We’re excited to reveal that our hunting round, ELEY subsonic has been nominated in the ‘Rifle Ammunition of the Year’ category at the 2020 Great British Shooting awards. But we need your help.

The awards are voted for by the public, so we’re asking you to please vote for ELEY subsonic! Voting opened 1st October and will run until the 31st December.

Once all the votes are in, an independent panel of judges will review the results before the winners are announced at an exclusive ceremony at the British Shooting Show in February 2020.

Just last month, the press were praising ELEY subsonic in their reviews. Read what they had to say:

  • “Eley’s newer 38-gr bullet is always accurate and the Ruger shot 1,051fps at 93ft/lb with superb 0.50in, 50-
yard groupings.” – Bruce Potts, Shooting UK.
  • “It’s my first choice in hunting loads in the 1,200 fps class, for any accuracy-obsessed hunter who wants hollow points. It shoots cleaner than most other .22 LRs, too” – Michael R Shea, Field & Stream.
  • “Incredibly quiet and lethal, Eley’s Subsonic Hollow load delivers hunting performance with match-grade accuracy. Not surprisingly, Eley’s 38-grain load posted a best group of .57 inch and showed very little deviation in velocity.” – Eric Conn, Guns & Ammo.
Michael Atkinson, Brand Manager for ELEY, commented:

“We’re thrilled to be recognised for our hunting ammunition. ELEY subsonic is essential ammo for any small vermin shooter. It gives us even more pride to know that the shortlist is a result of trade nominations from those using the ammo day-in day out. As a British brand, it’s great to see support from local businesses. For us, this reinforces the quality of our product. Nevertheless, we are up against four other strong contenders so we need the public to vote for us.”

ELEY subsonic hollow is a hunting cartridge with target shooting accuracy and reduced velocity. With its innovative hollow nosed profile, the projectile delivers unequalled expansion characteristics, resulting in short penetration with outstanding stopping power.
