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 commercial ammunition 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, every rifle has its own loads that it likes.

We have included total drop at 1000 yards for these particular loads. The drop is displayed in inches, MOA, and MIL in order to help with comparing different loads. 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.

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 specific ammunition.

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