Bullets are inconsistent
By Jeff M.
on Oct 21, 2016
I was looking for some 62grain cannelured bullets to develop loads for a new AR chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1:7 rifling. I found these and thought I would give them a try so I ordered 200 for testing and load development. Just came back from the range today. I must say that I am a little disappointed with these Armscor FMJ-BT 62grain cannelured bullets. During the seating process, I was never able to get a consistent COL. Out of only 30 cartridges loaded, I had a Cartridge Overall Length variance of over 15/1000s of an inch, all bullets from the same batch. For example, I was working for a COL of 2.250" but without changing the seating die, I had COLs from 2.244" to over 2.260" inches. To me, this indicates an very inconsistent ogive. As expected, the trip to the range with favorable weather conditions of 65 degrees F and wind of 3 mph and less, verified this inconsistency with 10 round groups at 25 yads printing between 2.5" to as large as 3.25". With identical loads using Hornady V-Max 60grain flat bottoms, I was able to print sub 1" groups. The Hornady bullets produced a 1/1000s inch variance in COL and I was able to easily seat most of them to my target COL of 2.250". I realize the cost of the Hornady V-Max bullets are nearly twice the price, but at only 25 yards, I can't believe these 3"+ groups from the Armscor bullets. Although I haven't weighed more than the first couple of bullets I pulled from the box to verify that they are 62 grain bullets prior to reloading, I suspect that there will be a substantial weight variance as well. I suppose these bullets would work well for breaking in new barrels, or plinking, but I wouldn't want to use them for hunting or target work. Just my experience, your mileage may vary.
9 bullets short

Finished loading 1991 rounds. Was 9 bullets short of 2000, I know this because I load 200 at a time. 2000 primers 1991 bullets. just want what I pay for, otherwise worth the money for range bullets. Will order again.
