That will certainly shorten a range session. The two times I've been a little heavy with the oil I couldn't get 100 rounds though it. The first time I had no idea what was happening until I got home. The second time, I knew the minute it started feed poorly. It was still a rookie mistake and I should have caught it before I got to the range.

Buy some Break-Free CLP and a Bore Snake. Clean up after even really dirty 22 LR is pretty simple with those two items.

Whats the deal with everybody hatin' on Remington .22's?
My experience has been the opposite.... I buy the Remington golden bullet packs quite regularly.. Ive never had any more problems than shooting other "cheap" bulk pack ammo.. (I never buy the expensive stuff, dont see any reason to)
I would say I get less than 5 "duds" per 500 rds. no matter what brand I use...

I was comparing the Remington golden bullet bulk pack (555 ct) to the Federal bulk pack (550 ct) and found outta my guns the Federal had a additional 6" drop at 100 yds compared to the Rem. It seemed to me the Federal is "weak" and the Rem was more accurate at longer distances.

I tried this is both my Weatherby Mark XXII (older, semi-auto version) and my Winchester Model 63, and got pretty much the same results..

i use both the remington bulk pack and the federal bulk pack ammo in my marlin m60 and have had no problems with either. both function well, but in mine the remington ammo groups just a little better, but not much. so i usually buy whichever one is available or cheaper.

i currently have on my shelf federal, remington, winchester, cci mini mags, cci blazer.. have not had the chance to try the cci stuff yet. but out of the rest. remington is by far the worst... its dirty, and much less accurate out of my rifles. my marlin bolt will still throw it okay so i can use it up. my savage semi, loves the winchester. and ive always been happy with the results the federal gives me out of all my rifles,
as far as duds, i would say they have all been about the same so far. probly 10 or less per bulk box.. and more times than not i'll twist the round and it will shoot out of my bolt rifle on a second attempt.

winchester is the cleanest of all of them as far as i can tell. but after a few hundred rounds. dirt is dirt.

I guess the old sayin' applys for .22's too... Different strokes for different folks..

I've had good luck with the Remington Golden Bullets in their 525 and 550 bulk packs, but a lot of people are reporting problems. It seems to be dirtier than some others but not to the point I have to clean it before I empty one or two of the bulk packs.

Some of the complainers just need to clean their rifles a little better and it would run okay. Others are reporting experience from years ago when Remington rimfire was a problem, but they haven't bought the newer stuff to bother checking it. Can't really blame them though, it didn't work before so it's not likely to work now considering all the complaints. Then there are others who just have guns that don't like Remington, but that's typical with any rimfire rifle or or pistol. They'll prefer one over another for no good reason.

You also have those who just repeat what they've read on the web, but have no idea of what they're talking about since they never actually used it.

I've read this: "so many complaints voiced about Remington Golden Bullets as well as Thunderbolts that Remington shut down their production line in an effort to determine the problem." regarding Remington ammo, but I can't confirm if it's true or just idle gossip.
