    I purchased a larue 5.56 UU. With Hornady frontier 68 gn and 75 gn, itís a .8Ē gun. The 75 gn ammo is at 2655 fps. Frontier is not match but it shoots well. I have some 77 gn BHM 5.56 ammo, but I havenít shot it yet.

    Any specific questions?

    Blessings.

    With Hornady Frontier 68gr ammo, Iíve had some interesting chrono numbers that lead me to think thereís a random proof load in every case. I used to like it alot.

    I recently shot a class in Utah, and several students brought the 75 gn Frontier 5.56. It shot well in many rifles to include mine, a proof carbon barreled rifle, and a radian rifle. I believe our max distances were around 660-700.

    My Larue is probably my most accurate rifle (not by much), but has slower MV than the rifle I took.

    Also, as to the 68 vs 75, According to Hornady’s site, the 68 gn and 75 gn have the same BC. I haven’t chronod the 68 gn yet.

    Blessings
