    I spoke to the Lapua reps at Camp Perry a number of years ago regarding their Pistol Match and Pistol Match Special products. This is the info they gave me.

    The "Special" was introduced because the velocity did not produce enough force to cycle the bolt on the Walther GPS pistol. So they bumped the fps a bit and settled on about a 25fps increase (in a pistol barrel).

    Also, they use to advertise velocities on their .22 ammo boxes, but they have stopped this practice. Due to the fact that the velocities on the boxes were from 24" - 26" test barrels (not pistol barrels). In my case the SK Pistol Match had a listed velocity of 1033fps, though in actuality out of a pistol barrel it rated about 950fps.

    For my Hammerli's (208s') the Pistol Match lot I settled on produces 1/2" 10 shot 50 yard groups (still have a case and a half left of that for the long line).

    IMO, with any .22 ammo as stated in an earlier post, you always need to test lots in order to find what works best in you guns. I have tested newer lots of Pistol Match that do not average under 1".

    Well today, i took it out.. Using CCI SdV at first and then shot these with Center-X. For me and these targets it is more bout my still learning about how the rifle wants to be shot (and remembering that from shot to shot), you can see where i faultered on a few.

    The P stand for my having pulled the shot and the WC means that i missed the wind call on that shot.

    The rifle wants a lil shoulder and some slight hand pressure to shoot it.. it does not like free recoil.. if You do, it won't cycle correctly.. and you get a lot of vertical.

    Here is the second target, you can see where i just lost pace with how to shoot it.. got up and walked away from it for a few and then came back to it.

    got my case on Thursday, shot on Friday. The pistol match is impressive. I am not posting any targets because, I forgot the wind flags. Perhaps next time I shoot. I did shoot the ammo in three rifles, Anschutz 54 super match, Remington 40X and a auto, Compass lake A4. nilebartram

    I hope the lot you got from Grafs is better than the one I got, also when my test brick of pistol match arrived the outer box was perfect shape and the ammo carton and boxes were torn, smashed , never again from grafs

    I had one problem with Graf, ordered a bunch of 22lr to try and 1000 185gr 45cal bullets also. Outer box was crushed and the 45 bullets busted loose, all over the inside. I sent pictures of the outer box and the busted bullet carton. Talked to a Janet and she made sure that that would never happen. Have ordered 4 times since, evrything has been fine. I think the UPS people dropped the box. Now they shipped Fed EX . nilebartram

    My 10/22 so far really likes CCI SV, SK SP and Center-X, I took the old PRX tuner that was on it off and put a Harrells tuner on it with a JJ slide 20171002_163634.jpg
    And after finally figuring out how the rifle wants to be shot.. i am of firm belief that i will be putting my X-III Tim Miller build rifle up for sale.. it is in a Pippin stock and has a Muller barrel on it. Original older style Harrell's tuner with weight, set at the Purdy Rx number.. Trigger is a B & A
