Anyone use? Looks to be RWS made and my rifle likes RWS well enough.....

I used 4 or 5 bricks a couple of years ago and it shot well - no problems holding AAA scores. At that stage the Australian importer was changing and so was being sold off cheaply. It is available again, but I haven't used the newer stuff, so don't know if it has changed. However if it is as good as the older product it should be good - although only testing in your own rifle will say for sure.

Just bought a case for $550 to my door. It's made by RWS and looks just like RWS Rifle. My gun likes RWS and ELEY so if it shoots as well as eley Target or better I'll be tickled. :)

Yes and no... so far the times I have to shoot haven't matched up with favorable conditions to actually test... in unfavorable conditons it looks to be about the same as
Eley target in my gun. I normally shoot Club which is MOA, the Target is the same but with random fliers (not bad but definantly outside of the "group" you are shooting).
Looks to be good practice ammo.

Worst ammo I ever shot.
On a par with 'thunderbolts'!
