There is certainly truth to Edwards statements here. I've always wondered though it isn't more often true of cartridges with a strong competition base where the particulars of things like free-bore and barrel twist rate are closer to being
In other words, Federal GMM .308 works in most .308s because most .308 are built for that type of ammo. While the same might not be true of, .204 Ruger, for example.
On the other hand, it's undeniable that carefully crafted ammo will almost always be better than generic factory ammo. Still though, carefully crafted ammo that is specific to a guns twist rate and free-bore will probably be better than carefully crafted ammo that's NOT tailored to the gun, if the gun is as I mentioned chambered in a cartridge which has a less standardized setup.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
