    GECO ammunition

    Hi, Aoraki Ammunition is bringing in heaps of GECO ammo and I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this brand before? I've never heard of it.
    Cheers

    GECO is a quality German ammunition maker with a good production history that stretches back over 128 years. Excellent ammo!

    There is a gun reviewer on the UK based 'Shooting Show' he uses Geco in all his rifle tests. He says they are a consistent round. So cant be too bad.

    At a guess I think they want to sell out fast again to keep there financing costs low.

    People who buy soft point ammo often think buying 100 is buying in bulk where people who buy fmj think 5000 is

    Eg a club I'm a member of is ordering something like 100000 mixed rounds off them-all fmj

    It's a cheaper version of RWS. They have been in the RWS catalogue for many years. Excellent price - quality. Good brass. They also have a bonded bullet available.

    GECO: GECO


    The German website. The "PLUS" is the bonded bullet . "ZERO" is the lead free bullet.

    Like the principles (cost, qa, etc), but can you please not use facebook as your main advertising/sales page?

    Understand the commercial cost drivers, but alot of people don't want to go near facebook.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....
