Grafs has match ammo on sale

Postby Even11 » Sat Jan 18, 2014 3:26 pm

182gr match ammo "blue box", $10.99 per 20. I have heard good things about it but have never shot it myself, thought you guys might like to see it!

This is the Soviet made 7.62x54R cartridge. Loaded in 1971, using match-grade extruded powder and have a 182 gr boat-tailed FMJ copper-plated steel-jacketed projectile with a lead core. Loaded by “Factory 188”, the cartridges are head-stamped with the number “188” and the year of manufacture. They are packaged 20 rounds to a paper box, 12 boxes per metal tin, and two tins per wooden case. Berdan primed cases. This is loaded ammunition.

Have you seen any of this stuff? It's 200gr match ammo and shoots sub MOA in at least two of my guns. Would love to get more and have not been able to find any.

I have 800 rounds of this stuff -- it is excellent quality ammo according to Iridium. I shot it a few times till I figured out there copper plated and not copper jacketed. They measure .309. When I shot it the rounds at 100yd 3 round groups -- it was one hole.

Color doesn't matter, matters word "целевые" - "target use" or "match"...

The yellow box is 200gr and has a longer baring surface. Works better in most Mosins with worn out barrels.
