    "Eley standard will be available in a 500 round bulk pack with a MSRP of $49.99."
    That's almost $5 / 50.
    WOW.

    No clue what the street price will be when it comes out. Price wise it not much higher than CCI SV @ $43.99 per 500. SK Standard Plus runs in the $50's for it's bulk pack. Eley's quality is usually good if your rifle likes it.

    Here is something else Eley has done for those of us that want the "Best" 22 ammo we can get. I copied this from another forum and it was sent by Dan Killough.

    Have you ever wondered how your ammunition performed prior to purchasing? ELEY has made it possible for the .22LR shooter to see the performance before they buy. With the ELEY lot analyzer you will now be able to enter an ELEY lot number into the website and see many different statistics about the particular lot of ammunition entered. Visit www.eleyammunition.com, scroll to the ELEY lot analyzer and click to enter your lot number.

    ELEY is dedicated to producing the most accurate and consistent .22LR at all price levels and by introducing the ELEY lot analyzer a consumer can see how accurate and consistent each lot performs. The ELEY lot analyzer will give information such as quantity loaded, group size, percentage of shots within tenths of inches from center, velocity and much more.


    It is now possible to be standing in your local sporting goods store, enter an ELEY lot number that is on the shelf and instantly see the performance of the ammunition. This service will be available for all ELEY lot numbers in the United States from 2015 forward. You can find the year of your ammunition by the third and fourth numbers in the lot. For example, if your lot number is 3016-30xxx, it is from the year 2016.

    It is exciting to be able to offer this service to consumers to gain their trust in ELEY ammunition across every product and pricing level. To analyze your lot of ammunition please visit www.eleyammunition.com and click the lot analyzer button to discover your possibilities. ELEY .22LR ammunition is accuracy defined.

    I thought I had read/heard that the commodity Eley was/is made in Remington owned plants in Mexico (aka Aguila?)?

    The Eley ammo that we shoot in competition comes from the UK. Not sure about any other.

    It looks like the "Eley Sport", in the purple box, was made in Mexico (by Aguila from the references I found to it) and was discontinued a few years ago (I still have a brick of it I got from http://militaryshooters.com several years ago somewhere around the house I think):

    To confuse things further, green box "Eley Sport" was made in the UK and sold in Europe.

    Given their history of creating "Eley Sport" .22, I'd want to see where their new "affordable" "Eley Standard" ammo was manufactured before I'd order any large quantity of it. (Purple box Eley Sport was known for lower QC in manufacturing and having some flyers).

    I had forgotten all about Eley sport. It was made in Mexico. Like I said earlier, I only shoot match grade black box or Tennex in competition. That will cost ya $15/20 for a box of 50! But if your gonna run with the big dogs, ya gotta pay the price!
