Ron, I bought some Eley ammo from gunbroker and it shoots extremely well out of my Anschutz. I think I paid 145 dollars for 2000 rounds. I see the price has went up to 170 dollars. That still makes it less than 5 dollars a box. I think thats pretty good

Remington for $3.79 a box at CDNN Investments. Flat $9.99 shipping for as many cases as you want.

ammunitiontogo.com , is usually not only the cheapest, but also generally has it in stock. 140 per case, with real world shipping cost, was what it was last time I checked.

the remmy is made by eley, with a remmy label on it; I have a sneaking suspicion, that any mach 2 round built by eley, that does not live up to it's strictest standards, especially for runout lenght, gets put into a remmy box. I cannot prove it, just my suspicions. Eley finally decided to really standardize runout, overall lenght of carts, to help some of the mach 2 chamber/bbl guys, use eley as their standard, so they can better make their bbls/chambers.

Eley does make Remington, but it is black tip, not blue tip, so I don't think it is the "sorted bad stuff".

However, I suspect the Rem stuff IS made at the end of production runs or when the machines need to be adjusted. The Remington I purchased from Natchez was worse than my lots of Eley in terms of COAL variance and run-out.

But that isn't saying much. Among the blue-tip Eley, OAL varried from 9.975 - 1.003", and typical run-out was .004 measured on bullet, with run-out up to .012 on some cases. LOTs of cases with .006-.007 run-out.
