    ELEY HOLLOW AMMO RESULTS

    Has anyone tried eley hollow for accuracy and consistency ? I am thinking about going to this ammo for everything,why practice with another ammo when you hunt with this,results will be different.

    Eley subsonic HPs work well for me. For HVHP though, I prefer the RWS.

    I shoot most everything with some combination of CCI SV, Gemtech, or Eley Target/Club. Mini-mags are handy in only one rifle, because the chamber runs better with them.

    No matter, really.

    If you've already bought some, I'd run some and put it on paper and see what you think.
    If you're satisfied with the results on paper, should make a great hunting round. Eley's always had good QC.
    I'm half laughing at myself; got several thou rounds of HV and my game has changed from plinking to seeking more precision and distance, and I'm going through the SV while the HV stuff sits.
    Both my semi-auto .22s are digging the CCI Standard really well.

    I personally have had better luck with lrn instead of hp. If im shooting subs I use Eley Contact and use the Eley Force on everthing else. For some reason I get better consistency with heavier rounds. Im not saying the Tenex or Biathlon arent good by any means but the Contact and Force are just more economical imho. I do have some CCI lrn for plinking and for the gkids to shoot. They have had good enough success with them to keep'm happy.

    I haven't been scientific with my documentation, but generally I've found the rounds to be as accurate as CCI rounds. I used a tacsol 10/22 threaded bull barrel and a Gemtech GM22. I use sub sonic HP Eley rounds.

    The Eley Subsonic HPs are pretty decent ammo. I’ve found that I like CCI Segmented Subsonics even better for small critter shooting if we are talking hunting ammo.

    For precision ammo, Lapua Center X performs the best for me.

    I wasn't too impressed by the HP, especially for the price. Not saying it won't shoot good for you in your rifle, but in the 2 rifles I tried it in I am getting better accuracy with other ammo for the same or even less $.

    Used CCI shorts with a phillips point pressed into the cavities for a nice wet "whop". But that was 45 years ago and I have no idea now about the consistency of their ammo.

    I think the Eley are accurate. My sons used them for some 4H competitions and worked well. The one that seemed to be the most accurate were some Remington HP Yellow Jackets - at least for their competitions. But I haven't seen them for sale in a few years. Remington might not make them anymore?
