Does anyone shoot this kind of ammo at Angeles Range? I don't see why they wouldn't allow it...

Thinking about picking up 1000 rounds to send through the Remington 700...anyone experience any problems shooting this stuff through their bolt gun? The website says it's accurate out to 320 yards, but most of the reviews say it's only accurate up to 100 yds. Will it leave any type of plastic residue in the barrel that's hard(er) to remove?

Seems like a cheap way to punch some paper. Go for it.

I just got the same ammo, but I haven't shot it yet. My understanding from folks on HKPro and militaryfirearm is that it will leave a little plastic fouling, but it's not a big deal to clean off and it leaves very little scum behind (acts like a lubricant). Normal cleaning will remove it. It's very light recoiling and intended to replace the more expensive .22 caliber conversion kits that used to be fitted inside of the G3 rifle (a tube fit within the bore of the barrel, a chamber and special bolt carrier were used) for training purposes. The bolt carrier was replaced with a light carrier than has no locking rollers so that the action operates on straight (rather than mechanically delayed) recoil.

It will recoil like a .22 LR, which in a heavy rifle will be a light tap to the shoulder. As you might expect, it's also not terribly loud, but hearing protection is still advised.

This stuff is not too bad. We use it in our PTR rifles with the lightweight bolt and it actually functions in semi auto. Its fairly powerful and goes thru 3/4" ply with power to spare. Accuracy is around 4" unless its windy, but is deadly on soda cans.
With over 1500 rds fired, it works in every rifle we tried. It has a smaller rim and won't extract from some rifles, but will fall out of the chamber if you point the muzzle up. It makes a big flash in low light too.

I've shot it at 50 yds and got about 3" groups but at 100 yds it was all over th paper. I'm looking forward to plinking with it at pop cans and plastic milk jugs in the desert. Seems like perfect plinking ammo, no long range hazard.
