Commercial Sniping Ammunition

Sniper Central is all about helping educate military and Law Enforcement snipers about what may or may not work for them. On this page you will find a list of available ammunition for various calibers that we believe will work well for sniping. Keep in mind that this does not mean that any of these particular loads will work well in your particular rifle, as every rifle has its own loads that it likes. But the ballistics look good and if the ammo is accurate in your rifle, should work well.

We have included total drop at 1000 yards (with a 100 yards zero) for these particular loads. It is included in inches, MOA, and MIL in order to help with your decision making process about which loads to try in your rifle. These metrics are calculated in standard atmospheric conditions and with a zero at 100 yards. We also include energy at the muzzle and 1000 yards as well.

To further aid in your decision making process, we have also included links to where you can purchase the ammo online as well as links to any reviews we may have conducted with that ammunition.

Feel free to contact info@snipercentral.com with any questions you may have.
