Remington 700 SPS-V/P Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2836 fps 23.85 58 .981″ .788″ .615″
  • Fairly high standard deviation and extreme spread
  • Fastest load tested
  • Very high velocity combined with highest in group BC makes for a very good long range load.
  • The “rebel” of the group, non conforming 167gr and high velocity, we view that as a good thing.

 

Tactical Operations Bravo-51 Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2807 fps 17.00 50 .658″ .658″ .588″
  • One of the few loads that was slower in the Bravo than the 700P
  • Very consistent groups with no stories

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.
