I've never tried. But I would not believe factory ammo would be consistent enough. You're better off handoading, so you get the same performance every time. There is "match" ammo. This should be more consistent. But, calibers will be very limited.

I have a factory Remington 700 Classic in 300 Weatherby that shoots Remington 180 gr. ammo better than anything I have loaded. It is a 1/2 inch rifle with this load and nothing else I have tried can do this consistently. I've had this rifle for 16 years and I have tried god knows how many loads but the factory ammo still does it. This is not a LR rifle so I never kept track of ES or SD and I'm sure there is a load out there but I quit trying to find it.
