Federal 525 bulk pack

Log in to see fewer ads
Had a chance to go to the range today and shoot my S&W 617. I was just practicing trying to pick up speed and improve my accuracy, testing at only 10 yards.

I started using Federal AutoMatch, Always works well in my revolver. I only had 100 rounds left in the box. Then I switched over to a box of Federal Bulk. I bought a case about 10 years ago and still have it so iit was time to finallly shoot the stuff.

Accuracy was very good even shooting at the speed I was going at. Nothing out of the black on the NRA 5 bull targets. I had two targets paisted up so I could shoot 1o shots at a time. I started slow and then picked up speed when I found I was hitting very well. I was sighted in for 20 yards so I was hitting the top of the black. Just what I wanted to do since I'll be shooting Steel Challenge stages and most targets are 20 yards or further.

Only problem, out of about 300 rounds I had 4 failure to fires. That's not a bad average and with the revolver it doesn't hold me back at all, I just pull the trigger for the next hit.

I've got 9 more boxes of this stuff so I'll be using it up in the revo and I'll test it in my Mark III 22/45. I don't think it's fast enough for my 22 conversion on the Glock but I'll give it a try.

Very nice. All I use is Federal and CCI. I do love shooting the 525 bulk packs (I repack them in 50rd boxes). Seems like I had 3 boxes of those recently and now I'm down to partial one. I dont shoot as much as most of these guys, but its one of my favorite rounds, along with Fed lightnings.
