50 rounds RWS Premium Line R50 40 Grain .22LR Ammo is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ammo, but a much cheaper alternatives exist R-50 is RWS' flagship ammo, along with the higher velocity R-100. As the names suggest, R-50 is marketed for up to 50 yards, where as R-100 is 100 yards. This ammo is in the same tier as Lapua Midas and Eley Match (different guns do better with different ammo, so which works best for you depends on your own situation and firearm.)Is this ammo worth the price? Unless you are using it for competition, not in my opinion. RWS makes a line called "Special Match". This ammo is actually R-50 ammo but from lots that are not as consistent as the ammo labeled with the R-50 name. In reality, the ammo is identical and the performance difference between Special Match and R-50 is generally very minor, yet Special Match can be found for 40%+ less than R-50. RWS also has Rifle Match (one tier below Special Match), and Target Rifle (one tier below Rifle Match.) RWS Target Rifle is in fact the same ammo used with Geco ammo...which you can often find for 1/3rd the price of R-50. In reality, even the 'lower grade' RWS Target/Geco Bolt Action .22 is VERY consistent for accurate plinking beyond what most .22 ammo is capable of. Like Eley and Lapua, all of the above-mentioned ammo is quite greasy...and while beneficial for accuracy and barrel life, it can get a little messy.So unless you are shooting in a competition, R-50 may not be financially viable. With that said, it is outstanding ammo (but like all .22, which guns do best with it vary, so you will have to experiment.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Ammo This stuff is over-priced German junk ammo. It claims to be high velocity but it's muzzle velocity per SG specs is less than 1200 fps...actually a little over 1050 fps which is standard velocity at best. It would not cycle an Interarms Mark II pistol which has no problem cycling with good quality HV ammo. However, SG gave me a fair credit so I'll shoot this stuff up in my rifle. Lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Target Ammo This 22 LR ammo is Premium ammo specifically designed for target competition at 50 meters. The company description is "Highest Precision at 50 meters". Above all else it is and must be very consistent. RWS is one of the top of the line companies for international level target ammo. "RWS R 50 is the cartridge of choice of numerous Olympic champions and world record holders." It shoots better than any other ammo I have found in my Anschutz 1913. It is expensive but comparably priced with the other top of the line competition target 22LR ammo from Eley and Lapua. RWS out performs Eley is my rifle. I strongly recommend RWS R50 for competition shooting in a competition level rifle. I can't imagine why anyone would buy it for plinking or non-competition use

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Outrageous price; low velocity This stuff is advertised as high velocity ammo but it has a muzzle velocity of slightly more than 1,000 fps. HV is generally accepted as being over 1200 fps. When you couple this with a price of 32-cents per round it's a really, really bad deal. I'm disappointed that SG is continuing to offer this stuff.
