i have an h-r 5200-what i would advise is determine what range you like 100 or 50 yd. then what i do is bring in my test pak--a box of every companies ammo,eley team,tenex,wolf match extra,fiocchi match extra,then throw in rem.target,cci target,winchester target etc.,i hope you get lucky with inexpensive stuff--i never have--mark your targets with the brand,and have fun-you will soon see what your rifle likes.

I have the M12 which I believe is the military trainer version of the 5200. This rifle is stone stock with a Harrel tuner and it loves Lapua Midas+, Center-X and Eley Black Box. This rifle shoots consistently in the high 240's with an occasional 250 on the IR-50/50 target.
