Why ask now? Isn't this a question you should have asked before making the purchase?

I haven't used it, but I have used the AE XM193, and for plinking it is fine, although not that accurate, perhaps 2 1/2 MOA out of my RRA 5.56.

What twist is your barrel? 75 grain ammo might be a bit heavy if you're using a 1:9 twist rate.

Tree, if your twist is 1:9 I'd be wary of using 75gr ammo. Of course go ahead and try 20 rounds but don't buy in quantity until you know how your barrel handles it.

My twist is a 1:7

Well you should be good to go. Definitely try out a small quantity to see how it works with your barrel. What someone else has to say about it could be miles apart from what you find out.

I know your OP said you had already ordered it but I do apologize for my statement. There has been a spike in "I purchased this, now give me your advice" threads as of late. I let the frustration get the best of me.

I ran a couple boxes of their 69 grain through an 18" 1:7 w/ decent results.

Keep in mind that every barrel and rifle is just a bit different because of manufacturing specs. Your best bet is to try a small amount of different types of ammo until you find what YOUR rifle likes best. Good luck and happy shooting.

I tried 7 different types. The Wolf was nice but the Hornaday was better.
