Bad ELEY Club Ammo Eley_110
Bad ELEY Club Ammo LOT 3122-30028

just purchased 5 bricks of ELEY Club .22
i have shot 100 rounds with 10 fail to fire duds. That's 10% failure rate, 
there is a good dent on the primer. really unacceptable for ELEY ammo.
i sent ELEY an Email, maybe ill get a response, that really makes me upset.

Do you have another gun to try it in?

I usually disassemble the questionable rounds by pulling the bullet.
Empty the contents on white paper. See if there's primer all around the inside
of the rim, or if flakes of primer are floating around it the powder.

Curious to see what Eley has to say.

Just my opinion but those strikes don't look very strong. Is this by chance a 1911/22 conversion?

Be sure to clean your chamber with a .243 brush bent into an "L" shape so it will not go in any deeper than the chamber.  

.22's sometimes build up a wax ring, resulting in rounds not quite fully chambering.  It can become especially prevalent and noticeable when changing from one type of .22 ammo to another.

I bought two bricks of Eley Target since that was the ammo Travis used for the test target on the new barrel for my Marvel.  The FIRST shot from this new batch was a fffft that hit the 5-ring at 25yds.  The remaining nine shots all went off without issue but were certainly NOT very accurate.  I have to wonder if Eley has been having some manufacturing issues.

So much for test ammo!  I'll go back to and stick with my SK Pistol Match Special.

to date i have not received a reply from my Eley inquiry, looks like they are losing a customer. and just like MBMshooter I'm going back to SK ammo.

Still getting duds after chamber cleaning?
Do you get the same failure rate in another gun?
What did you find when you opened up a dud?
Pity Eley isn't responding.

Rush to make money vs good solid ammo, short staffed during the condemic etc, etc. This crap will be circulating for years. BTW... its not just Eley
