Benchrest shooters, to be the best you need to test
Calling all .22lr benchrest shooters! To be the best, you have to batch test. Ammunition testing is available at the ELEY test range in Texas and here’s four reasons why you should give it a try.
1. A higher number of lots available to test
At the ELEY customer range in Texas, the team can test 15-25 different lots of ELEY tenex in your rifle. The vast majority of the time it will be 20+ lots tested but ELEY guarantee at least 15 different lots. To find the absolute best lot in your rifle, you would need to increase the number of lots tested. The majority of people that batch test at home will not purchase anywhere near that amount of lots and so will decrease the chance of finding the best one for your barrel.
2. Ability to test velocities and machines you would not normally test
Most customers will start off testing their favourite machine or velocity based on what shot well in their barrel previously. However, your barrel is not the same today as it was when you first purchased that previous lot of ammunition. You have shot 5,000-10,000 rounds through the barrel, and now the barrel is physically different and it is impossible to predict which machine would produce the best lot for that rifle. Or which velocity would perform the best. The customer range will have lots from every machine and with a wide range of velocities.
To recreate the ELEY customer test range at home, you will need to purchase at least 1,000 round of ELEY tenex that will be used in the test process.
4. Ammunition will be available at the ELEY customer test range
At the ELEY range, we guarantee to have 5,000 rounds of each lot tested on the day you test. No more testing at home only to call and order that great lot of ammunition to find out that it is SOLD OUT. Nothing is more aggravating than going through all the trouble and expense of testing only to have the lot you want not available.
The test fee is $45/barrel and that fee is waived if you purchase 100 boxes. The cost of ELEY tenex through the test range is $20.50/box and has no shipping charges on the ammunition
