It's been a long couple of weeks post-op.

g2A has $15/shipping.
gunsmidwest is $9
gundock is $8
locked/loaded is standard $15| insured is $20
g4gguns is $9 standard|insured $11

These were all "standard shipping" unless noted, and I rounded up the nickle or penny to the next dollar. So if it said $7.95 I put $8.

so for a single brick, it was a $43 ties for gunsmidwest and gundock. Neither of which I'd ever heard of. /shrug.

Ammoseek shows a ton of places with a single brick for sale. Have at it, but I didn't find anything under about $46 there.

YMMV

iw


edit: I went ahead and ordered a brick from thegundock as they get good reviews on GB, and they are closer to me. $42.95 to test out a brick.. meh.
We'll see how it goes.

So I got the brick from Gundock last Friday and had a chance to use some over the weekend. Weather was beautiful! No wind, high 60s/low 70s.
The Eley white box was slit up the front and falling apart, but the pink plastic bag inside was fine. The vendor had wrapped the brick in extra cardboard INSIDE the bubble wrap as well so they knew it was cut up.

I was somewhat underwhelmed at the overall session, but consistency WAS excellent. Accuracy was similar to other mid- to high range target ammo. Tenex it was not. Not sure why I feel let down though... I'll have to think about it.

Point of aim was %%%% near dead-on where Aguila SP is going for me in the Savage mk2 FVT I tested in. (didn't have time to drag out the serious target rifles)
I shot about ~75 or so rounds. All went bang, though RIGHT near the end of the session I had 1 FTF that I rotated and it went off (and hit fine) and one other round that I had a HELL of a time getting the bolt to close on. The failure to fire happened about 5 or 6 rounds before the ends and the trigger was a little funny on the reset. I called it a day and kept the round to mic out and take a look at how nasty the chamber was. I had NOT cleaned it from my previous session only run a bore snake through and gave the chamber a quick swab out with some CLP on a q-tip before I started. Might have some gunk built up. Trigger is stock Savage.

I tried some in the brand new-to-me IZH 35m I picked up and it was fine. My eyes are old so I can't tell how well it shot, as I was black/black/black and was NOT holding a consistent bull for sure. Need a scope rail for a red dot. :-/

at $0.086/rnd it wasn't bad at all. In bulk it ought it be worthwhile if your gun likes it. I'll go test it in some Anshutz/etc and if it runs OK, add a case from CMP to my Xmas wish list.

Thanks for the post. I've been wondering about this one myself.

Eley Std Bulk

These posts on Eley Standard in the 500rnd bulk pack interested me. Not a CMP member yet (I hope there is not a test!) so I ordered 2 "bricks" (plastic bag) from an online store to test.

See pics of back to back 10rnd shots.
- CCI/MM vs. Eley Std 500/Blk
- CCI/SV vs. Eley Std 500/Blk

FYI. I'm not a part-time gunsmith or have any tack-drivers. The Savage A22 is just as it came out of the box and the 1959 Marlin 39a is just the 'old family 22".

FYI... LockedLoaded.com had Eley Std Bulk for $36.31/500bx. S&H was $15 for the 1st box and aprox 50 cents for every box after that. My delivered cost was 8.9 cents a shot. (I tested the their cart... about $20 for shipping 10 boxes.)

I bought a brick a while back, it did not shoot too bad for me, but at the price it was not worth it - for me anyway - to buy a case.

I have found SK Pistol to work excellent and my go-to ammo for accuracy out of my rifles.

when I go for plinking fun I will normally go Aguila or CCI SV which is better price wise for what I get for my needs

Thanks Dave. Im going to order some of the buds now. I tried going through the CMP but they wanted my military or VA ID, my DD214, my birth certificate, and a membership to the vfw or American legion. It seemed like alot of work for .7 a shell when this is .75.

I buy rifles from cmp and can order the ammo no problem but I wish they sold quantities less than 5000. I mean geeze what if my rifle doesn’t like it. How do y’all think this would stack up against Eley club?

Ditto on all counts.
So I did an ammo search and picked LockedLoaded and was able to buy just 2 bricks (bags) a good price rather than 5K rounds.
But I see that Buds would have saved a couple of $ that could have spent on beer. Rats.
