Does anyone have experience with pistol match special in a rifle? Does it stay subsonic? The test barrels are 4 and 5 inches on sk’s website. I’d order some if I knew what to expect as far as rifle velocity.
From what I've read, PM Special is supposed to be the same velocity as Long Range Match, just a grade down. PM is supposed to be the same as Rifle Match, but a grade down. My numbers for RM and PM don't "exactly" line up, across the MagnetoSpeed V3 20" Vudoo Ace barrel; RM averaged 1077, PM averaged 1083...each of those were 50 rounds averaged the same day, weather was 81ºF, 29.62" pressure and 74% humidity.

    If anyone has a Scheels store local. Check them out. Normally I can find ammo cheaper online then there. But today after work I stopped in like I do every Friday.

    THEY HAD SK RIFLE MATCH FOR $6.99 A BOX!!

    Not sure if it was a typo but I grabbed 1500 rounds and out the door for 2 hundred something.

    That’s odd, I’m still only seeing the high velocity in stock. I’ll keep checking back.

    I just ordered the last 16 boxes of Lapua Midas Plus from Champion's Choice. Tried to order a case but this was all they had left. Good luck to all and hope you get your ammo.

    Wrong thread. That belongs under Where to NOT get ammo now.

    A place called ammoshoponline.com has RWS Rifle Match for $6.49/box which seems to be much lower than anywhere else if in stock.
    Have not heard of them so I just ordered one brick but they also say free shipping on $200.
    Thanks. I rolled the dice on this one. Haven’t tried RWS ammo but beggars can’t be choosers.

    The SK PM special is showing some promise. 73 yard off of railing 5 shot group. I will get some bench shooting in to make sure this wasn't just luck. I will gladly share the lot # then.
    Thanks. The reason I ask is in the past I’ve bought PMS a few times and it sucked. I bought a brick recently from CC it was real good, so I ordered a few more. I’m wondering if GoodShooting got some of the same stuff. I ordered a case of CenterX this morning from Kathy. If given a choice I’d buy from GoodShooting every time.

    Went out real quick to try it at 50 yards off the bench. When I settled down and did my job I think this stuff might be good 👍🏼. I haven’t gotten any muzzel velocities on it yet but the zero isn't far off. Haven't messed with the tuner either. On the 5 groups I dialed up and down and used the same point of aim. Got one real good group(bottom left)

    Champion's choice has Center X in stock. Probably will only last a few minutes. I checked CC about an hour ago and they were not showing it in stock, then saw post that Whidden's had it in stock, so ordered from them, lol. Cost me a few buck more from Whidden's but such is life.:)
