I have 4500 rounds, one brick short of this case, of CCI-SV that I would like to sell. Please note, that this case has excessive wax on some of the bullets, and I am getting a 2% or so failure to fire from light strikes due to the rounds not fully chambering. I will not use this for competition. I get easily frustrated when a gun malfunctions, so I don't even want to use it for training. I'm sure it would work just fine in a bolt action rifle. Or if failures don't bother you, it could be used for training. I will not ship, I don't want to go through the hassles. If you live with in driving distance of Princeton Illinois, pick it up in person. $150. 

I have intentions of attending a couple of the indoor matches at Milan Illinois in Jan. Feb. or March. I could bring them with me if they don't sell before then.

CCI finally decided to take these back, so no longer for sale.

Are they going to replace it? And if so, with what?

According to CCI, they can not ship ammo to anywhere in Illinois, which is a mistake on their part. I had it shipped right to my front door by Target Sports USA. So they are going to send me a refund check. Which is ok with me, I'm not sure I want any CCI ammo until they get their act together as I've been reading a lot of complaints about it lately.

I had same issue with wax on their 22 short target sv, packs of 100.  Seems that bullets are coated with a thin layer of wax for lubrication, which is normal, but then stored somewhere where heat got to them. So all that wax melted and ran down to the bottom of the case, causing excessive wax build up on about 3-4 rows.  This may have been at the factory or along the distribution, or the store. So it may not be CCI fault.

Well they have to anticipate their ammo being shipped in extreme heat. The inside of a tractor trailer can probably reach 120-130F easily in the Summer. The wax has to be formulated properly to stay in place.
