Tactical Operations Bravo-51 Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2678 fps 25.00 85 .900″ .811″ .650″
  • High standard deviation and extreme spread
  • One of the few loads that had a lower velocity in the Bravo vs. the 700P
  • Consistent groups again, but not terribly small
  • I would like to reshoot this ammo, I think there is more potential then the results indicate.

NOTE: “Accuracy with flyers” includes the raw averages including groups where the shooter called a bad shot before rechecking the placement of that shot. The “average without flyers” is the average group size with those “flyer” groups not added in.
