Yeah, you have to use match ammo for the best results. Interestingly, my accuracy AR15 loves both 55gr Hornady Vmax and 77gr Sig and Federal Match.
I haven't even seen any 77gr loads for sale. I'm keeping myself in the poorhouse shopping for both 5.56 and .300aac. I just picked up three 160 round tubs of 120gr Rem for the latter on sale from Palmetto.

I dont know if its still around but I bought my last batch only a few months ago, IMI 77gr Mk262 had been floating around for awhile I've built up a pretty good stash of it. Those 160rd tubs Remington? hows your luck been with their .300BO?

Haven't received them yet. Ordinarily I dont shoot Rem ammo EVER. It goes back to an experience I had with them in my gun writing days, but since it was on sale and I'm a little low on .300 I just thought why not. When they get here I'll post the results.

Haven't had the best luck with Remington either thats why I asked, in recent years only rem stuff i've shot and have no complaints about is the .380 UMC. Got one of the .22 buckets a few years ago and those were horrible.
