Tactical Operations Bravo-51 Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2724 fps 10.68 31 .725″ .685″ .568″
  • Standard deviation and extreme spread were excellent
  • Velocities were great
  • Not sure why it did not perform better, Cor-Bon usually performs great
  • A nice higher velocity load that I think has some more accuracy potential

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.
