Shooting Sports USA - January 2015 - 35

OAL to the bullet tip: 3.323"
Variation: 3.317-3.327" or +/- .010"
OAL to the ogive: 2.652"
Variation: 2.643-2.662" or +/- .019"
Bullet runout for three cartridges
was less than .001"; the remaining
seven varied from .001-.004"
.

TEST PARAMETERS
Because Creedmoor Sports is
marketing the ammo specifically
to shooters of M1 Garand M1917
and M1903 rifles, I ran Creedmoor's ammo through the stock
M1903A4 I use for Vintage Military
Sniper Rifle competition, which
has a Criterion barrel and a
Hi-Lux reproduction of the
M73B1 2.5x scope. Tests were
conducted at 100 yards from
sandbags on a concrete shooting
bench. I warmed the barrel with
five rounds to simulate competition sighters and fired ten-shot
strings, waiting 30 seconds

▼ While the rule book doesn't allow
us to compete with a fixed test
barrel, this sub-MOA, 10-shot group
is a good indication of what the new
Creedmoor match ammo is capable
of using a 167gr. Scenar bullet and
Lapua brass at 100 yards.

between shots to simulate the shooting pace in competition. A six
o'clock wind gusted 0-10mph. The ammo stayed in the shade at an
ambient air temperature of 55°F
.
Ten-shot, 100-yard groups with the Creedmoor match ammunition
ran a consistent ¾ to 1 inch smaller than the Greek military surplus
M2 Ball I typically shoot in my rifle for practice. Expecting more from
any match grade ammo in a non-match grade rifle is overly optimistic. Results of a sample ten-shot string over a field chronograph were:
Highest velocity: 2756 fps
Lowest velocity: 2697 fps
Average velocity: 2723 fps
Extreme spread: 59.96 fps
Standard deviation: 10.34 fps
The low standard deviation tells the story of round-to-round
consistency during manufacture. Coupled with its excellent concentricity and very consistent bullet seating depth, Creedmoor's
ammunition shoots sub-MOA from a test barrel, as show on the
sample proof target below.
CMP offers the Creedmoor ammo by the 100-round case for $130.
Adding $10 for shipping makes the net price $1.40 per cartridge.
Creedmoor Sports sells a 50-round box for $68 or two boxes for $130,
plus shipping. For a bit more savings, Creedmoor has blemished
or mixed lot ammo for $62.50 per 50 rounds. For more information,
refer to both www.creedmoorsports.com and www.thecmp.org. *

▼ Concentricity of Creedmoor's match ammunition is excellent, with runout
averaging below .001"
