Thread: Geco Ammo

  1. #1

    Geco Ammo

    I've read a few threads where people refer to Geco ammo as cheap and cheerful, yet I often see it used in many of the shooting videos (the shooting show, field sport tv etc...).
    How does it compare to other factory ammo?

    Good ammo, just happens to be the cheaper RWS line.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    +1 good ammo and a cheap as a back up if powder and bullets are scarce

    I use the 165gr T-Mantel in my 7x64. Shoots it very nice and consistently.

    And I use the .22lr pistol with great effect.

    ATB,

    The 105 grain soft point (Teilmantel) performs OK (1" groups") in my .243
    and purports 2955ft/sec 2036ft lbs in a 23.6inch barrel which is good,
    ​but my box was not cheap( 25)

    but factory wise the ppu ammo is much cheaper and even more accurate
    and worth trying.

    It is of good quality - if a somewhat goofy selection of weights!

    It appears ad nauseum on the Shooting Show because RUAG are a paying sponsor. I practiced for days to open the box and load the mag - all the while showing the manufacturers logo . Though in our case I have to say we were already using Geco ammo in any event.

    HOWEVER - all ammo should be judged on quality and consistency as opposed to how it actually groups from one rifle. The Geco 243 105 grain being a good example - Howas love it, Sako's hate it - for the most part. Obviously performance in your particular shooting iron is what matters most.

    Ive ppu 100g through my cz .243 and had no probs
    but I now have a sako so will be interesting to see how they go

    Thanks
    the sponsorship thing makes sense now. I have a Remi semi custom but will give these a try. 105g maybe a tad on the heavier side, mine more suited to the 80-90g
