Winchester 230gr Flat Nose FMJ “Select Grade”


While gold bricking around my pal’s gun shop a couple weeks ago I saw this Winchester Select Grade ammo and was curious enough to actually pay for a box of ammo just to see what it would do.

I shot the ammo in 5 round groups from a sand bag and bench at 20 yards. I used 2 different guns. My Colt rail gun and the new series 70 competition model.

Those two groups above from the rail gun.

Group below from the series 70 competition model.

It’s not too bad. Not good enough to be called Match Ammo, but good enough to justify the dubious label thought up by Press & Propaganda boys as “select grade.” The price is a little high though as all ammo is in these strange days.
