I've tried some Eley High Velocity Hollow Points and they are quite accurate in my CZ 452. More accurate than the Winchesters.

Ironically, I had a good opportunity at a fox with my first box and managed to pick the only bad round I've come across to date. It didn't go bang like all the others and the fox got away. This hasn't happened again and I dropped my first roo with it this week.

I understand your point. The animal was injured and had to be put down at close range. Poor wording on my part.

RWS HP (high penetration).
My 452 cloves them and they do a lot of damage.

Federal Champion high velocity hollow points. Accurate and cheap.
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but personally I prefer the .30/30 Winchester.

Ive tried 2 different batches of that ammo in 2 rifles...
The targets appeared as if damaged by shrapnel from a nearby explosion.
I know of 3 others with the same or similar results...

thanks JT. that's off a fold out tripod rest and a bag under the bottom of the butt . i don't take bench shootin' too seriously, it's more about challenging myself and improving my ability for out in the feild . besides that it's bloody fun !

I was using these for a while as they where very accurate but found they didnt hit with as much authority when shooting at 50m or further as the Winchester 42gn subs and I was getting alot of kickers when shooting rabbits and lossing them down there warren.

Federal bulk 525 pack. 1300fps, work well in every 22 I tried. Makes a definitive thud when hitting your mark. 36 bucks for 525 can’t go wrong. Winchester are terrible surviving on their name only. (IMO of course)
