SOMEBODY didn't like or rate TENEX much then eh?In my smallbore days I was told Tenex was simply basic Eley club ammo that had passed quality control as being much more accurate and was boxed differently.
I think that MAY have come from what I believe I heard in my early days of team indoor .22 competitive shooting that was that the brand new swaging dies making the lead projectiles were first used to make the TENEX bullets for tens of thousands of them. Then, when same dies eventually wore down and the tight measurements needed to give the highly accurate bullets became 'sloppy' then the dies were allowed a new lease of life and given over to producing tens of thousands more projectiles, but this time they got used in the production of 'Club' rounds, that were/are very slightly less accurately produced and where the measurements are less tightly held due to wear on the bullet swaging dies!?.
That may or may not be true of course, but is a little more believable than the passed closer inspections or not I feel??
What you have as an explanation is one I have heard that supposedly separates the Federal Gold Medal (GM) Primers as compared to the more every day, regular Federal Primers, where the more highly checked over ones become the GM versions...?? Again, could just be one of those shooting community 'Myths' but I have no feel for the correctness of that one way or the other,...
ATB ....... and shoot safely
