    pretty lofty claim, I wish them luck

    "According to the company's website, Ranger Scientific has exclusive patent pending technology to mass-produce rifle ammunition that's more than twice the accuracy of the highest quality "match grade" ammunition."

    I'd rather they spend their money increasing their production capacity than attempting to double the accuracy of contemporary .22 LR ammo. How about they keep current accuracy standards and double their output quantity instead? [:D]
