In 2017, Ranger contracted with SwRI to conduct blind testing of one caliber of Ranger's Harmonically Tuned Ammunition against a wide variety of other brands including "Match Grade" varieties. The test platform was a generic off-the-shelf AR-15 type rifle. All testing was conducted at SwRI's remote test facility located near Hondo, TX, on 16 October 2017.
Their conclusion was that Ranger's accuracy exceeded all other ammunition by an overwhelming margin.
Overall, Ranger ammunition had a mean group size of 0.145" with a mean MOA of just 0.138".
