Easily sub 1 MOA with Winchester ballistic Silvertip and Remington core-lokt in 55 and a few others in 62 or below but I haven't found anything over 62 that is an MOA round with this gun. In fairness, this wasn't sold as a match accuracy upper. But if someone has similar experience in a 1:8 and does want to recommend a heavy round, I'd love to hear it. I may be at the limits of what this particular upper can do, which is fine.

From what I know about those, you are. Still not bad considering what it is.

Reloading to fine tune will be the best option you have. Hodgdon's Varget powder does well from me.
