    Around taupo- bulk eley match ammo 22lr

    Anyone around these ways keen to split 5000 round of 22 ammo?
    Freight is free when buying a 5000 slab

    Cost is $1750 for 5000 rounds but happy to split into 1/3ís or even 1/4ís

    Its actually not a bad price for this quality of ammo - it'd be the last thing I'd fling at a bunny, but if you want good results then its as good as is readily available these days, if I was handy I'd be in like flynn!

    The brand and the name of the line are a bit of a give away......

    I presume this is coming from Shooting Stuff? I buy all my RF ammo off them.
    I see they are also selling mixed lots of 5000 Eley Match for $1550.
    Gives you a chance to try different lots. Only trouble is if you find a good lot you won't be able to get any more of that lot.

    I keep the local Smallbore amourer in Vension and in return I get a very useful service - if you ask nicely they will let you try various lots of ammo (such as they have in stock) and the best bit, if you find a lot that really shoots, they have a nationwide email service between all the clubs to scrounge up any other stashes of the desired lot . . . .a fantastic resource!

    Yip, I sort of thought that was the case.

    How does one find the specs of ammo?? i.e. cartridge dia??

    Many years ago in a fit of exuberance, and pissed off with the accuracy of my expensive 10/22 I had a tgt bull barrel fitted. Bloody accurate, but very bloody finicky on what ammo it would not jam continually on. In the end I took a micrometer to the Sika show(when it was run at the swimming pool), and tested a bunch of ammo on offer. Only found one that was about 2 thou smaller in dia than the rest, so bought 500 rounds (should have bought 5000!!!). It functioned flawlessly and accurately, but only on that ammo.

    I'll try and find the last remaining half box of ammo and measure, to find the ideal diameter. And see if this Eley tgt stuff is around the same spec.

    Yea itíll be coming form shooting stuff. Itís a far better price than most anywhere else anyway

    Amazingly consistent ammo in the batches Iíve tried, really comes into its own past 75m

    Have got one taker for one brick, Will see who else is keen otherwise will flag the idea I think

    Eley Match is the second or third best 22 ammo in the world. @Gillie has done more extensive testing at longer range and has a different opinion I think.
    I use it in my hunting 22 for range shooting. I have shot rabbits with it - works OK if you go for the head.

    It used to be you could go on line and enter the batch you were interested in and see its performance in several representative barrels. I found the comparison between that, Club and Eley sub sonic pretty well correlated with my own findings. Some Club is like Match and some batches are pretty mediocre.
    @kiwi303 thanks for the offer, it can be quite hard to obtain a lot of the time. I'm not shooting enough of it to justify a bigger stock up just now.

    No worries mate.

    I’ve seen pretty unreal ES (around 20) and some stupid small groups even at 100 with it. I haven’t batch tested yet but I do intend to.

    It does kill pretty well but I try to use cheaper stuff on vermin…
