ELEY Makes Significant Investment in Competition Segment Within the USA

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- ELEY Ltd, Inc., the leader in premium rimfire .22LR manufacturing has made significant investments in .22LR rimfire benchrest and competition segments within the USA. ELEY has partnered with American Rimfire Association (ARA) and Professional Shooting League (PSL) to help promote, develop and manage one of the fastest growing rimfire competition segments worldwide.

The ARA and PSL competitions are the foremost authority of rimfire benchrest organizations within the United States, and with the investment from ELEY will develop and produce a highly-desired competition for the demanding shooters.

Benchrest is the pinnacle of precision for .22LR rimfire competition, as such ELEY has identified the need to help expand this ever growing, exciting and demanding sport.

“This support by ELEY, will help us bring .22LR benchrest to the forefront of shooting competitions,” says Dan Killough, Director of ARA & PSL. “With the expansion of benchrest, it gives shooters a platform to enjoy and participate in rimfire competition that previously may not have been available to them,” stated Mike Corkish, Director of Sales for North America.

ARA was started in April 1998 by a group of .22LR shooters who wanted an organization for competitive .22LR benchrest competition. In 2010, ARA started to transition to what it has become today, with the unique goal of continuing the vision of the ARA founders by providing an honest competitive organization that is true to .22LR shooting.

PSL was founded as a benchrest organization for the true precision shooting professional. With the growth of rimfire benchrest, there was a need to have a professional organization to which shooters would be compensated for their hard work, training and competition success.

ELEY Ltd., Inc. based in Birmingham, England is the foremost global leader in .22LR ammunition. ELEY provides the most innovative products and services through knowledge and technology to improve performance and enhance the enjoyment of target shooting, thereby ensuring our customers fulfill their competitive sporting ambitions and win at every level of the sport.

Eley, has made their 22LR ammo more affordable for the every day Shooter // check out Cabela’s// I have seen price’s as low as $5.00 a box + their competition ammo is under $10.00 a box vs some of the poor 22LR that is passed on as
good , accurate rimfire ammo. Remember you get what you pay for !! Every shooter knows that you must try different
ammo because all Rifles do Not shoot the same !! Remember Eley has been around for a long time // they have their act together and getting better all the time //

If they can lower the high cost of their rimfire ammo and improve it’s accuracy I’m all for it .Otherwise they can only rely on the elite ,well financed shooters to continue in a sport that should be readily affordable and available to all shooters of any age or financial status


I doubt the price going down and right now Lapua has the best ammo just not enough of it. Rimfire benchrest will stay very expensive and remain the domain of elite well funded shooters.
