Designed to help win “club” shooting matches, ELEY Club ammo is a premium rimfire offering suitable for shooters who desire accuracy without the high cost of match-grade ammo. This ammo uses coated 40 grain lead round nose (LRN) bullet in a brass case. At a muzzle velocity of 1085 fps, ELEY Club is “standard velocity” or subsonic ammo, resulting in more consistent ballistics and noticeably improved synergy with suppressors due to the absence of sonic boom.
A British ammunition manufacturer located near Birmingham, England, ELEY is known for supplying serious shooters around the world with high quality ammo. Top-level competitors in the Olympics and World Cup overwhelmingly prefer ELEY for their precision rifles. In the 2012 London Summer Olympics, 14 out of 18 medal winners used ELEY ammunition, and in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, every single gold medalist used ELEY ammo.
In business since 1828, ELEY operates as a subsidiary of engineering conglomerate Imperial Metal Industries or IMI plc. The company has a long history of doing business in the United States; in 1855, it claimed a joint patent with Samuel Colt for revolver cartridges. Although the company currently specializes in high-end rimfire ammunition, it has also made history in centerfire production with innovations including the revolutionary Boxer primer in the 1860s.
