Thats a long debated subject on a lot of rimfire forums. I think it was the cost of Quality Control. The components, brass, lead bullets, powder is about the same for Match Grade vs say Remington thunder bolts, or Remington Golden bullets. Quality control is highly human hands on and costly. For example Eley subjects every Tenex round to numerous Automated and manual inspections. Their priming system is reguarded as the best. Consistant and accurate 22 is just like center fire. Every round has to be the closest to the same in all aspects of the round. In centerfire ALL the Match grade is Hand loaded by the shooter, the ones that win anyway. Hand loaded 22 is not even allowed in ANY shooting venue. It is highly dangerous to produce due to priming, and Cost prohibitive. Companys like Eley, Lapua, ect made the decision to produce the BEST in the world cost not considered. Kind of like their Guns, Cars, ect.I did not know that,SWO1! Thanks for the info. Why is it that we quit making match grade?
