Has anyone tested this ammo before? If so what do you think? What would you compare it to? Thanks.

It's RWS ammo, most likely their lowest-grade. I've tried some in my CZ 452 and it wasn't a good match for that particular rifle.

Get a box or two and see how your rifle likes it, just don't be too disappointed if it doesn't perform real well.

In my CZ 452 it's ok at chickens and after that it opens up. It's a Lil slow out of the gun too. At 100 meters it was a 4" pattern.

One of the worst I ever shot.

It shoots at least as well as anything else for the price out of my 1712 with Lilja 4-groove tightbore barrel and out of my 2007/2013 position with factory stainless barrel. It's also good out of my 1807 repeater, but I haven't tested that rifle with lots of different ammo types. I've won several smallbore silhouette matches with it, but I wouldn't shoot a national championship with it.
