Hey D,

Wow! Those are some sure fine pistols!!

Years of FUN ahead!!

Would try CCI Standard Velocity first....some of the High Standards have a taste for RWS or Eley ammo?? YMMV..

Later, Mark
CCI ammo seems to be the worst in these guns...Federal and RWS (the most expensive) shoot flawlessly. My CCI ammo is five years old so I just bought another brick of newer ammo
to try out. I'm thinking maybe some spray bullet lube or a quick swipe with Rem-Oil. I'll have some more time at the range next week to find out.

Federal Auto Match is a good choice.

I know a couple of gentlemen that have/had High Standards....most shot best with Eley or RWS... $$!!

The one fellow had a "Space Gun".... and it really liked the priciest "Eley" ammo! Proved it on the Ransom Rest every Spring, when we got ready for the Out Door League (50yd/25yd) :D

A late friend of mine had a pair of Victors, am thinking the "mid grade"? RWS was their "favorite fodder"?? LOL

Have fun!

I am late to the party on this thread but, being the owner of a 107 Victor and 107 Citation, it caught my eye. A bit of research on these pistols will reveal that the H.S. experts suggest using only standard velocity (1070 FPS) ammo in these pistols. The reason is that the use high velocity ammo has caused frame cracks in these old guns. Obviously, the metallurgy of the era of their production wasn’t up to the standards of today. The current wisdom of the High Standard faithful is to use CCI standard velocity as your primary choice. I use several brands but try to stay under 1100 FPS.

It's never too late! I have found the following ammo to work in all of my High Standards
Federal Gold Medal target 40gr.
CCI Standard Velocity 40gr
RWS Target Rifle 40gr
Remington Target 40gr

Of the above, Remington is the dirtiest burning and Federal Target has the "waxiest" lube. A quick swab and a drop of lube fixes both.
