cci gamepoint ammo?



Log in to see fewer ads
Ok, more ammo questions....
Having trouble finding my preffered ammo, cci 40 grain hollow points, I have a few boxes but wanted to stock up a bit.
Nearest I could find was cci 40 grain gamepoint ammo, I mostly shoot foxes and while I think this ammo will be a little "hard" for the job, its better than using fmj ammo I guess?
Anyone have experience with this exact ammo on coyotes (nearest thing in America to our foxes here in Australia)?
I still have 3 boxes of cci hollow points so Im ok for a while but have just bought 4 boxes of gamepoint...will test for accuracy at the range next week, Im guessing they will shoot ok, just curious on their performance on soft skinned game?
Thanks, Neil

The CCI maxi mag hp's are near on impossible to find here in NZ at the moment as well. One shop I buy from has said that the last couple of times they ordered it they were supplied the game point instead, no explanation. I purchased 1 box to test but haven't run out of the HP yet so can't really comment. Have a read a few comments elsewhere that it isn't as accurate as the HP but I guess it depends on the rifle.

Yep, they didnt group well, best performing ammo in my rifle is 40 grain cci hollow points or 40 grain winchester hollow points...both hard to find.
30 grain hornady shot pretty well too but they are impossible to find

Can you locate Federal 30 gr HP? They are very accurate in my RAR and for foxes they should work fine.

At a large gunshop on the weekend and they had a new shipment of cci maxi-mag 40gr jhp. New price is $309/500 rnd or $31/50rd box..... (that's ~ $21.60 usd).

Oh, as a side note (not rimfire), they had a Barrett .50 on sale.
$39,999.

I got some cci JHP, the 24 variety, enough to last me a long time, paid heavily for it but wont need to worry about ammo for a few years ( I dont shoot my magnum for anything but hunting, mostly foxes)

Wow, your import duties are 9x the retail price? Ouch... still, your govt. must LOVE you shooters!

Keep the faith, & I understand the govt. down there has a plan to eradicate some of the introduced species [feral cats, rats, etc.] that are wreaking havoc on the native wildlife. See if you can coax the govt. to supply free ammo, or offer a duty-free shop in the areas where they're trying to get rid of the vermin? It's a thought...

Hmm, don't want to get political but I think with the current public opinion, they would be happy to get rid of the shooters as well.

I've never had maxi-mags group well, out of any gun. But the hornady v-Max's shoot awesome (both CCI and hornady brand).

Yes indeed, every firearm is different.
My savage 93FSS threw the V-Max all over the place. The only thing that shot better than the CCI Maxi-mag jhp in mine was the equivalent loading from Remington, but I'm not going to pay $45nzd ($31.65usd) per 50rnds.
