Thread: Bloody PRVI ammo

  1. #1

    Bloody PRVI ammo

    Could I get it to group anywhere near decently...Could I hell!
    I know some on here find it ok and some don't, so I thought I'd give it a go and find out for myself, well I know the answer now...60 rounds down range and ******** grouping.
    Wasn't the best day for it with a great heat haze out there and the hot barrel wasn't helping but to be honest I did expect better results..Oh well live an learn. Can't be doing with the ridiculous price for decent factory ammo so it looks like reloading or at the least get someone to load some for me.

    Nw,

    have you always used the same ammo or is this a new round for your gun.
    from previous threads and first hand experience the rifle will always choose its round.
    you will not force the rifle to shoot a round it does not want to.

    Hi Frank
    new gun so was taking it to zero and have have fun with some rounds. Only tried the prvi as its like 11 quid a box against various makes, but decent stuff up to what 40 quid which I kinda resent paying knowing that the ammo in the UK is sorely overpriced. But looks like I'll have to bite the bullet so to speak.

    Get into reloading mate, to be fair ive heard the stories about the Pervi ammo, heard a couple of people saying its ok, but I agree, the ammo here is just a too expensive.

    hi,

    cost is not always why the round sucks, some of the cheap rounds do well. your rifle just has expensive taste. you should have gave it a guys name ha ha
    try bushwear for ammo cost as they sell me my federals 30% cheaper than anyone else
    i would buy one box of the three brands and try them. if its not on in five rounds from the rifle it will probably will never be on.
    you will find it eventually.

    good luck mate, let us know how you do

    I could not get the stuff to group either in my PH .270 so I dismantled them used H4895 and some Siera Gameking bullets and they shoot perfect. Some rifles seem to love them but it appears if your rifle does not fall into this catagory forget them. Shame though at those prices who would want to buy anything else.

    Thanks guys agree with you all, I'll post up as and when I get a factory round to go where its meant to and let you know what I went for . Meanwhile has anyone experience with factory ammo in Sako 75 finnlight 30-06 thats works really well?

    I shoot sako's
    They love privvis and everything else, the 270 and 6.5 work very well on roe and munties.
    Did you "run" in your new rifle, allowing the barrel to heat up was not good on any rifle never mind a new one.
    You will find on the finnlite 2 shots and then 3 minutes to fire number 3 or any round will produce flyers... You MUST keep that barrel cool.

    Got to be honest I didn't "run" the barrel in really. All I did was obvioulsy a good clean prior to shooting, put 10 rounds through it and then cleaned again, then another 20 rounds. I then let it cool down and switched to another rifle for a 30 mins and then went back to the sako and knocked another 30 out but not with any huge speed.
    Wasn't the best day for cooling the barrel tho ,was prob the hottest day lately so ambient air def didn't help much.
