Norma had a pretty good sale on this, so I bought a bit.
Has anyone had any experience with it? I can't find any reviews on the web.
I am shooting a custom 700 with a Schneider barrel, 1-11.5 twist, .3077 bore.

If you shoot it at a target, you should be able to find out how well (or not) it works; all on your own. By your own statement, you bought it and paid for it. If someone reports bad results, what is your plan? Just don't shoot it? Sheesh. GD

If it's the stuff that appears to be loaded with 175 SMKs, I'd be interested to hear the report. Looks like you can get it for about what Fed GMM goes for and the brass should be better.

I agree it's kind of putting the cart in front of the horse. I am not going to be able to shoot any time soon and I had a guy offer me a pretty good profit on it.

The choice then is; do you want the ammo or do you want the money? Nobody can tell you how it shoots in your rifle. Your choice if you want to shoot the ammo or sell the ammo and do something else. GD

Ok, so back to the original question. Aside from the fact I will know how my rifle likes it once I shoot it, has anybody had any experience with this ammo?

No idea if the OP is still around, but just an update on this ammo: seems like a 175 SMK in Norma brass.

It's very slow: 2600 fps in a 26", 2530 fps in a 20"

In my 26" rifle it's a legit replacement for FGMM, (just 130 fps slower). About 1/3 MOA.

In the 20", I guess it's fully out of the node and shoots 2.5 MOA. That rifle shoots FGMM and even M118LR pretty well, but both of those loads run at 2600 from that barrel.

Very low ES in both rifles.

Possibly worth trying, depending on your needs.
