Default CCI minimags..........BUT!

only the round nose.

hollow points don't shoot nearly as well.

(disclaimer! this applies only to me & my guns, of course. your results may vary.)

I have shot it all in a number of pistols and rifles, all my guns will shoot some things better than others but all like the Federal Target, cream color box 325count. I have had good luck with the Rem. Golden bullet also. I have shot a couple thousand CCI's and I think they are over rated. I too found them dirty. The Eley is great in my highly customize Ruger 10-22 but at 17.00 + a box don't shoot much of it. Some of my pistols just do not like the Win. X pert while others are ok with it, The win works pretty good in all the rifles except the S&W 15-22 that like the Golden bullet. Point is you have to match the ammo to the gun.

I have been successful with Winchester, Federal, and CCI..................As far as I am concerned all of the Remington stuff is crap in auto loaders, but will work in bolt action and revolvers.

This is very true about guns being selective. My savage loves Winchester. My marlon loves fiocchi. My wides pistols shoots remongtons Winchester and cgi mm about equall. All of mine hate blazer. Federals shoot but with a noticeable accuracy decrease.

I use either CCI Stingers, or Rem Yellow Jackets in my Rem Nylon 66 rifle, & in my Ruger Single Six pistol for hunting Chucks & Rabbits & other up to med size game with them & never any problems with either brand of this ammo.

Not just CCI but CCI Stingers they have never failed me. Clean and accurate, never a jam in 35 years. Old Ruger Standard and misc revolvers.
