Top firearm brands.
 
I can not personally vouch for this story, but I came across it in a newsletter, "Page Nine", by Alan Korwin.

Southwick Associates has completed an extensive survey of the top brands in the shooting sports. It is part of a 238-page report that received so much coverage you have never even heard of it. Are you using the top brands? Here they are:

Top rifle brand: Remington (17.5% of all purchases)
Top shotgun brand: Remington & Mossberg (virtual tie with 21.5% of all purchases)
Top muzzleloader brand: Thompson Center (31.9% of all purchases)
Top handgun brand: Sturm Ruger (16.7% of all purchases)
Top scope for firearms: Bushnell (17.1% of all purchases)
Top rifle ammunition brand: Remington (25.3% of all purchases)
Top shotgun ammunition brand: Winchester (31.9% of all purchases)
Top handgun ammunition brand: Winchester (22.0% of all purchases)
Top blackpowder brand: Pyrodex (38.7% of all purchases)

It's cheap, appeals to the masses, and is probably fine for the people that don't get as deep into the sport/hobby as we do.

Whats wrong with Remmy ammo? Its what i mostly use, and ive never had any problems.. Federal is the ammo I hate.. I always get 2-3 rounds per box that are duds (per box of 50). The Federal .22's have a 5" drop at 100yds and tons of duds compared to the Remington .22's I buy... Im sure its not "match" quality, but I dont need to spend alot to plink.... Most of my rifles are mil-surps and I shoot the cheap mil-surp ammo outta them anyways....
