    Four different brands of ammo at 200, 300, and 600 yds using a PTR 91 and iron sights

    The rifle:

    With an HK 1200 meter rear sight:

    All of the shooting was done off of a table with a rest.

    The ammunition:

    Malaysian surplus

    German surplus

    Federal Premium Gold Medal Match and PPU Match

    At 200 yds the X-Ring is 3”, the 10 Ring is 7”, the 9 Ring is 13”, and the 8 Ring is 19”.
    1st with a score of 101.1 and two X-Rings was the Federal:


    2nd with a score of 97.8 and one X-Ring was the German:


    The Malaysian came in 3rd with a score of 96.8 and one X-Ring:

    And, the PPU Match was last with score of 96.2:


    The Ring diameters at 300 yds are the same as the diameters at 200 yds, with the 7 Ring being 25” and the 6 Ring is 31 “.
    1st was the Federal again with a score of 93.5 and two X-Rings:

    Close-up:


    The Malaysian moved to 2nd with a score of 92.9 and one X-Ring:


    The PPU was 3rd at 300 yds with a score of 91.5:


    And, the German came in last with a score of 90.4:


    Next was my very first time ever shooting at 600 yds. At that distance the X-Ring is 6”, the 10 Ring is 12”, the 9 Ring is 18”, the 8 Ring is 24”, the 7 Ring is 36”, the 6 Ring is 48”, and the 5 Ring is 60".



    I shot two strings of 10 rounds of each brand of ammunition, starting with the Malaysian ammo. It seemed to be shooting high, and ended up in 3rd place on the first string with a score of 72.7:


    Next was the German surplus, and even though my first shot didn’t register on the target at all (it seemed to be shooting high also), the ammo still came in 2nd in the first string with a score of 78:


    The PPU Match ammo was next and it came in 1st in the first string with a score of 86.6 with one X-Ring:

    It didn’t seem to have the problem with bullet rise like the Malaysian and German ammunitions did.

    I shot the Federal last in the first string at 600 yds and that’s where it ended up. I only got eight of ten shots in the scoring area (apparently) for a score of 67.2:


    I started with the Malaysian surplus again for the second string at 600 yds. Once again I apparently had one round outside of the scoring area, so that dropped the ammunition to 4th with a score of 74.1:


    Next was the German surplus and it registered its only 1st place of the day with a score of 83.4:


    The PPU Match ammo was third in the rotation again, but dropped to 2nd place with a score of 79.4:


    And the Federal Premium Gold Medal Match ammunition was a surprising 3rd place with a score of 79.3 and one X-Ring:



    Oh, and one final comment: I am

    I am a bit surprised at the PPU....more reason to buy more.....

    for the cost difference in the PPU and the FGMM.....I would buy the PPU all day for the price difference.....and I LOVE the FGMM....

    GREAT POST

    Thanks. I had the shirts printed. I saw someone on Youtube with a similar shirt (it had the M1 front post), so I went online and found the G3 sight picture.
