    All I can say is I saw a lady shoot the Fed 69smk ammo and win a factory rifle class at 200yds. It came to a shoot off and the targets were 58cal paintballs. My 223 likes the 69smk bullet as well but I'm handloading.

    Well in my Bushmaster Special Varminter...

    It loves the Federal Gold Medal 69gr SMK (just over .5 moa).

    Likes the Black Hills 69gr and Hornady 75gr BTHP (just over .75 moa).

    HATES the Black Hills 68gr (over 1.5").

    Good luck.
