A few weeks ago, we told you that HPR released a new V-Max 60 grain match .223 and we were lucky enough to receive some from them. We had the chance to finally take it out to the range and see how it would perform. The results were great. The only thing I wish we had was a match grade .223 rifle to shoot it out of.
I used an AR15 I built, with a YHM suppressor and a 1.8-10x US Optics SN3. On a good day, my rifle will shoot 1.25 MOA (more or less 1 1/4 inches at a 100 yards), and on an equally good day, I’m a 1.5 MOA shooter.
The HPR Match 60 grain .223 ammo performed well beyond mine or my rifle’s ability. I was able to consistently shoot well within 2″ at 100 yards, even when hastily pulling the trigger to keep things interesting. The accuracy was great, and it very well should be for having the label ‘match” on it, but for me that’s not the real selling point.
This HPR ammo also features their “hyperclean” technology, and if you shoot suppressed, its a must use. Many shooters who have AR-15s and shoot them suppressed will tell you how particular the rifle can get with certain types of ammo. Unless my rifle is white glove clean, it’ll hiccup on less than premium ammo, usually at least once per every 25 or so rounds. With HPR’s Hyperclean ammo, I didn’t experience one malfunction (and never have). Also, with shooting HPR ammo, it cuts my cleaning time down to half compared to bargain boxes–I would say it is a must shoot ammo for anyone that shoots suppressed.
HPR ammo is available through Scottsdaleammo.com. I can tell you from experience that their shipping is extremely fast and their prices are more than reasonable considering the quality you’re getting. Fifty-Five grain .223 runs $21 a box and the match grade V-Max 60 grain we tested runs $29.
