Update 17 m2 vnt

I finally got some time to put CCI 17 m2 vnt to the test. Very pleased with the accuracy results. Most 5 shot groups at 50 yds from a sand bag rest came in at about .5 inch. Some slightly smaller and a few stretched out to 5/8.
Interesting that they decided to nickel plate the shell cases, possibly to strengthen them to avoid splitting.

I have a Kimber Classic Varmint that has always favored CCI branded ammo over everything else even Eley.
Im hoping for slightly better groups on a day with no wind.

OK. I've been following this thread and. recently bought 2 boxes of the VNT from SWFA. Great price and with other things I bought, the shipping was not bad. Yesterday I went to the range with my Anschutz 1502 to test it at 50 yds. First 5-shot group was good, maybe .5". Second 5-shot group not so good, 2 flyers out about 1.5". Third 5-shot group had 2 shots near the bullseye and 3 shots no where to be found. For a minute I thought I was shooting same hole groups. Walked to the target and found only 2 holes. So I shifted to a large 11"-14" target and aimed at the center bullseye. The first shot was near center and the next 4 were not even on paper. I began to suspect that my scope had developed a problem. I tried another group with no holes even close to the point of aim. Convinced that the scope had a problem, I returned to the range today with other tried and true ammo. Shot 6 different groups with 3 different ammos. I finished with a 10-shot group with the CCI VNT.....5 holes were acceptable and 5 were off the paper. It was NOT the scope. Something was seriously wrong with this batch of ammo. I have a second box but won't waste my time shooting it. I'll contact CCI to let them know. I've shot rimfires for 60+ years and have never had an experience like this. It is unlikely that I would ever buy more of this stuff.
