Don't give up yet!
I think they are a myth anyway. Sort of the Bigfoot of .22 ammo - elusive and strange.

Sk flatnose match due on retailer's shelves 5/31/18.
Sk flatnose basic due on retailer's shelves 6/1/18.

Interesting that Eley puts the flatnose on the highest priced two ammo types in their product line but Sk-jagd puts their flatnose on the two cheapest ammo types in their product line. Does anybody in the silhouette world know why?

I do not know, but am willing to speculate. By offering the new bullet profile at a low price, more shooters are apt to try it. And if the new bullet proves itself as highly accurate, then demand increases and the company can raise the price and make a good profit on the back end.

It's sort of like a crack dealer offering cheap samples. Gets 'em addicted and then the customer can't stop!

That's priced better than I would have expected. I put in an order for a brick. We'll see how it does.

I got a UPS tracking number in a matter of minutes after my order was placed. I'm guessing I got one of the last bricks.

I'm curious to see how it performs compared to the Eley EPS bullet. My Stiller shoots the variants of Eley fine (better than MOA), but nothing like it does the round nosed Lapua/Sk options. I halfway expect that Std + will yield better results for me, but we'll see.

Got the brick last night and took some quick cell phone shots. I don't know why I was surprised by how flat the bullet was considering that's what they named it. =))

I shot most of a box of Flat Nose at the range today. The only surprise was the minor elevation adjustment needed at 75 yards and again at 100 yards.
Lever action Henry rifle with Williams receiver sight. 1/2 turn up from "zero" @ 75 yards and 1 revolution more @ 100 yards. I'm used to more elevation.

The SK web site says it is 50 meter ammo - but it will go further. Accuracy was equal to Wolf Match Extra - perhaps better with a scope.

I was curious about the needed elevation changes at longer distances based on their "improved ballistic properties" statement. Interesting.
