very good Eley for the price.. it's a little hot compared to most Std. Velocities but same as Target and Club.

stuff shoots very well.

There are a few threads on this ammo already. I was initially skeptical of the dogfood packaging (and still am), but it's looking pretty good for the price.

The nagging question is, "how many fliers do you get per 1,000?" when it's packaged like that. N=?

I bought a case and sorted by rim thickness using the Paul Bike gage:
http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/pbike257-rimfire-rim-thickness-gauges-for-sale-new-product.3932169/

I decided to allow all rounds with rims between .044" and .048" since approximately 96% of the rounds fell within this range.

I found some rims as thin as .036" and as thick as .054".   When the weather warms up I will set up the Lab Radar and test the norm and the high and low deviations for velocity.

I also discovered one or two cases without bullet or powder per 500 round box.  

For accuracy the ammo within shoots good but I haven't tested it on the Ransom Rest.  

Would I buy another case?  Maybe but sorting takes me a hour per 1000.  
If velocity testing reveals a low standard deviation and the pistols function without flaw, I will buy another case.

For reference I sorted a few boxes of Norma TAC-22.  I found a norm and high and low rim thicknesses but not as much as with the Eley.  I'm guessing that one pays for Eley higher grade ammo being sorted and accuracy tested.

I've got a case.  Haven't tried it in my pistols thru a Ransom Rest yet but I will when the weather warms up.  I have shot it in two bench rifles, however, and found it very accurate.  Both rifles shot 5 shot groups at 100 yds of 1/2" give or take.  Shot some known accurate TenX for comparison and the groups were very similar.  

So, at this time, I would say for the price it is a buy.  Might change my mind when I try the pistols, but so far, so good.
