Post Recommended ammo for BSA Martini
Hi guys.

What ammo do you find works best in the BSA? Secondly where can I buy some. I have been using CCI Standard up to now, but the rounds are quite tight going into the chamber. I have had the odd failure to eject. I have heard that Eley are good. What do you think?

I'll think you'll find any ammunition will be tight in the chamber alan simply because the bsa's have a tight match chamber. Anything i put into my martini shoots very well, and i found the cci standard a great round. Maybe give yours a lick of a chamber brush ?

Hi Alan, Eley sport green box or Eley subsonic hollow point, that's what I use.

John Kavanagh Fingal Sport has various target ammo's.

Alan the cci is ok for hunting but its not consistent,the Eley sport green box or Eley subsonic hollow point are good, as you know yourself you find a round that suits your fire arm best.I found that the Lapua centre X works best in mine when the barrel warms up on a good day at 50 meters i can practically put five rounds in the one hole,the Lapua centre X is a little more expensive than the Eley but if it works its worth the extra couple of euro Jk has that ammo too.

Picked up some Winchester T22 today. I'll try it out tomorrow. Not much choice in the local dealer. Must pop up to Fingal and get some ammo from John. I can get R50 and Tenex ok, but a bit pricey for me. Especially when I have a. 303 to feed. Nearly out of that too.

I started shooting a Mk2 International at 15 years old with Eley club and I use the same ammunition to this day on my Mk2 Inter. It is a different rifle however it still shoots well for the Club. I have always believed that rifle manufacturers would have always tested with local ammunition hence Eley for a BSA.

Same applies to reloading, European components for European rifles and American components for USA rifles. As an example Sierra bullets always seem to to well in a Rem 700 and Lapua in an AI.
