Great training ammo for inside of 600 yds
This ammo performed much better than I expected for the price. $.40 a round is pretty hard to beat. Accuracy was acceptable for what this ammo was priced at. Groups were 2-3 MOA, test platform was a SCAR-17 that is consistently 1 MOA with FGMM 168's. Actual velocity was 2707 average over 10 shots down the 16" barrel. Of the 120 or so rounds I've shot so far, they've cycled the gun with no problem. I was quite happy with the velocity being close to what was advertised, which is just under 2800 from an 18" barrel so 2707 out of 16" seems quite acceptable. The only thing I could really nitpick about is there was a pretty significant extreme spread in the velocity of about 98 fps. This was represented by 2 velocity outliers though; otherwise the extreme spread was closer to about 40 with a standard deviation of about 18. This is definitely not match ammo, but it's not advertised as such. This is good, affordable, and clean training ammo that's quite usable out to about 600 yds. This ammo does use a bi metal jacket, which is stated in the description which could be a minor gripe if you want to use it at an indoor range since it's magnetic, but it is not steel cored. I verified this by pulling a projectile and doing a cross section. Customer service was also good. I called in to ask about some of the specs and talked to a service rep who emailed me with the details I requested.
