lash, this is some good info here. I went and shot a new .22 last weekend with SV ammo in the 1050 to 1080 range, and this data was extremely close. Very appreciated!

Anyone ever use the Norma Tac Match ammo? Is the PRIME Bolt Action ammo made by Norma for them? It is priced the same but I haven't had good luck with the Prime so don't want to spend $90 for a brick as I already have 1,000 rounds of PRIME

I was ready to order a brick but then I noticed that the price was identical to the PRIME bolt and recalled that PRIME uses some Norma components in the centerfire line.

I then compared photos and they look identical as well. The PRIME works OK in my Annie at 50 yards but at 100 yards, it is not so good. Compared to the WOLF MT Extra, it is very inconsistent.

I will skip it

We almost need a 22 ammo rating system, 1-10 or or something like that.
Words like "match" and "target" can be assigned to anything without regard for quality or standards.
This shit, for example, should be against the law.

I have to agree. It does tend to be a crap shoot when it comes to what does and does not work, at least in my limited experience. I actually have a few boxes of that at home, but have not tried it. The CCI SV works a well as I need in my Savage MKII right now, so I am not messing with a good thing.

So what is actually wrong with it? I haven't used it. I've used the federal auto match and it works. Didn't do accuracy tests or anything.
The crap that I say to not use is the browning performance rimfire. It scared me shooting it out of my neos. Felt like squib loads. Wouldn't shoot it out of my savage mark 2. BPR.png

I just came across this thread and found the info pretty interesting. I'm using CCI MiniMags in my 10-22 with Green Mountain barrel and Lash's spreadsheet fits in pretty well with what I have found. I've only gone to 200yards and my come ups are less than the SV loads which is logical to me.

Anyway - good work Lash, thanks for posting your sheet.

That’s funny... my CZ455 with a 20.5” barrel shoots that stuff great. The 922A, specifically.

There is an ammo rating system already in place.
It's the price per round.
6 cents a round or less is bulk.
7 to 10 cents a round is for 25 yard pistol targets.
11 to 15 cents per round is practice ammo for 50 yards.
16 to 20 cents per round is practice ammo for 100 yards.
21 cents to 29 cents per round
is for competition if you don't care if you win.
30 cents per round up is for local benchrest matches.
Lot tested ammunition bought in case lots of 1250 bucks plus per case is true match ammo.

It's true. You don't have to like it, but it's true.

It's true. You don't have to like it, but it's true.
$1250/ case of 5,000 rounds puts you at $0.25/round, so your math is off somewhere...

I was waiting for someone to do the math.
Lot tested is the important phrase in the price per case.
Often, CenterX at the Lapua test center
produces better results than Midas+ and XAct.
As I said, lot tested, 1250 per case, and you buy all of it.
That can be 60,000 rounds.
But that's what you do when you find "magic" ammunition. :)

Side note, retail CenterX is 22 cents per round.
But that is not lot tested, so there's no telling how it will do.
Use it when it doesn't matter if you win.

Thanks for the great info. I am new to the Rimfire Precision Rifle game and had some 50, 75 & 100 yd. data for the Wolf Match Target. The chart was dead on with my numbers testing at the range, so it just filled in the blanks for me!

JA:

Could you supply a reference on the details of lot testing.

Thanx, Rick

My club is doing an NRL22 match this weekend with some targets out to 300 yards (this is in addition to NRLs published course of fire). Someone suggested using a BC of .105. I got an average velocity across 10 shots and plugged in the data. I was hitting steel consistently at 200 and the app got me within a mil at 300. Reset the app for my true scope height and the app was on. Just used the free strelok app. If you haven't tried shooting a 22lr 200-300 yards yet I highly recommend it. It was very challenging and a tremendous amount of fun!!! Can't wait to shoot the match this weekend.

We just ran a small LR .22 match on 11/25, with shots from 32-322 yards. This included my signature stage of shaving cream cans hanging on string at 200 meters. 3 shots. If you hit on 1st shot it’s 12 points, 2nd shot is 6 points and 3rd shot impact is 3 points. You only get to shoot at one can, so max points are 12 on that stage.

I’m glad that this has been worthwhile. As I may have mentioned, I could find nothing else readily available out there and figured if I was going to take the time to do it for myself, I might as well share with the community.
