I believe both Wolf and SK rimfire ammo are actually made by Lapua.

Five shots at 50 yards in wind free conditions with a 1885 (low wall) Winchester single shot and a Leupold 2-7X rimfire scope.

I have gotten very good accuracy, .25" at 25 yards, out of a few bricks of Rem Sub Sonic I bought years ago in multiple different rifles. It was only 2.50 per 50 around 2007 and the hollow point performs nicely on small game.

Every lot # and every rifle, is "onto it self." Do some testing with your ammo and rifle. What works with my rifle may not work so well with yours.

In another test that I did......I found that my Ruger 10/22 was unreliable when using Fed Auto Match.

BTW.....GECO Bolt is available for $205 a case w/ free shipping at Target Sports USA. While a case of CCI std velocity was running $260 a case at Brownells.

Aloha, Mark

These were the results of some ammo testing I did the other day. I was shooting at 50 yards with a Marlin 981t and a $20 scope. Blazer gave me the best group with Remington thunderbolt in 2nd. CCI standard and CCI mini-mag hp tied for 3rd.
