You need an audio sensor to pick up the 22lr muzzle report?
That could get kinda hinky at a busy range, wouldn't it?

Yup agree. I researched a little and have a few pointers to try next time I am out again. Unfortunately I will not be able to get to the range again for at least 4 weeks due to business travel.

Delivery arrived...Eley Practice 100, Eley Action and Eley Team.
Multiple boxes of each, enough to see how they do at 200 yards.
It was a bit of a job to find all three at the same retailer at a decent price/shipping.
Some of the sites had some rather extravagant pricing and shipping costs.

I understand
My range only goes to about 115 Yards to the berm . Iím the guy with the open sighted Ruger Bisley 22lr SS shooting at empty 3/4 gallon almond milk jugs . a scope would make it too easy and Iíd get bored .
I look forward to your results .

Kirby, with the iron sights on my single six,
I'm lucky if I keep them all on the 24 inch square backer at 25 yards.
I totally lack the ability to use iron sights.

My optometrist put it quite succinctly...

Not only do I need glasses, so do my firearms.

Eley Action 40 grain 22lr rated 1090 fps

CZ 455 Varmint, Lilja barrel, Sinclair bipod


Visual inspection shows minor dents and dings to the bullet noses
and a few chips in the drive bands, chronograph shows very decent ES.



Results from the first 50



Not bad with a headwind from my 10 to 11 o'clock




Inspection of the second box showed a few more dents and dings,
chronograph numbers just a bit bigger ES. Wind picked up and it shows.
Increased turbulence tumbling across the range made for much larger spread.




Out of 100 cartridges sent, 9 failed to fire on the first try.
All fired on the second or third try after extracting and rotating to a new section of rim.



Sent some SK Magazine at the steel plates after trying the Eley Action,
no fail to fires with the SK, must have been insufficient primer in the rim of the Eley cartridges.

...
Shoot just for the cap. Or who can make the smallest nick on the side for a slow leak.

I hung some junk off of 2x4 for plinking one time... my friend got his CZ back out and shot out the nail heads holding the targets. He was rather pleased with himself.

Eley Team 40 grain 22lr rated 1085 fps

CZ 455 Varmint, Lilja barrel, Sinclair bipod




Flat nose 40 grain with a dimple on top, but looking at the cartridges something bothered me.
Not many dents or dings and the drive bands looked ok, but something was off.
It wasn't until I rolled a few cartridges on a flat surface that I figured out what it was.
Not all the flats were square to the center line of the cartridge, some were tilted
and others had extra bumps at the edges of the flats. Most were very symmetrical
but enough were oddly shaped to prevent them from being Eley's best.



The second box had the same scattered odd cartridges.
Most appeared to be high quality production, but a few had visible differences.





Chronograph numbers were decent, but the 6 fail to fires were annoying.
Extracted, rotated, rechambered, all went bang on the second try.
Sent some antique Tenex afterwards, all went bang on the first try.
Another batch of Eley production with sections of the rim without primer.

Hey J-- Extreme spread of 23fps?? And you, the "J-man" hisself, casually calls that "decent" Man, if those bullets had not had those defects, this stuff might have been killer....

TS, I find that understatement can sometimes be more effective than being blatantly obvious.

I didnít say I hit them every time. I said I shoot at them . . I do hit them every once in awhile .
I enjoy the looks I get from the other shooters . Especially when the dust flies around my milk jug .

Going for understatement also, Kirby?

Handed another partial box of antique Tenex to chronograph.
It had been in the range box on a shelf for a few years.
Visible corrosion on the brass and oxidized lubricant.

Tenex 12 Dot circa 1975, 40 grain 22lr

455 Varmint, Lilja, Sinclair



Again decent results except for that one stray that dropped in low.
Checked the chronograph after it hit, sure enough, way lower mv, 1045 fps.
