Federal bulk is my third choice of round. Also very reliable this far, though I've only done the green box high velocity hollow points. I'm sure the red is fine as well.

If you are really just "plinking" and shooting paper and cans I don't see a need to spend more on ammo than you would for .22 ammo.

For casual plinking, yes.

For serious practice, no!

For inherent accuracy, yes.

Wow, should you get such a plinker? I wish I were there to see the silly smile you won't be able to wipe off your face the first time you shoot a mag full of decent .22 (don't buy the cheapest stuff you can find -- spend the extra coula dollars).

Ruger triggers are not known for being excellent out of the box and will need work and/or replacement about the same time as you have reached a level where you're able to disassemble and assemble it quickly. You'll see...

If youre not going to be plinking at 50 yards

The phoenix HP22a is excellent , 150.00 eats anything 9+1 , reliable and TONS OF FUN also its about the size of the pt22 so it makes a excellent backup gun as well
