[b]Norma Match 22 same as RWS Target Rifle?[/b]

Is Norma Match 22 the same ammo as RWS Target rifle or is it more like RWS 100?

Thank you in advance!

Definitely more along the lines of RWS Target. Norma Match sells 70% less than RWS 100. There's no way they're comparable in quality control and manufacturing process.

It could be...

TAC-22 = RWS Target Rifle
Match-22 = RWS Rifle Match

But I can't say for sure.

I could believe it’s from the same line as RWS Target Rifle, but not R100.

One of my 22BPCR rifles shoots great with R100 out to 150/200 (haven’t tried R50 in it yet), but I do get some occasional unexplainable flyers with RWS Target Rifle and either of the popular Norma products at those distances. Same gun shoots pretty much everything SV acceptability well (within my current skill level) out to 100.

My .02,

Thank you all very much for the feedback.

I tested Norma Match 22 against RWS Target rifle and my Badger-barreled Uberti 1885 High Wall showed a preference for the RWS ammo.
My Winchester 52 liked neither. Now let's see what the Sako Finnfire says...
