So far mine likes Federal Blue box 55 gr. FMJ the best for accuracy. Shot groups are consistently around an inch. It doesn't like the federal jacketed soft point. I'm still looking for a hollow point and soft point that it likes.

it is my understanding that the target model does not differ from the ranch in regards to reciever cababilities and other than having no rear sight, they are both equal. The reason the .223 remington is specified for the target modle instead of NATO rounds is due to the addtion of the harmonic device on the end of the barrel which causes the rifle to develop higher pressure and thus pushes the overall configuration over the threshold of what Ruger feels is safe.
