Ammunition maker Eley announced a new partnership with the Civilian Marksmanship Program to offer a bulk pack of ammo to consumers.

The ELEY CMP standard bulk pack is an exclusive product aimed at aiding CMP’s efforts to encourage safe firearm practices in addition to offering competitions to beginner through experienced shooters. CMP is a 501(c)(3) corporation that, in addition to offering competitions and educational opportunities, donates over $100,000 each year in scholarships to junior athletes.

The bulk pack features a 40-grain bullet with an average velocity of 1,090 feet per second. The round includes a paraffin wax coating for easier feeding and cycling through all .22LR firearm platforms.

“Eley is excited to partner with the CMP to offer an accurate, affordable ammunition for shooters in a true bulk package. With the CMP working to encourage youth shooting, Eley finds this partnership a perfect fit,” Mike Corkish, Eley Americas Director of Sales, said in a press release. “As shooters continue to improve they have the opportunity to purchase other grades of Eley ammunition through the CMP. This will continue to help the CMP grow competition shooting and encourage safe firearm practices.”

CMP will feature the bulk pack on its webstore in addition to the rest of the ELEY product line. The bulk pack will ship with 5,000 rounds in 10 boxes and is priced at $354.95.
