Anybody ever shoot the American gunner line? I’ve got a new 6.5 semi and was thinking about using this for sight in and light prairie dog hunting and just having some factory ammo on hand. I reload for my 6.5 bolt gun. I can buy this for $.69 around. I don’t think I can reload it that cheap if I factor in my time.

While I have not used it in a semi both my dad and my brother get sub-1/2 MOA groups with it out of a Browning X-Bolt and a Ruger Precision Rifle. If I might ask where did you find it for that cheap?

I use it for practice ammo on barricades out to 500 yards. It's pretty slow out of my barrel, but shoots really well. Sportsmans Warehouse has 200 round cans for $140.

Ya I know SW has it for that price. I just wanted opinions before I bought that much. I’ve been burned before. I’ve got a whole case of fgmm that both my 308s HATE.

That's really odd that your 308 won't shoot FGMM. Every 308 I own loves it.

Anyway, a friend also shoots American Gunner and has very good luck with it out of his Bergara.

I got 100 rounds to try out of a couple rifles and it shot well. I’m actually going to order a few thousand rounds to use for practice ammo after trying it.

I wouldn’t shoot a match with it unless it was my only option but for factory ammo it shoots great and you can’t load ammo for what you can buy this stuff for.

A guy I know showed up with this ammo in a savage he spent $280 on and it shot way better than I thought it/the rifle too, should have! Rarely does anything impress me anymore but...

I've shot a bit of it, averaged about 2770, sd was decent, not singly digits but not bad. SW had it onsale at Christmas, it was about 55 cents a round, I bought 800 rounds.

Getting 1/2 to 3/4 moa in my Tikka CTR. Chrono numbers are low teens (12-13fps SD). 2560ish from a 20”, 2680ish from 24” (factory tikka barrels)

For the price, i shoot two boxes for plinking and use the brass. Stuffs pretty damn good for not being list as match. No issues at 840 yards
