I don't carry, but I do a lot of plinking and hunting. I always use Federal ammo from Walmart. It is inexpensive and quality is consistent. Their bulk rimfire cycles well in my autos and is plenty accurate for me. My family and I have harvested many deer with their regular Power Shoks in 243, 30-30, 308, 270 and 30-06. These centerfire cartridges group well and perform as designed.
