Thread: Privvi ammo

    Privvi ammo

    Again great reasults.
    Out the other day with steyr as a client and he wanted to test fire his rifle so i had cleaned my sako 22250 and was wanting to try some 50gr sp privvis.
    So we set up a target and I went off a rolled up gun slip over the bonnet at 200m's
    I had x2 groups under an inch at 200m's
    What else is there to say 11 a box.
    Got to be worth a try, I had some 55gr and they were as good.

    Yes I've found it good in the 243 and just as accurate as anything else I've put in there. My local rfd reckons they don't expand as much as others but I'm still waiting to get hold of some for the 7mm. Any thoughts on that? (expansion - not me waiting for ammo)

    Now I'm in North Yorkshire, I might take a drive down to Henry Crank and pick up a few boxes for the 22-250 and the .270, just to try them, my .308 liked them.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I use it all the time in my 6.5 and its great taken over 100 roe with no problems.
    wouldn't use ANY standard soft point in my rem mag -- partions or bonded bullets only though RWS conepoints are good but 53 a box.
    The 55gr privvi was slow on expansion but the 50's go well shot a fox in the head last week and had NO exit.

    Pickering guns stock the stuff in most calibres / mention me to them and you might even get discount.

    Local dealer here quoted 12 a box for 6.5 x 55, think he said 139g, does that sound right? Have you tried them in your 6.5 x 55?
