I don't recommend Federal .22 ammo. They always jam our Marlin 60's along with my friends semi-auto. They might be cheap, but you get what you pay for with those.

Yup. I think all guns hate the Federal .22's. I wonder what's the deal with them. We stocked up on a bunch of Federal .22's (around 2,000 I believe) only to find out they dont agree with our lead-slingers!

To the OP, make sure the ammo works good in your gun before you go buying bulk packages.

Good advice, i wouldn't buy bulk until i know it functions flawlessly in my gun/guns. My .22 long rifle semi auto didn't like the federals all that much either. Its ashamed, federals are easily to acquire and cheap.

To the OP, not trying to say I've looked everywhere, because I haven't. But every place I did look, by the time you paid shipping on case lots, the overall savings just wasn't there to buy .22lr in big bulk. It just made more sense to grab a few bricks here and there whenever it's on sale.
