    Match Grade Ammo for $0.60/round?

    I am in no way affiliated or advocate TargetSport in any way. Just passing on info.

    Is IMI as good as people are saying?

    I have heard this IMI 5.56 69 gr SMK is nearly as good as black hills but only $12/box of 20. Buy a case and get free S&H.
    https://www.targetsportsusa.com/imi-...m-p-58973.aspx

    This now begs the question: is IMI 77 gr Razor Core effectively MK262 MOD1? But way cheaper at $14/box 20.

    Some reviewers are suggesting that it is and the fact that IMI is a secondary supplier of our military; this might be a way to stock up on performance ammo on the cheap.

    That is a good price for IMI. Free shipping is a plus.

    Haven't tried the 69 gr, but the 77 gr is just as accurate as the Black Hills. The 62 gr green tips are the best value though. You really don't see much difference until you start going beyond 300 yards. That's when the heavier loads start to shine

    54mm? Real funny. A green tip bullet it NOT over two inches long. Its gotta be around .8" give or take.

    That is the overall length of a ss109 round, not just the bullet. SS109 is also a 62 gr. bullet, so it would be different.

    Still, $0.60 a round for precision ammo is not that bad but I can load it for less. I am at about $0.45 for some .308 precision loads and about $0.42 for some 5.56 precision loads, but lots of time.

    It is all the other stuff that gets done, making sure that each batch the projectiles are within 1 grain (+/- .5gr), case and bullet concentricity, comparator to find matching ogive, neck wall thickness, primer hole prep, trimming, campher, primers, powder, dies, etc, etc, etc... Takes time to get the brass just right but without good brass or projectiles, nothing is going to fly that may even be classified as precision rounds.

    Biggest issue though is the platform. If that can't preform, you are just wasting your time.

    So at 60 cents a round for precision ammo, it is not a bad price at all.
