Are you sure it's 57? It is actually repacked Hungarian ammo that the South Africans captured at one time or another. The 22 factory code is known with years; 51, 52, 53, 54, 83, 84, 85. If you find any others, I'd love to get some examples.

Repacked, Dan's Ammo sold it about 4-5 years ago. Pretty inconsistant IIRC. Only good thing about this ammo was the reusable plastic cases it came in.

When Slim Tim mentioned the plastic cases it set off a pop-up in my mind. LOL

I bought this ammo and found it to be so inconsistent I pulled it for the components.

I felt cheated at the time, but used it all anyways.

I tried to pull the projectile and replace existing powder with new powder before I pulled all of the projectiles for component value.

I had too many bad primers and decided I wasted enough good stuff and time on this crap.

I was thinking this has to be crap the price was way low. I think i will take it to the pawn shop in town and let him unload it. Someone will buy it.
