For testing the accuracy of 22's I used CCI Green Tag ammo for many years as a base test. I found that most 22's liked that round and had very good luck with it. As you most likely know each 22 is different and some like one brand over another.

I use nothing but CCI Blazer 40gr LRN.They are essentially MiniMags but with no copper coat,they always shoot the same whether I buy 50 or 1,000 at a time,and I usually can get them for $1.50 a box of 50.

Well like others have said, I'll vote for CCI mini mags.

CCI Blazers seem to be the best of the budget ammo that I've tested.

I buy it for $165 case shipped from here...

Federal Gold Match. 10 shots at 50 yards by an eight year old aiming at the bottom-center line of the orange circle

Rimfire firearms have a mind of their own, when it comes to ammo. Most of the time, the accuracy goes up with better quality control. Better quality control costs more, and as a result so does the ammunition. A couple of my rifles shot sub-moa with Federal 900B, but they quit making it. Eley EPS black box shot excellent in several of my match rifles, but couldn't afford it any more. Currently Wolf MT shoots better in the majority of my rifles than anything else for the same money.

Find what yer rifle likes, and buy as much of it as you can afford.

Sometimes you just have to break down and clean the

dirt out of the gun. I picked up my Marlin with a clean barrel but very

dirty guts. One thorough cleaning, with a light oiling,

brought it from sticky and jammy

to works every time.

CCI is much better than 500 bricks, but you're paying about twice

as much.

IME the CCI cycles the pistols much better.

Blazer is made by CCI, nice reliable offbrand at a slightly lower price.
Its rare as heck for either to have issues.

I like Federal Automatch bulk too

Wouldn't give a plugged nickel for RGB's...
