I recently had some opportunity to benchshoot my DMR (Noveske chromed barrel) with 69 gr PPU HP Match.
69 gr PPU HP match runs around 50-55 cents a round if you look for good prices.
Almost affordable enough to run as a generalist real world load-out in an area (mountains, plains?) where you value accuracy.
I did not expect Black Hills like accuracy but what I got was very very close.
My 5 round groups from a bench (but not a clamp?) through this 1 in 7 Noveske barrel , at 90F into a headwind on a 300 m target again and again.
Generally w/o flyers (except one time which was my fault).
Groups were approx 2- 2.7 inch which equals 0.7-0.9 MOA
A chrome lined barrel w/o a bench clamp (even a scoped Noveske) pretty much tops out at this level of accuracy.. even with the very best of ammo, so this was an excellent performance IMO.
Also I had no short cycling at all, even though my DMR is one of my tighter ARs when it comes to gas tuning.
This speaks well for the powder load in this ammo.
– Easily accurate enough for DMR role.
– Affordable enough, to shoot often to get good and to stash it relatively deep.
I fully recommend this ammo for those who are looking for an affordable round to feed a DMR role, no need to pay nearly a dollar a round for Mk262 clones.August 13, 2015 at 9:45 pm #19908PinkyParticipant
Great review…have you tried the PPU 75gr?
Related, I have a stash of the CBC 77gr OTM (Mk262 mod 1 clone) that can be found at around 60 cents per round, but have yet to test for accuracy. Any experience?

I’m aware of the 75 gr PPU but I already have an amount of 69 gr and I dont want to confuse my zero and stick w/ one also one of my DMRs is a 1 in 9 barreled one.
In the right barrel your 77 gr ammo should also be very accurate but I have no practical experience with it.August 18, 2015 at 9:15 pm #20084AnonymousInactive
