American Eagle Varmint & Predator 50 grain JHP

This was a quick walmart purchase on the way out to the range.  It kept in line with the 50ish grain testing.

Remember we are shooting a 24 inch krieger 1:7.7 twist and the Ballistic Advantage hanson profile 16 inch and Larue predatar 16 inch are both 1:8

Atmo for the day

The composite of groups shows a consistent ring of just over an Inch at 100 yards.  For the cost of the ammo this surprised me.  In my shooting notes I made a remark about the top right group stating that the 4th round felt off and was the round that is hard right.  It was likely a very small change but was felt as a mistake in pulling the trigger.
