I have been handloading for 30 years, and, until now, I have yet to find a factory round that could beat my loads. I have fired 40 rounds of Superformance .308 Win AMAX in the past 2 weeks from a Tubb 2000 Tactical with a 20" suppressed barrel. The fastest round was 2735, and the slowest round was 2725. Most were at or near 2730. The SD for 40 shots was 4. The largest 3-shot group was .304. The smallest was .137 (see the picture).

There was very little run out on these rounds, and the weight variance from round to round was as small as I have ever seen from a factory round.

I shot 2 deer last week just over 500 yards under a deer control permit . Both dropped dead in their tracks, and both shots were on the money. Then I shot a groundhog at 506 yards. That shot was dead center (on call).

I am thoroughly impressed, and just ordered a case.
