A moment ago I was able to order some Eley Contact ammo. Order is limited to 1 case (5,000 rounds).

Just went back to the website and they have Eley Force in stock also.

I don't know if you can order both at the same time.

Any idea as to which ammo the CMP was selling?  
Was it one of these?

Killough has Eley Club, which is 40GR.  I think, they ran production of ammo with Paraffin Wax.  Everything in Eley's line up using Beeswax-tallow is not available.

Just looked at the Killough web page.

The Eley Force is gone.

Website still shows Contact in stock. Poking around, Eley Club is also in stock (Club has a 40 gr bullet, $7.99/box of 50; Contact has a 42 grain bullet @ $4.99/box)

It looks to me that .22 ammo with a bullet heavier than 40 grains isn't allowed by Rule 3.4.22.

You're looking at an old Rule Book.   Rule 3.4.22 does not exit any more.

CMP only allows 40gr for EIC. I believe cdrt is correct regarding NRA.

The Eley ammo that CMP was selling is, AFAIK, specially made for CMP and is not exactly the same as any of the normal Eley product lines. I found it to be slightly stronger than Eley Target (Yellow box), but not as strong as Bullseye Pistol X. Maybe it is close to Eley Club, but I have not shot that in a very long time and therefore can't offer a direct comparison.

Yes, I was referring to the NRA rule, since that's what he was quoting.  The bullet weight for .22s went away at least by 2016, since that NRA Rule Book states any bullet weight for the .22 was okay.  I still have a paper copy of that rule book. The current NRA Rule Book deleted that reference all together.  I did not think to link the question to the CMP rules.  Oops.

Maybe someone can help me - I used to buy cases of Eley bulk 22 ammo, 5,000 rounds, which I could purchase twice a year because I belong to a club that is connected to/with the CMP.  The CMP e-store no longer lists this bulk ammo, and I was never able to find out what Eley product name described it?

I like the way this ammo worked in my guns, and the price was very reasonable.  Is the same bulk ammo currently available from anyone else, and if so, does anyone have a link to it?

It was very affordable.  Wish I could buy another case.
Not knowing what it was makes it difficult to search for it.

Time for this old man to throw away all those old NRA rule books! How confusing to have different rules for CMP sponsored matches.

Mike, hang on to them. It's nice to have some "corporate knowledge" to research to see how things change and why.  I have copies of all the older CMP rule books.
