If a company can obtain the resources to manufacturer ammo at a reasonable price it’s guaranteed to fly of the shelf now days.


This is some of the crappiest ammo on the market. I always buy Norma.

Congratulations on always finding Norma ammo available for sale. Must be an experience choice as Norma is typically of the more expensive brands. Oh by the way I find that CCI Green Label 22LR is better than Norma’s match 22LR so you may want to give it a try.
