Saw this stated elsewhere, but don't remember exactly where. I know when SG Ammo gets a load of it in it moves fairly quick at .56-.85 per round depending upon qty. 2012, 2013, 2016 head stamps. The 20 rd. boxes @.85 per rd. There's only (1) review and that guy was buying more.
SG shows the following comparison whatever the devil "601.5 yard vert. std. deviation" is though the spread is signifcant:


Performance Test

NATO Spec
GGG GP11
601.5 yard vertical standard deviation
7.87 Inches
3.49 Inches
601.5 horizontal standard deviation
7.87 Inches
2.75 Inches
601.5 yard mean radius
9.84 Inches
3.86 Inches
Velocity standard deviation @ 26.25 yards
49.2 FPS
17.85 FPS

Actually, you probably read that here...the first batches, 2003ish, really shot tiny match like groups.

That said, the current batches ( haven't tried the 2016 ) shot more like typical ball groups.

It is still first rate ammo... just not as accurate as past loadings.

Art Luppino's results....different powder and charge weight in the newer stuff.
GGG+ tested..

As shown above I fired some GGG '16 and found it to be acceptable ball ammo accuracy, the PPU '16 shot better groups IMHO, I also ran some ol' Cavim ball and some of my 168 handload on the target for comparison.
