There's a variety of problems with Remington .22lr ammo...

Loose crimp
oversized bullets
undersized bullets
short powder loads
no powder loads
spotty primer in casing
no primer in casing

In short, everything you don't ever want to deal with, happens in Remington Golden Bullet & Thunderbolts.

Strangely, some folks have reported quite nice results...for awhile...
but eventually, they'll post up with ammo problems.
Give 'em time...and a few boxes.

HIya Tony

yeah, G&G has been dying lately, due to hunting season...argh
I've bumped them back to a once-every-three-days login.

I've got enough fix & repair posts there to choke a mule...LOL

I love Remington rifles..I do not like their 22 ammo though. The Federa bulk ammo is about the best for what I"m shooting.A couple pistols and several rifles and it works great in all of them.

Also try the Federal Auto Match. It comes in boxes of 325. I paid about $14. a box wholesale for mine. It's one of the most accurate Federal 22 ammo's.

The Remington Golden Bullet Bulk Packs are pure crap. You'll have nothing but trouble with them. FTF, FTE, poor accuracy, you name it, they've got it all. I can't believe Remington gets away with putting out such awful ammunition. They know how bad they are, they just don't care.

On the other hand, the Federal 550 Bulk Packs at Walmart are very good. My 5 -.22's all love them. I rarely have any trouble with any of them and get nickle-size groups at 50 yards using them in my rifles.

PS. Ditto on the Federal and just about anything else over Remington. Be advised Wally World usually also carries "Winchester 333"; these are boxes of 333 rounds of 36gr plated HP 1280fps, which I have found very reliable and inexpensive. There are a lot of good ammo options here.
