Good info 1919. I figured it was older stuff. This shop has people bringing ammo in to them all the time and then they re-sell it. That's why they had the Federal gold medal match made in 1992 there. I wish I could have bought both bricks they had, but they limited me to just 1 brick. Or 100 rounds. A nice old guy let me buy the wolf match with the 100 rounds of this SK ammo. Kind of a pisser, I would have bought at least 500 rounds of the SK. I've always had good luck with just the standard plus SK. At $11.95/100 rounds, I didn't think I was going to get hurt. It will probably shoot well in one of my rifles. Thanks to everyone that could share some tidbits. I'll let you know how it shoots one of these days. I have not shot a rimfire rifle in probably 7 months. I'm spending a lot of time with some new centerfire rifles and some competitive matches: Long range varmint silhouette matches here. Its been fun and I've been giving it to them. Good group of guys and great shooters at this club. Generally about 22 shooters show up, so it's been fun..

IIRC, that Federal Gold Match ammo was actually loaded by RWS in Germany (owned by RUAG, who also makes the Norma TAC-22, Geco, and probably some other stuff). RUAG was recently bought up by Beretta, who also own Sako, Tikka, Burris Optics, Uberti, Franchi, and all kinds of other stuff (they are the European version of Vista Outdoors, apparently).

I am on the fence about single huge entities buying up all their competitors, like Vista buying Remington, CCI, Federal, etc. I really do not like having all that supply line in so few hands. I guess that's capitalism, though.

I agree. Kind of like what Hodgdon has done..

Good stuff guys. I appreciate the help. The main reason I went to this shop was to buy some Lapua brass for my new rifle. I knew they had it and it is hard to find stuff. 22-250 and it was $91/100. I bought the 2 boxes they had and am glad they still had it. I saw it there 3 weeks ago and had a feeling it was still there. It sucks my new Tikka has a tighter chamber than the other 22-250's I have and I found myself needing new brass. All my other brass was loaded up/spoken for (about 300 rounds worth for my Steven's 200, XTR featherweight and Tikka varmint model). Too bad the new rifle has a slightly tighter chamber, but damn it shoots great with 77's, so that is good news..

Your ammo may be an older product, or a Chinese knock-off? sick

That's a bold assertion. Point out where you think I lied.

Its older and says made in Germany right on it. I've said a few times on this thread that this particular store re sells ammo people bring in to them because of these times of ammo and component shortages.
