Default +1 Always had best luck with Federal bulk .22 ammo

I don't shoot nearly as much as I used to, but used to burn between 2500 - 3000 rounds of .22 LR a week. I've tried them all and agree with you 30-30 the Federal has always given me the best performance as well as reliability, and yes I bought most of my .22 ammo at Wal-Mart. I buy CCI Stingers, Winchester Power Point, etc. from a couple of local gun shops, but they just can't compete with the amount of ammo that Wal-Mart buys.

Its just RGB's that are totally horrible, doesn't matter if you get 'em from Walmart or your local gun shop.
RGB's just SUCK!!

Remington dropped the ball on their .22lr rounds, been that way for almost 50 years...ever hear of ThunderDuds?? (Remington Thunderbolts)
Killer centerfire ammo, but don't even bother with their rimfire offerings.

I need to go to the range; but, the weather wind - gusts this week has been bad. The wife and I did go this past Friday - she had some Fail-to-Fire and Fail-to-Eject with Federal 550 pack, might have been operator error in loading the 10 rounders in the Browning Buckmark Camper.

I usually shoot the Blazer CCI 525 bulk pack, that was $16.99 and now is $20.99 in price. I have not had an FTF in the S&W M&P 15-22 or the other .22LR's. What pushed me to Blazer CCI was Remington crap that caused the M&P 15-22 extractor to explode into 3 pieces, lucky all were on the shooting table and I was able to re-assemble.

Still cheap to shoot; but, when you go to the grocery store and see a pack of brats and a week later the price has gone up. How much you shoot, even with .22LR rounds comes into play!

I use the federal 500 boxes. They are accurate, consistent, and have very few misfires. I have used the remingtons.. i do not like them... first off their boxes are TERRIBLE and fall apart all the time. And they tend to not be very consistent. I can shoot one and it goes bang... then the next goes pop.. the next goes ping.... you get the point..
