I've tried it in the past, wasn't the most accurate in my gun but I don't have any complaints with it. I never found it to be the cheapest but if it's cheap and it's accurate, go for it! :)

I shot about 1000 rounds of it at ground squirrels this past season and the only thing I noticed unusual about it was the smell, which I came to enjoy after awhile. I found it very accurate in my Sako Quad. I would shoot 200-400 rounds a day without a cleaning and didn't notice any drop off in accuracy. The rifle didn't seem to be any dirtier than when shooting Hornady or CCI Ammo. I liked it so much I just bought 4000 rounds shipped to my door for $387 from SG Ammo in Oklahoma http://www.sgammo.com. Highly recommended, both the Eley and SG Ammo.Jim in Sacramento

Thanks jim. that's a good price. I'll be looking into it. I've only shot 300+ Of the Eleys. I like their accuracy. Haven't gotten used to their smell. I did a communication with Eley re corrosion. No response yet. do you have any corrosion concerns. Thanks,

Funny you mention the smell as a guy several seats down at the range caught a wiff of it and came by and chatted. He liked the smell as well, not me. I believe he said it was Vihtavuori powder that they use.

I'd be interested in hearing what Eley has to say. I personally don't have any concerns about corrosion but I clean my rifle thoroghly after each weekend shoot. I've already saved enough money to buy a repalcement barrel and still be ahead. I guess time will tell.Jim in Sacramento
