Federal is in the same family as CCI, and Hornady stuff coming out soon? Now I'm getting interested, just need somebody to make a nicer rifle and I might get in on one.

Lots of F AE 17 WSM at the local show today. $15.00 box. I picked up one box for my collection of .17 caliber stuff. It had been way too costly to buy until the last few weeks when a new supply hit the market.

I'd be interested for someone to run this through a chrony and compare it to the Winchester stuff to see if it's an better consistency.

Finally got my hands on some Federal ammo. Every shot was a flyer with no rhyme or reason to direction. Dirt flying up in every direction.

Went back out today. I put 10 Federal's downrange after running 50 Winchester 20gr's through it.
I had no problem hitting a 4"x14" popper in its' 1"x2" "head" at 220yds with Federals.
I guess they like a fouled bore?

I saw today that the local Walmart had a case of the American Eagle ammo. What a surprise. Will have to get a couple of boxes. I hope it doesn't have the WW issue with split necks. Most of our fliers/group busters came from split necks. The rifle wants to shoot. I have been blaming the ammo for the inconsistent groups.
