Hello,

I'm new to forum. I'm a disabled combat vet, medically retired from the service. In rifles, I am primarily a bolt gun guy, but I do love to shoot all of my semi-autos as well. I couldn't get the search bar to work just now it kept closing before I could type a single letter. So if this has already been covered many times over, my apologies- technical issues.

Has anyone tried the new Federal Gold Medal Berger 73 grain in .223? I have a couple of heavy barreled match ARs that already shoot close to 1-hole at 100. Depending on the ammunition, they are capable of 1-hole. Well I just bought several boxes of this ammunition and took it to the range. I can tell you that in my personal experience, it's definitely the tightest shooting factory .223 ammunition that I have ever shot. Everything that Federal says about this ammunition is true and then some.

@don447 I have been using the .223 Federal 73 gr Berger for about a year now in my training rifle. That stuff is amazing!! It is a very accurate round.

I actually just crono'd some out of my 16" Knights SR-15 and it only averaged 2550 fps. The IMI razor 77 SMK averaged right at 2660 and were more accurate. But it may be awesome in yours!
