Best match grade 22lr ammo
 
I'm planning to purchase some match grade 22LR ammo for my Browning BL22. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

There are dozens of different "Match" rounds in 22 LR. Some are going to run you about $18/ 50 rounds. Would suggest you try CCI Green tag, and Wolf Match 22 for starters.

I use Wolf Match, but I wish I could afford to shoot this. It's supposed to be the best, but it's very expensive.

Thing is, EACH rifle acts slightly differently with each brand of Match ammo.

The ONLY way to figure out what yours likes the best, is buy a couple boxes of each brand and shoot 'em.
Record EVERYTHING in your Shot Journal...if you don't have one, get a spiral notebook & make one.
You will basically be playing Sniper...use their (Army/Marine) tactical knowledge for best results.

Agree w/ Big Shrek. Despite a very good rep, I have one rifle that HATES TenX. Another that loves it. I think it had something to do with the phase of the moon when the iron ore for the barrel was mined. Try as many as you can, and see what works for you.

Thanks for the feedback! Looking forward to applying your suggestions.
