Quick Test at the Range

Lake Martin Machine Gun has target stands and a variety of steel at 100 yards and 200 yards, perfect to get a feel for this new ammunition. I picked up two boxes from different lots and spent an afternoon testing with my personal Ruger Precision. Ammo was purchased myself at no discount. Looking at the ammunition, the cases are new Peterson brass and all projectiles have been seated evenly. During my shooting, I noticed no discernible deviations with the ammunition.

After setting my zero and warming up with a couple groups, I put two groups on paper. One five shot group at 200 yards and another 3 shot group at 100 yards. The 200 yard group is below half MOA with three of the 5 rounds creating one ragged center hole. This is a personal best for myself and this rifle. Beyond impressed. The 100 yard group is roughly half MOA. By this point the suppressor was creating a good amount of heat distortion through my optic. I need a suppressor cover so I won’t be able to use that excuse anymore.

Final Thoughts

For a current asking price of $33.00 for a box of 20 rounds, this 6.5 Creedmoor from Spark Munitions is a solid deal. I will be picking more up and heading to a long distance range soon. The consistency and accuracy I was able to get was impressive. Spark Munitions is worth a look the next time you are picking up some ammo. Interested in getting some for yourself?
