I can only dream of having two cases of the best Lapua cartridges. I'm happy for you and hope every shot is an "X".
Roughly 10 years ago - give or take - I ordered a case of Russian "Sniper" cartridges and a case of the brass-cased "Junior" Russian cartridges. Both cases arrived in flat wood crates. The 50 round boxes were in sealed, waterproof bricks of 500 rounds.
I wish I still had a few boxes of the "Sniper" as I recently saw a single full box on one of the auction sites with a bid of more than $34.
The Kitty might like the wooden crates turned into bird houses.The shipping on mine was less than 25 per case.I thought that was quite reasonable given the extra weight of the wood.I'm planning to try some in a week or so. We can compare notes.
Ok. I admit it. I'm tossing the lower right bull from the average to give me a-not-so-disrepectful .167 average. light variable rear wind. Some minor side-to-side target movement occasionally. 25 yards
This series is a bit better than the usual Midas M performance. Given that it is Master M, I am a very happy camper.
No, I have no idea where the loan flyer came from.
