I'm quite satisfied
This review is a long time coming. One, you can't beat LG's service and speed, it's always on my doorstep within a day or two. Two, I run this ammo through a Springfield M1A made in the 80s with mil parts. It sits in an ArchAngel stock with a nice little Vortex Optics to top it off. I can consistently sting my 18" steel target at 500yds prone in the dirt off the bipod across the holler. I'd say they fair well. (every rifle shoots different) The spent brass will be used to work a new load for the rifle one day soon. But hey, for out of the box ammo for an M1A, I'd say it's a keeper when you can find it. I remember when we got it for nothing when I was in the Navy.............oh well, those were the days.
This ammo is a real value. I purchased it for shooting out of my M24SWS. I dug up some federal specs on its military contract requirements. M118LR had to meet approximately 1MOA 10 shot groups. This ammo truly stands up to those requirement. I've shot 3/4" groups at 100 yards and 1.5" groups at 200 yards. For a little more than $1 a round and knowing I have the same ammo designed for my system; I'm pleased with my purchase.
Good ammo, can't speak on the price
I currently use this ammunition in my position as a M/O. I can't speak on the price (this ammunition is alotted to me) but it would be well worth the price listed. There was a 150 FPS variation while chronographing the loads during a LE marksman/ observer course, however, the next round fired fell within 5 FPS of the others. It is not the cleanest ammunition out there but using a M110 I was able to land 5 rounds on target at 1000 yards with a 2 second interval between each squeeze of the trigger. If you do your part as the shooter the ammunition will definitely do its part. At 100 meters there was a 3 round cloverleaf which a dime could cover. If I could post a picture of the group I would.
7.62x51mm - 175gr HPBT XM118 Long Range - Lake City - 500 Rounds Loose
Great ammo! LG ships quickly. This ammo shot .75moa without much effort. I can probably tighten this up with some practice. Very pleased. Had a few minutes to shoot at the 300 yd range. Calculated dope and took one head shot on target. Very impressed!
Comes out on Top
I've run 18 different "match" rounds from everyone from Federal to Prvi Partizan to Lapua including some strange European stuff through my Rem 700 PSS and this XM118 is the best of the bunch. I can only go 500 yds. on my range but 1/2 to 3/4 MOA is typical.
Just ordered more!
One hole grouping from a 100-150 yards. 10 out of 10 times I can put a hole through a .40 s&w case I find on the range at 100 yards. 3/4 inch 3 round groups at 319 yards and 1 inch 5 round group at 319 yards. For the price... I don't think you could beat this round factory loaded.
Sierra Hotel Ammo!
Awe inspiring quality. Was able to put 5 rounds in a 3/4" cloverleaf @ 100 yards, no flyers. Consistantly hit a 12" plate @ 1000 yard. All with a non-match grade barrel bolt gun. Got 2 sub-lots in my order, ALL the ammo chronographed within 10 FPS! Same lot Federal Gold Medal has never run that close, for me, at least. BTW-Federal operates the LCAAP.
Good Accurate Ammo.
I bought this to shoot out of a GA Precision Harbinger .308. This is 1/2 MOA or better stuff. I am sure the Rifle and the shooter had a little to do with it as well. I shot out to 300 yrds and it still holds at 1/2 MOA or better. Had a couple of flyers but that was my fault. This wil tide me over till I can get my hands on a decent score of Varget and match Primers.
retrospective ammo quality
tell you what ,picked thru.most of these rnds will compete with a federal match ,easily . and anyone that shoots a lot with a battle rifle platform such as an m1a ,fn-fal , hk91 , etc. you will be pleasantly surprised how well this ammo holds groups at 200,400,600 and even a grand .if picked and gauged .the work is well worth the effort in results . and we all know what these rnds are for .if they have em when i make my order i will be definetly ordering 2.5k of em . 500 for final zeroing at a min of 400yds . this particular bullit is a jarhead/army fav along with fed match and has been for decades .for damn good reasons .accuracy & stopping power .
Great Ammo and Great Company to work with!
I recently acquired this ammo from Lucky Gunner. Unfortunately the courier misplaced the original order (it eventually showed up, long story) and without hesitation, LG sent me a replacement order free of charge even though it was not their fault. Incredible! I did eventually get my original order and made things right with Lucky Gunner as they went out of their way to make things right for me. They have my busy in the long run!
i went thru lawenforcement sniper school 10/2012 used this ammo,shot 600 rds in 3 days very accurate,thru rem 700 pss
this ammo is very consistent,very accurate,wide variations in temp. humidity. very pleased with function and accuracy. as everybody knows all ammo is expensive that is my only complaint. this is my first choice
Excellent long range ammo for a great price
I was shooting Federal GMM through my Tikka when I saw this on the website. It shot extremely well, didn't even require re-zeroing, and held sub-minute groups. It's also much less expensive than the Federal ammo. I'd certainly recommend this ammunition to anyone looking for a high performance round without crippling your wallet.
Another great luckygunner deal. This ammo has produced great half minute groups out of a 20" Shilen select match barreled 700, out to 600. Cant beat it with GMM or anything else factory loaded for accuracy or price. Thanks again luckygunner.
I compared this 118LR to GMM 168grn. There's a big difference and those that witnessed,are believers such as myself. At 100 yrds,all my 118's were touching. 2 in the same hole. GMM were half inch apart. This is threw an M24,5R 700 action-Supprressed. I refuse to buy GMM when I can get the real deal.
