As logical as that sounds, the PPU rounds seem to want to jam after firing, so I wouldn't take them after live quarry at all. Would hate to need a second shot and have to fight a jam.
I'll pass them on to someone at the DSC1. My misfortune can be someone elses good fortune
If you were a bit closer!
Honestly, I can't even use them for practice, as once fired they make the bolt an absolute nightmare to cycle in my Steyr. I'm scared I'll be dealing with a jam. But a yankee relative loves them through his ruger. Think my rifle is just a bit of a tart when it comes...
I've recently found a few boxes of PPU .270 ammunition and thought I had hit the jackpot, at £16 a box compared to my usual federal at £32 a box.
Turns out they are completely unreliable through my rifle. I'm left with a full box that I wont be using. How can I get rid of these?
That's a very disappointing outcome. Like Kes rightly said, the fact that the JR was brought at all shows this technicality could not have been common knowledge.
3 organisations working together and none of them were aware of the time limit? Seems strange
Granted I haven’t yet had the pleasure of taking a Red Stag, the 130g .270 is my round of choice for everything from bushbuck to kudu bulls out in South Africa. I can’t imagine it’ll struggle.
Just go with Scottish deer legal ammunition you are confident in, that shoots well in your rifle.
