Ammo question
 
Has anyone used Blackhills mk 262 mod 1 ammo? Saw it for the first time on TAC TV the other night. Thanks.

Yep. Shoots pretty accurate. It's what they hand out at the Fleet Matches each year so everyone is using the same ammo.

If memory serves me, this was developed specifically for the MK12 short to medium range sniper rifle used by SpecOps folks.

OK so were can I get my hands on some of this stuff. Any suggestions? I've looked at Midway and SSA so far, no luck.

Mk262 mod 0 is a 77gr bthp.

Mod 1 is a 77gr sierra matchking.



Remember that pesky Geneva convention thing and NATO crap that states our soldiers don't use HP ammo?



Anyways, its for sale.... but it ain't cheap.
