Anyone ever shoot?:

Federal Gold Medal 223 Remington Ammo 77 Grain Sierra MatchKing Hollow Point​

Got a few cases coming as I have very very little match grade stuff. Reviews seem solid.
I can’t speak to the whole package but that Sierra 77 grain Match King is a very good bullet.

I’ve run the IMI 5.56x45mm 77 Grain Razor Core which uses the Sierra MatchKing Hollow Point in my Sig MCX Virtus Patrol with a 1:7 twist and found it to be very accurate. I would think it would perform as well in the Federal Gold Medal configuration. I do think it works best in a 1:7 barrel, I can say it definitely sucked in my 1:9 twist Colt AR (tried it there just for fun).

One review stated just that with the 1:9 also. I have a few variants so I’ll try them out.....when the ammo futures are fulfilled 😁

Has anyone seen TS putting any good quality 308 up recently? I see it in (limited) stock on a couple of other sites but everything is pretty well over $2/rd, closer to $3 with shipping in some cases. And if you have any and are local to the south shore or Boston I'd be happy to trade for a few boxes.

It would have been nice if the Federal Pres would address pricing - where are the big markups being added? Factory price increase? Distributor? Retail?
