My case arrived today, ordered it on Thursday and received it today, fast delivery.

I ran my lot number on the lot analyzer and mine was listed. It showed a picture of "Eley Club"

Just need the time and a day when it's not raining to test it out.

""Somebody that bought it needs to test at 100 meters just for the heck of it.
Silhouette is sorely lacking in inexpensive subsonic ammo that will hold a decent group at 100 meters for matches.""

My testing was at 100 meters, I should have mentioned that.

I have stated countless times that testing at 40, 60, & 77 meters is a waste of time and ammo. If it groups well at 100 it will group well at closer ranges. Do ALL your testing at 100 m.

I ran 2 different lot numbers through the Eley lot number finder and both come up as lot number not found. I must not be smiling right win I enter the data or I have the wrong site.

Absolutely, the furthest distance shot in match conditions is where the ammo testing need be done.
In 22bpcr silhouette, most do the testing on the rams or paper at 200 meters. Most ammunition shoots well enough to take the pigs down at 100 meters, but the turkeys and the rams is where the rifle's favorites are determined.

Jerry G,
Here a link to the site I used. I'm sure you are doing it, but be sure and use the dash between the numbers and the numbers are correct.
I think it only works for the year 2015 and later.

Thanks for the link. I just got a case of the Eley ammo from the dcm and they could not find the lot. I wouldn't think the ammo is that old but you never know. I tried 5 different lot numbers that I had and they all failed. Oh well.

I finally made it to the range and shot 4 groups at 100m. Best 2 - 5 shot groups were;

#! - 1.022 MOA
#2 - 0.628 MOA

I am happy. Plenty good for club matches.

I was at a public range and the benches are at an odd height so I had to put my bags on top of my shooting box whish was not too stable. The largest group was just l little over 1 1/2 MOA

The analyzer is only supposed to be for Match and Tenex from all I've seen published. Could be wrong. :-?
