Good shooting FC. I assume you are shooting at 100 yards or meters?

Where in Germany is Ravensburg?

Cheers,

Hi Creeper!

The shooting distance in germany is always 100 m.
Ravensburg is a city about 200 km north from munich. In the south of germany.

Excellent. I may be in Germany next summer... maybe I'll drive into Ravensburg and check out your range.

May all your bullets go through the same hole. ;)

Thats a good idea. Please notice: the shooting range is only open for rifles at thursday evening and saturday afternoon. Poor germany! :mad:
Maybe i will visit next year together with a friend which as i´ve heard the biggest rodeo in cheyenne.

Have a nice day!

Best regards

We need more RWS here in the US! I do have some in .22 LR, though. Good Shooting!

What about the remington Premier Match ammo? The price for one round is significantly cheaper. 1 €! And they are loaded with sierra-matchking!:)
The Norma ammo is the most expensive target ammo here in germany.

In .22 lr i always use CCI Standard!

I don't know. I prefer Hornady or the older line of Federal Premium, which also loaded the Sierra bullets. Both shoot very well. I shoot the Norma in my Euro rifles, but may switch soon to all PPU and Hornady if I can get it.

Gotta love the Finns shot my tikka t3 this morning, about 1.25" at 200 yards with 3 shots, I used my range bag to rest the rifle on. Used lake city xm80.

The best factory ammo I have found for my 308 is Hornady 168gr AMAX it will put 5 shots touching if I do my part.

Hornady ammo is a fairly expensive in Germany and the A-Max is hard to get to. Only the Norma ammo is more expensive.
I will try the remington match. Lets see how it works.


PS: You did a good job, Palmetto-Pride :)
