high end .22LR ammo

Postby Sir Henry » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:50 am

I’m about ready to switch my main .22LR ammo that I shoot.

The Federal is almost gone but more importantly the Norma Match-22 is gone. I have 50 rounds left out of two cases. I have a few bricks of the RWS Target Rifle and a full case of the SK Standard Plus. The Norma TAC-22 will be my new norm as I have three cases of it left. It shoots just like the Match-22.

That RWS Target stuff that you gave us as a gift on your visit was great stuff. Thanks, again. It's gone, now, but we may try to find some more. That's the problem with high grade match ammo. Not always easy to find in our area.

Try SK Standard Plus. It is made by Lapua, doesn't break the bank, and it is extremely accurate. What's not to like. :D

I got spoiled on good ammo. I’m not all that great of a shot but the ammo makes me look good.

During the last shortage good ammo was always available but at a high price. But high end stuff did not go up as much as the lesser grade ammo. Near the end the high end ammo was only a cent or two above the lower grade.

I was just feeling them and they are similar to Norma and RWS.

I think most .22's feel the same, but the shootin' can be totally different. ;)

Nothing. They are my favorite bullet when I just need to be within a foot of my target. :lol:

The European ammo is coated with what feels like grease. When I handle the ammo I try not to remove any yet my hands always end up greasy.
