- Great ammo!! Review by Willie
We have shot over 5.000 rounds on many a three day trip and as we are all pretty competitive, we went looking for the right ammo with intense dedication to the task. We tried various Winchester and Remington ammo and pretty mush any brand we could buy in a specialty Sporting Goods store.
We found that all the #52 with the same ammo shot the same, regardless of the barrel size but when the barrels were hot, the reason for the bull barrels were pretty obvious and while we all had 20 power or larger Lyman or Unerty scopes we did enjoy two sessions at a friend’s 100 yard range trying out all the ammo.
Remember our criteria was both accuracy and hitting power, and while the Fiocchi ammo was by far the most accurate, it had no velocity at 100 yards, it was not what we wanted. Out of all the others the one we all decided on was the Winchester Wildcat as it was the most accurate with the required velocity at 100 yards.
Before I moved to Samoa, we used three Model #52 Winchesters to shoot over 5,200 rounds in one day, and killed over 4,000 sage rats on one ranch, and it was with this ammo that I shot a fly that happened to land on one of our targets at 100 yards! Without a witness I would have never have been able to say that.
Remember we are all shooting this ammo through bolt actions and very rarely do we have a feeding problem, I have never had a misfire! (Posted on 1/22/13)

- Good Value Review by booker
I've only shot a few dozen rounds, but the ammunition performed well in a Ruger Mark III Target. Reliable feeding/ejecting and sufficiently accurate for plinking and practice. One bullet was deformed (missing nearly half of its material) and had to be discarded. I haven't inspected the case but so far it is the only defect. (Posted on 8/23/12)
