yesterday and left me a nice shipment of ammo to test. Tracking says the new Chrony should be here today, so we’ll be able to test these loads up right.

A lovely variety of 9mm (9×19mm, for you sticklers) was in the box, and we’re going to see what kind of groups we can get with them the HK USPc.

A fabulous selection of .22LR match ammo was in the box. We’ll be shooting these through the Savage Mark II BTVS. There’s a certain amount of cleaning and fouling that has to be done to make such a test consistent, and I’ll guide you through that when the time comes.

Lastly, we have some higher-end .223 ammo. These are heavier bullets (62-75 grain) that we’ll be testing through the Sig 556 after it’s properly broken in.

We'll see how this variety of 62-75gr .223 shoots in the Sig 556

This should make for a fun and educational day of shooting!
