    Rimfire ammo for testing

    Gidday, I'm on the lookout for some part boxes (or a full 50 round box) of both 22LR and 17hmr ammo to try out in my Sako Quad barrels. I have gathered quite a few different 22LR lots but would like to try some SK ammo and CCI SV particularly.

    In 17hmr I'd like to try some CCI A17.

    Of course I'm happy to pay full retail!

    Hopefully I'll have my Quad back next weekend and the weather is fine for testing. I'll post the results up here when I get done.

    This is what I have so far...

    You wanna play swapsies

    I have some SK in 3 flavours

    Magazine, Standard and Rifle match.

    I could do a 1/2 box of each of standard and the rifle match, and 50 or 100 of the magazine.

    I would be interested to try some Eley and RWS types

    Where did you manage to get Ho.d of the stuff you have? Went round chch looking for target ammo a few months ago and no one had any so I gave up on the idea and stuck with cci subs as they work

    I reckon we could work something out @johnd. My plan was to fire 4 groups of 5 with each type of ammo. Most of the boxes I have contain 35 rounds, so could spare 15. The exceptions are Eley Match, I could spare 25, and Eley Edge, I only have 12 rounds so can't spare any of these.

He had fired 15 from each box for testing. I'm sure he'll be able to help out with where he got it

    Shootingstuff
    Belmont Ammunition – Belmont Ammunition

    Shooting Stuff sells RWS and Eley along with a few other makes, Belmont sells Lapua and SK.
    Both will ship with the appropriate paper work, I found the SK Rifle match to offer exceptional accuracy for the price.
