Smile Eley Score!

Went to a Gun Show in Manhattan, KS this morning and found a brick of Eley 17Mach2 ammo for $80. It shoots extremely well in my rifle; my favorite squirrel rifle so I'm set for awhile.

that is a great price! Even with the glut of ammo now eley 17hm2 is still bringing good dollars at auctions. I bid on some at the last auction and quit at 11 dollars a box. I have plenty of eley on the shelf for the moment.

I still have a handful of bricks of the Eley & Remington, but for $80 a brick I would pickup a few more bricks.

I swore I would not buy anymore "old" ammo as you cant duplicate it and you may get some that had not been stored properly. The last Eley 17hm2 ammo I bought was $20 a box and split at least 40% of the cases, shot terrible. After reading this post the other day I decided I was going to give it a try again just yo see if my Volquartsen barrel shoots It better than the CCI and Hornady. A guy had 10 boxes still rapped in plastic and agreed to sell me 4 boxes at $10 A box to see if it shoots good in my 2 HM2 rifles. I figured the price was reasonable and I know it was stored properly. He also has a ER Shaw barrel and a PowerCustoms heavy bolt handle and spring for sale at $190, are they any good?

You would t happen to have the contact info about the ER Shaw barrel and bolt handle would you? Been thinking about doing a build.

I actually bought them for myself, put the ER Shaw barrel on my Summit action. I'm just going to keep the heavy bolt for now but may sell it later.

I did shoot the Eley ammo, not one split case with it in 3 different HM2 rifles but it shot about the same as to the the Hornady and CCI.
