    Watch out for that paraffin wax, especially if shipped bulk in the summer. It happened to me.

    "Action" is new to me. I'm familiar with the BR choices of Tenex/EPS. Club and Target are pretty common on the silhouette range. I'm thinking I'll stick with my usual practice/competition ammunitions.

    Agreed. I got a case of Aguila Subsonic once that had "distributed" its bullet lube all over the unfired cases. Even in generously chambered factory sporters the lube build up after just a few rounds in the chamber would prevent reliable extraction of unfired rounds. No such issues with SK varieties.

    i had a link to it where someone was selling it cheap in bulk boxes.. almost the same price as this stuff that is being sold from the CMP, but going back now.. i can't find it, only due to that i didn't save the link for it.. but using Ammoseek, i have found it.. at a much higher price, this ammo seems to be "eco" friendly ammo..

    I liked what this guy did.. what showed interesting is that the pistol was hotter and more consistent than the rifle..



    Not saying that it is great shooting stuff.. i have not had much luck with any of their product.. the point being that the pistol match was better than the rifle in consistent velocities.. that should prove to be better on the target one would think.

    Thinking of how quickly things change, if this had been offered this time last year it probably would have sold out the first day. I never thought that we would ever see any 22 lr ammo this cheap again. Even if the lube has melted it takes nothing more than a quick wipe before putting it in the magazine or rifle. A lot of small bore silhouette shooters use SK and it is really greasy so standard practice is to give a quick wipe before loading.

    I find that it is all that grease on the SK and the Center-X that is causing my jams in my 10/22. So i tried a experiment with wiping it all off.. with the SK SP ammo i had.. it appeared that it started to shoot a lil better and the jams stopped too..
