mine was from 1/15/14.

if anyone wants to try the eley ammo out for accuracy, especially at 100 yards, I'd be interested in hearing the results and how it compares to other ammo.

Default Eley 22 target ammo accuracy

I fired about fifty rounds of the CMP 22 cal. Eley with my scoped Kimber last week at 50 yards. Eight mph winds with gusts to twelve, quartering x wind. Shot the size of a penny with an occasional flier.

Not sure when it showed, but it's available on the EStore.

That is interesting; thanks for the heads-up. Depending on how this ammo tests out as, it could easily be a good deal.
But for some reason I had thought that the CMP was getting out of the .22LR business though ?

Maybe they bought a bunch to fill Aguila orders and a lot of folks bailed on their back order in favor of cheaper 22LR available?

Interesting. The email I received said they would not fill my whole backorder but I could have one case. Take it or leave it. Now I can order the equivalent of my backorder...no mention of it being a once in a forever opportunity. SMH

My first 5000rd 22lr ammo order was in 2014 for the Centurion. Then CMP changed it to Aguila shortly afterwards. Then was told I could choose the Eley which I did last month. Over a 3yr wait before my original order arrived.

Ordered another 5000rd case 10/09/2017 of the Eley 22lr, will arrive tomorrow 10/14/2017. I was expecting another long wait. So I guess they have plenty in stock, or it's not selling well and sitting on the shelf. Just a heads up.

So my question is where does this batch rank in the Eley progression?Certainly lower than 'black box'.

The only Eley with 1090FPS is their entry level target. I haven't found a better price for this anywhere. I'd found this info at Eley's web site a while back.
