    Try Belmont Ammunition in Wanganui. I've used their 60gr before and it was very accurate out of both 1:8 & 1:12 twist.

    I run 55gr PPU in my CZ and it loves it, 1/2" @ 100. You can get 5 pkt's for under $100 frequently

    Isn't aorakis all fmj? I use Belmont 55gr soft points, they go good. Seems a bit hard to find 60+ grain hunting ammo

    Federal Power Shok (blue box) 64 gr soft point
    Winchester Super X 64 gr power point

    I buy at least 3 packets at a time to get a better deal. Best of all is to hit up your gunshop for a deal on a case of 10 packets=200 rounds.

    The only cheaper option is Barnaul 62 gr soft point. Steel case with steel jacketed projectile I think. Sold by Gun City, Gunworks, Russianz and others.
