Cost me $3.21/box of 50 delivered to Kentucky.

Went out to my home range today and tried out 2 boxes in the Kidd barreled Ruger and they shot very very well.
If you would have ordered 31 Rec Packs instead, you would have received free shipping. Assuming you aren't charged tax like I wasn't, that comes to $2.75 a fifty round box, or for a brick equivalent of $27.50. That's the delivered price, no extras. That's hard to beat for that quality of ammo.

I wish I could have ordered 20 more but being retired and on a fixed income 20 was all I could handle this month. Have to see what next month will allow.

6000 rounds will last me quite a while the way I shoot but you can never have too much ammo.

Well, I ordered 3 boxes of ďbulkĒ 300 round packs the other week and I couldnít find my order in my email so on Friday I ordered 5 more boxes and low and behold after I ordered the 5 more boxes. The 3 boxes showed up

Might buy another 5-10 boxes this week. Hard to pass this up for good multipurpose ammo

Did the ammo in your 300 round pack come loose in a plastic "bulk" bag?
Or were they in packaged in individual boxes of 50 with lot #'s on each box like my last order was?

Everyone I've talked to say they are no different than the bricks we both bought a while back, except they have six fifty round plastic slides in a cardboard box.

Shooting tomorrow, after cleaning up the yard today from 60 mph winds over the weekend. Gonna shoot another 120 rounds of the Action again, before "thinking" about making another purchase. Still have a fair amount of time as there's still 1250 rec packs in stock.

Exactly. They have 6-50 round boxes in them. So ďbulkĒ is a misnomer..... now in a few months when these are gone and they get the new stuff they should be in bags *facepalm*

Late to the thread!

I ordered 6-300 packs on May 11. They sent Lot #3117-40012. I started shooting some in my CZs, and got more flyers than I anticipated at 100yds. I wondered if it was the Ammo, the Rifles, or the Nut behind the Buttstock. I got a bug in my butt and decided to weight separate some to see the spread and the curve of them. One thing I found during this was that there was only 49 rounds in one of the boxes! As I had shot 1 1/2 boxes, I had (I thought) 1725 rounds left. In doing this with my Dillon Determinator scale, I found the box with the missing round, and also I dropped one other round and did not find it until later after I was done with the project. Here are the results...
GRAINS # ROUNDS
51.4 - 1
51.8 - 1
52.3/52.4- 23
52.5 - 132
52.6 - 233
52.7 - 218
52.8 - 251
52.9 - 253
53.0 - 235
53.1 - 88
53.2 - 185
53.3/53.4 - 101
53.5 - 2
1723 ROUNDS
I shot 100yds with the 52.7 loading in my 1945 Remington 513T and managed 196-8x on the TQ-4(P) targets with the Redfield sights. I'll go again with it next Sunday at a local Bench match in the same gun.

I emailed Killough about the missing round with pictures, and got replies that they would tell their QA about it. No offer of replacement though. These are my own findings and I list them here just as information. If I had a question, I did reweigh the round again. If the scale didn't zero, I ran it again, also.

Interesting - have you ever completed a similar exercise with higher quality ammo. Would be curious how the weight spread measures up.

Loving the negative opinions

Because I love this ammo and want folks to shy away from it so as to not deplete the inventories at killoughís! Iíve been watching this thread and shudder at all the reports about how well it shoots and how itís a better CCI SV. When I get a chance Iím going to order 2 cases for my Rugers and Buckmarks to shoot. Shooting in 2 pistol leagues and practice means they donít hang around my shelf long.

Bottom line is: PLEASE buy Eley Target, Match, or Tenex but leave the Action for us seniors on a fixed income.

All this is meant as sarcasm so donít get you underwear in a wad. I think itís great ammo and am happy to see others get good results with it.

Happy 4th of July to all!!!!

I did some Center X, and it came out to within !/2 a grain. You pay for consistancy! I tried some older Winchester High Velocity and a little oldRemington Green tag, and they were all over the place.

Yep'ers. Eley Action is not Center X, Tenex or a dozen other high end and costly 22lr ammo.

But it shoots better than CCI-SV and costs less (my own results and apparently that of others in this thread.) So I don't need to see chart-paper about this ammo... target-paper full of holes is all I needed.

Some details:
- Eley Action 40gr appears to be discontinued and it has a VG close out sale price at just one seller... or it would not be such a contender at the moment.
- For me, Eley Action 40 did not always beat CCI-SV at the various ranges. But neither did it have the "always one flyer" that I seem to get with CCI-SV. So I called it in favor of Eley Action.

Fewer than 1,000 left at the seller! That's partly my fault.

Tom ,
When you do this and shoot the weights together, do you still get the flyers?? And does it help consistency???
Thanks Iím still learning the Rimfire game..

I think less of them or less egregious ones....

As some or most of the gurus here and elsewhere say It's a waste of time due to there being multiple reasons for the weight variation, doing this has gone to the wayside. My view is that if I can get flyers to stay in the 10 ring instead of the 9, 8, or 7 ring, it doesn't hurt! If you hit one of the really light or heavy ones in a string that was looking good, your group or score goes to the dogs! Also, it goes in the mix with the quality of guns and optics and rests. We have one guy I shoot with who does the Rim thickness separation instead.
