I'll be honest with everyone.... I don't shoot bench but I do enjoy shooting 100yds at army men with my buddy. I usually shoot "Wolf Match" but my local store got this in today. 14$ a box.

Thanks guys, Slug-O

At $14.00 a box you can buy Eley Match (black box)
What you see here is Eley Club and it sells for $7 and change on Dan Killough's web site. Remington wanted their name out in the major shooting matches so they had Eley just add their name on the box. Remington is too lazy (cheep) to make their own match ammo. I would not buy that ammo just for this reason and shoot Wolf Match.

One would be hard pressed to beat the newer lots of Lapua Center-X @ the $10.00 per box area.

Purchased some 3 months ago from the local gun store for $9.00 a box.
I'm not a big time shooter, but I would not consider this good practice ammo.
As noted above for a few cents more you can purchase Eley Match.

Good Luck shooting
