Im useing the .223 Rem Express, and they shoot very tight groups out of my short action Howa. It loves them.

Its quality ammo, but when sold out I dont think there will be any more.

We have been shooting walabies with them and its been doing a great job.

Just tried HC's ammo in my .223.
Best of 8 groups, after sighting in, was a clover leaf 11mm measured outer to outer.
Fair buck that was the best of them by a wee margin.
Gonna buy a few boxes of that.
Hornady training steel case came second with a best group of 15mm.

Paul at Aoraki Ammunition.  Theres virtually no more of the .223 left excepting the fmj .

They are the people that brought in a container of PMJ last year and sold it dirt cheap until the local shops kicked up a stink.

Very helpfull bloke.


The wallaby shooting vid that StrikerNZ put up in the small game hunting section was all Geko.
