NRAA Factory Ammo Velocity

#1 Postby pjifl » Fri Sep 29, 2017 10:04 am

It is years since I had anything to do with the NRAA Supplied Factory Ammo.

Does anyone have measurements of what Velocity can be expected from this stuff ?
Both 308 and 223.
I am not really interested in knowing its quality, just the typical Velocity and bullet used.

hi there,
now i know you would have looked more than twice at those readings but just can't imagine the nraa producing a bullet that does that speed.
maybe they are cost saving ?

I'd be interested to know if anyone knows what was the muzzle velocity of the old ADI ammo with the 144gn FMJBT projectile.

Factory Specification was 2750 f/s measured at 77 feet from muzzle in a 26" barrel. That would put it at around 2800 f/s at the muzzle in a 26" barrel.
