PPU 7.62x54r Match

Postby Gamecock24 » Wed Jun 17, 2015 2:21 pm

I haven't yet gotten into reloading so I primarily shoot the above mentioned factory ammo out of UK59 barreled T53. Last weekend at the range I put up a decent group with this ammo and thought I'd share it. Image
I was shooting off a bipod at a 600 Yd plate with not mark on it so after the first shot which was roughly aimed at the middle I aimed at that impact which probably effected this group some. But it's still sub MOA with a 10 mph wind.

Thats a fantastic group for 600 yards with factory ammo!

And I remember it was said -- those barrels aren't any good. Don't waste your money. I think that's fantastic, great shooting. Just think -- once you hand load your own, thats going to get much better.

Thanks guys. My ballistic program would have me Dial 4.76 mils but I figured out that's too much. 4.5 mils is more like it with this rifle at 600.

That's smokin hot , Gamecock . Great shootin with a "bad" ole barrel , LOL....Guess it just goes to prove that barrels are like "ladies". No real "bad" ones ; Just some that's better than others .

That thing should be scary accurate with the right load in "her". Nice work .
If not me.....Who ?
If not now ....When ?

I'd love to see what that ammo would do in my tired '43!
