Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Have not seen these before.

The long driving band on these is similar to the old CCI Subsonic, which lacks the copper plating. I thought I seen an Omark marking on the end label, so anything is possible.
They are of course, a good deal faster than the Subsonic, and may be the CCI SGB (which I've never tried) re-badged to "Winchester".

Will have a shooting report when I can get the 52 down to the gravel pit for a sight-in.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

I still haven't had a chance to try out the Ely Club 22 ammo I bought a while back. I also need to get out and do some shooting when it finally warms up. SW

They had me at 40 Gr. Hollow-point :bigrin:
Most are 36 Gr. soaking wet.
We shall see!
