Our Notes: We have been very impressed with the accuracy performance of the Swiss made RUAG ammo that we have tested and used. This load only confirmed those impressions further! The consistency and accuracy with this ammo is exceptional which is obvious from the average group sizes in both rifles. The velocity is quite a bit lower than the published velocities, which was a bit strange, but perhaps slow and steady wins the race? We will gladly give up some velocity in exchange for excellent accuracy. The price is on the higher side, but not too bad, and all of the RUAG ammo is becoming more available in the USA. RUAG likes to say their Swiss P ammo is “The Sniper’s Choice” and their results here back that up. It is certainly worth looking at trying this load.

Remington 700 SPS-V/P Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2524 fps 21.34 77 0.722″ 0.722″ 0.559″
  • SD and ES were only average in the 700P, but the accuracy was still very good
  • Velocity over 100 fps lower than published velocities
  • It seems all the Swiss P ammo we test has slower than published velocities

 

Tactical Operations Bravo-51 Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2566 fps 11.87 37 .410″ .269″ .196″
  • Great Standard Deviation
  • Take out our one called flyer round and accuracy averages near .25 MOA
  • Still slow velocities, but we’ll take it with this kind of accuracy

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.
