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?
