Batch tested Ammunition

Batch tested Ammunition

Postby Kwaka » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:05 pm

I have for sometime been shooting bench rest with my CZ455 .22lr getting some reasonable scores considering its a sporting rifle and i'm using cheap ammo.

Not long ago I got involved in a conversation about using batch tested ammo. i.e. matched to the rifle. At nearly three times the cost of the stuff that I use I naively asked if it really was worth it!

Well the other week I found out. I borrowed a friends target rifle and used my ammunition, a nice group for five shots well under a five pence piece at 25 metres. I then switched to the batch tested ammunition and instantly put two rounds down virtually on top of each other! It also eliminated that once in a while flier that you could not reasonably explain. I shot a couple of cards and my scores went up by three points!!!!

So I guess it does make a difference, just not sure I can justify the extra cost tho'. Maybe just search for a more suitable non-prohibitively expensive round.

I see some ammo testing in my future.

I think you'll find they want you to buy at least 5000 rounds when you batch test.

I use CenterX in my CZ452, and at 50yds it's as accurate as my Anschutz Supermatch 1913.

My Brno mod 2e used to one hole with the old Winchester subs at 40grain. When they changed the weight it wasn't as accurate :(

The newer Winchester are 42grain in a blackish box.
Not heard of a 38grain in this neck of the woods
