Just like it is required to list the ingredients on processed food, they should also be required on ammo. Every rifle seems to have a favorite load to get the most out of it. If bullet weight and velocity were listed this would help in finding something that will work in your rifle and eliminate some trial and error. The only problem would be some would take this as fact and not as an average measurement. Life is not perfect.

It has been clearly demonstrated that any velocity on a box is meaningless, with the prime example being ELEY who no longer prints it on the boxes as it is so far off.

As for bullet weight, if it’s standard velocity lead it’s almost always 40 grain.

Don’t understand why not having velocity or bullet weight printed on boxes is such a big issue. After firing in excess of 350k rounds of .22 down range, the only truth in smallbore is that you must test for what is best in your rifle and not what’s printed on the box.

+1 benny; I am partial to SK and their parent Lapua ammo, but no matter the brand, every box will be slightly different in average MV. Jaia's excellent research has shown just how widely MV can vary from one sample of 50 rounds to the next, even within the same lot number. AFAIK, SK uses 40 grains as their standard default bullet in their products, though they do offer different bullet profiles in the same weight. As long as any RF ammo shows good consistency on the target, the bullet weight isn't terribly important to me(within the reasonable range of the barrel twist rate) long as it is all identical and is accurate. Am eagerly waiting to try some of their newly designed semi auto Match to be introduced this spring.
