Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent accuracy my 30-06 is a Rem 700 with Schlin bbl, McMillen stock, and Lupold 6.5 to 20 scope. At 100 yrs it shoots 3 inch groups with 147 fmj. With the 168 gr Federal match it shoots 1.25 inches at 200 yds and 1.75 inches at 332 yds. All are 5 shot groups. I'm 75 yrs old with bad eyes so this rifle is probably a one hole shooter and the dispersion is on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the most accurate factory ammunition I ever used! After I purchased a used Sako rifle in .30-06, I wanted to see how a premium grade factory ammunition would perform in this rifle. I was NOT disappointed! At 200 yards, my rifle shot M.O.A. ! I could not ask more of either this rifle and ammunition combination. True, this is not a hunting load with it's non expanding bullets, but I wanted to know what this rifle is capable of. I highly recommend this product! NOTE: This ammo is usually sold out from the gun shops I normally buy from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I am by no means a expert, but after correcting a windage calculation mistake I made, I managed 3/3 hits on a 1 yard target 1000 yards away with my 30-06 A-Bolt. This was my second ever attempt at this distance and first successful one. It was also the first time that I used this product... Five Stars!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from accuracy is great I hunt deer and other game. I try to get the animal at 500 to 800 yds. I do not shoot unless I know it will be a heart shop area. The longest deer shot was 825 yds. You must prove yourself by shooting hundreds of rounds at long distance. Only then should you try these shots. I have never had an animal run more than 50 yds. I love this ammo for consistency. You must have a match grade rifle. I used to load my own loads until I found this ammo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love the round the sight in info on the back of the box is wrong the ammo is one of the best there is . the sight in on the box is wrong and the tragetory on the tabels of the sight are wrong allso i know this first hand as i hav cornoed the ammo at 2755 average over three boxdes and that is out of the 24" barrel of my new model 70 win super grade we allso used 2 diff crono,s I live in Northern Alberta elivation of 2300' temp 56degree ferinhight . when i sight in so i am 2.5" high at 100 yd i am 43.5 " low at 500yds that is a hudge diff in what you show . i guess the lesson here is dont trust the info spend the $$$ for the ammo and shoot 5 shot strings all the way out to 1000yds in 50 yard steps that is what i ended up doing to get my shooting log right have to wunder if this is done to through us off so we have to by 70 rounds just to get it right up here in northern Alberta Canada Gold Medal 168 Matchkings are $48.56 for box of 20 so it cost me 169.96 for the info I should have got on the box free it is a tarrget round ment for 1000yards right at least it used to be now we have a 400yard sight in . Hmmm seems like to me we are trying to incurage the use of this as a hunting load it would be a very poor one as the bullet is ment for paper work only. good round for paper work verey stable goes to sleep fast DO NOT HUNT WITH THIS LOAD
