GGG is a Lithuanian ammunitions company, and the abbreviation stands for Giraitės Ginkluotės Gamykla.

In year 2000 GGG was officially established and registered to build up and assemble factory within next 18 months. In 2001 the first trial batch of 7.62×39 mm cartridges for AK-47 was manufactured and in 2002 the official beginning of the production of the ball rounds were delivered to the customers.

In 2004 GGG cartridges in 5.56×45 mm and 7.62×51 mm were sent for the qualification at the NATO European Regional Tests Center and a year later they received the right to mark cartridges with the NATO interchangeability sign. About 90 % of the annual production is exported abroad.

In 2011 GGG decided to finalize development of .308 WIN ammunition designs and in 2012 .308 Win type cartridge started. In 2016 GGG started to make a .223REM type cartridges.

I have used their .223 Rem in 69 gr quite a lot, as it shoots like a laser. With one of their .308 Win SMK I have confirmed hits with my Ruger Precision Rifle out to 800 and 900 meters, in hard side winds.

LabRadar doing its thing for each bullet. It’s a great tool for capturing velocities in a test like this.

Below you can see the 5 shot groups for each cartridge:

147gr FMJ. V0 830

155 gr HPBT. V0 840

165 gr SBT. V0 791

168 gr HPBT. V0 804

175 gr HPBT. V0 786

180 gr HPBT. V0 767

180g SBT. V0 774

190g HPBT. V0 759

165g Tarvas (Lead Free Bullet). V0 825.

(.308 WIN 10,7g / 165 gr BT with Tarvas bullet)

The Tarvas is a Lead Free Bullet. Find out more here.

I have not included any prices as they are certain to differ from market to market.

I don’t think GGG are available in the USA. Please remember that TFB has readers in other continents as well.

    A nice test with a very nice range of ammunition. I've shot the 147 gr FMJ through a Tikka, and as I remember it, the group was at least as good as than the one displayed here.

    So Eric, which load was your favourite?
    I don't know squat about long range shooting, but it looks like
    your gun really liked the 155 hpbt, 165 sbt, 168 hpbt, 180 hpb.
    Would be nice to see exact measured data, but to me it looks like the 165 printed the best group.
    What's the rough prince range of this brand compared to other popular stuff here in the EU like Fiocchi, S&B, Geco etc.?

    Your rig is sick by the way, I saw an AX chassis in person a few months back
    and I liked it even more than the KRG models on display there.
