    Default Better ammo with a round nosed bullet (not Eley EPS) for CLE Upper?

    I've always been an Eley guy, but my new Compass Lake upper won't feed any Eley ammo that uses the EPS bullet. Round nosed bullets only. I've been through their lineup and haven't found anything that really performs in this barrel. I'm seeing 1 moa ish at 100y.

    I've tried Lapua Center X and SK Standard plus. Both because I had them lying around. Neither shot well. I'm not familiar with the other premium .22 brands. What's out there that might have potential and uses a round nosed bullet?

    RWS is good stuff and comes in lots of flavors.
    You could also look into Eley Target/Club/Etc they have a round nose and are much cheaper. The yellow box "Eley Target" is awesome in my Anny.

    Eley match pistol and TenX pistol are not EPS bullets.

    Pedro, I've tried Target and Club. Some old Target was pretty good, but the new stuff is just average. I tested three or four lots each of Target and Club. Club is the winner if I don't find something better. I'll get some RWS to try.

    I'd forgotten our conversation about Eley pistol ammo being round nose, Hose. Thanks for reminding me. The
