Tactical Operations Bravo-51 Test Results
Average Velocity Standard Deviation Extreme Spread Accuracy w/flyers Accuracy no flyers Best Group
2672 fps 13.84 49 .786″ .483″ .483″
  • Velocities from the bravo were close to factory claims
  • two of the three groups had called fliers
  • Ammo showed very good accuracy potential from the bravo… if the shooter can get his act together.

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.
