Question Eley Match Black Box question



Log in to see fewer ads
I just received a brick of Eley Match ammunition and there's no test velocity
information on it.
Lot # and machine # but no velocity.
Is this something new ?
My last brick a year ago had the velocity information printed on each box as well.

Regards,
Steve

It seems a new thing last year. 2017 batches of Match and Tenex had the mean velocity, 2018 batches don't.

I think if you input the lot number/date code into the Eley lot analyzer
it will output the specs for that batch of ammunition.

https://www.myeley.com/lot-analyser

Includes the factory test targets, MV average

Does not return any info for the cheaper grades of Eley.
Only the competition grade lots.

I tested a box of 50 Eley Remington Match (black box) Lot # 1115-02206 recently through my CZ455 Varmint and Shooting Chrony Beta:

Mean velocity 1,108 fps
Extreme Spread 74 fps
Standard Deviation 14.94 fps

Below the lot number is the number 1064...

The velocity indicated on the box is almost meaningless. I ran 50 rounds of black box through my chrony on Wednesday and I got;

1106.3 ave
31.6 es
9.3 sd

Velocity marked on the box is 1062.

Yep, unlikely what the test barrels at the factory produced will be what y'er rifle does.
I care about consistently tight muzzle velocities and consistent poi on target.
Factory test groups that wander around the point of aim indicate cartridge differences.
Individual 5 shot groups may be small, but the composite aggregate group can be quite large.
