New Eley Ammunition for MSRs


Ely announced the company was now making two new .22 LR loads for AR-style rifles (aka modern sporting rifles.) The two loads are called Force and Contact.

Force is a supersonic load using a 42 grain bullet with a rated muzzle velocity of 1,200 fps. Eley describes the round as having “extreme knock down force.”

Contact is a subsonic load designed to properly function in a MSR with lower recoil and noise. The load uses a 42 grain projectile and is rated at 1,090 fps at the muzzle.

    Any info on the bullets themselves? Hollow point? Jacketed? Coated?

    It reminds me of the old Winchester Silhouette load, glad to see a manufacturer bring it back. It especially makes sense in the subsonic loading as it promotes weapon cycling and it hits just a little harder than the 40gr.
