What's your subsonic plinking bullet of choice

Post by brentwinkey » Fri Jan 31, 2020 3:51 pm

I'm looking for a subsonic bullet for plinking/play. I'm currently using 200gr smk but my stock is about out. Curious what your guys bullet of choice is. Cast or jacket and what weights. Need to feed the newest ar build so the lowest cost per bullet is key. Thanks Brent

ACME 245 or 265 DS special cast, Hi Tec coated. I've had better luck with the 245 in my AR.

I've been using Nosler 210gr RDF's when Shooter's Pro Shop offers them blemished, around a quarter apiece.

150gr FMJ work well and are fairly cheap. They should be easy to find as well.
