    A tragic loss, if true...

    A tragic loss, if true...

    CYA friends:


    I just heard a rumor that is tragic, if true..

    SK SSHP and HVHP ammo is no longer being made.

    Surly to God this rumor is not true.

    _____________________

    What a tragic loss for the world of advancing rimfire accuracy, if SK has actually stopped making these two bullets..

    _________________

    See CYA friends, these are hollow point bullets.....so we can safely push the slug both ways..

    And, they have the black oxide finish, which makes reading the slugs, for several reason, much more accurate than a natural lead colored slug.

    And then they are so easy to remove from the case...

    ____________________________

    By the way, I do not recommend anyone pull bullets from live ammo to use for slugging....

    ____________________

    CYA friends, surely the rumor of SK stopping production of these two bullets is false...


    ___________________________

    Over the years I've used thousands of these two HP, SK bullets......and I've never fired a single round of them...

    And I ain't alone......

    Man I hope this rumor isn't true....

    Better stock up Bill. One case and you could slug as long as your arm would last. I don't think it costs that much. They have it at the Lapua test center for sale but don't test it.

    Just as an aside, the CMP and Eley have teamed up with some kind of offering for about $325 a case. Probably some good stuff.

    Maybe a replacement

    I am thinking SK is gone but there may be a replacement. Fiocchi has a HP that appears to have the blackened surface. I donít know if they are as easy to remove as SK. I am thinking of getting a box OF Fiocchi to try. I have a brick of SK, I canít find any for sale.

    Friend JH:


    I did not know anything about SK stopping the manufacture of the SSHP ammo......or even the HVHP ammo...

    Until Jeff Patterson told me yesterday he tried to purchase some, and there was none to be found.

    ______________________

    So is the rumor true?

    Has SK stopped making the SSHP ammo, that we've all used for years now for slugging?


    Before we figure what to do next about slugging slugs, we need to know for sure.

    Your friend, BC

    PS:

    Does SK still make the SSHP ammo we've used for years to slug with?

    If not, serious seekers of rimfire accuracy advancement need to do something....bc
