Winchester 42 grainers

Recommended Posts

Had some boxes of the 42 grain “USA” production subbies and took then back. Issues with them not all being subsonic and hence not grouping - no real surprise there. A shame as I’ve been more than happy with both the 40’s & 42’s for many a year which from memory were produced in Australia? 
The US stuff was in different packaging, loose in a smaller box sort of top n tailed as opposed to all sitting in a little tray.

I got 500 Norma a few weeks ago just because they were the cheapest in the shop and they are spot on in the little cz, I stopped using Winnie’s because they were to inconsistent and went onto CCI and they were good, I think they were £9 a hundred

They are what I got, first time I’ve used them and they are spot on

Went out this morning and put a few rounds through the rifle. Eley not bad, Norma a bit spready but CCI were virtually spot on. 

Will give them another trial next week.

Gave the CCI a bashing this morning  while zeroing my scope in and they were perfect.  So CCi for me.

Not used the 42 at all yet, but got 500+ of new (old stock) 40g from a pal a few weeks back, seem fine!

Have they actually stopped making the 40g, I think they have?

Think they were replaced with the 42g

42 are spot on in mine {anshultz} better than 40 g winchesters

Had no issues with the original 42’s but would recommend no bulk purchase of the new style stuff until you try a box.
