Please take under consideration that you are not allowed to take more than 5kg of ammunition on the plane, when flying into Greece. Moreover you have to go through the long and complicated application process for the important licence. Therefore it is most recommended to buy the ammunition for this match on the range.

The official match ammunition from GECO is supplied by the organiser of the World Shoot, therefore it is deemed to make major or minor irrespective of the power factor that is recorded with the chronograph.

So every competitor who is using GECO official match ammunition with the “IPSC” on the box will not need to worry about the power factor in their pistol or revolver.
The primer ignition and functional reliability will be of more importance to the shooter. The GECO match ammunition has been tested by the Practical Hand Gun Magazine. From the testing that the magazine carried out, primer ignition and functional reliability was 100% in all the calibres tested.
