Federal 550 Bulk is eaten ammo for the Ruger SR22 and Buckmark Camper. The S&W MP 15-22 requires Blazer CCI.

The only FTF's were operator error in loading the magazine!

I guess I need to buy a box and compare FTF's. I shot about 200 rounds of Remington thunderbolt last time I was out and had 2 duds. I feel it's less common with the Federal bulk 550 but I'll need to go shooting and verify.

My Walther P22 likes the auto match. No issues so far!

The S&W is set in it ways! Does not like the 36 gr Federal; prefers the 40 gr Blazer. I might try the Aguila SSS Subsonic Ammo 60 gr.

I questioned on get the this ammo and now it is back ordered from Cabela's .22LR Tracer Bulk Ammo for out to 150 yards!

Understood, but not talking about the regular Federal bulk ammo. I've seen several 22s choke on that. The Federal Auto Match is a 40gr solid, and I haven't yet see a gun that won't shoot it. Not saying that they don't exist, but I haven't encountered one yet. Even the ultra picky Sig Mosguito shot it. And I've been eyeing a S&W, I'd be curious to know if it worked, especially since I have a bunch of the Auto Match on hand.

IMHO those Thunderbolts are pure crap...
IMHO those Federal "Lightning" are almost pure crap but for $1.97 for 50, I'll get over it...

Picked up a box of the 325 you were asking about yesterday and ran 200ish through my unmodified 10/22. No FT-anythings. Performance wise they're not quite as good as the Fed 550"s, but still pretty decent.

Fed 550-36g hp 1260 fps
Fed target grade-40g solid 1200 fps

I was getting roughly the same drop at 100 yards with both. The 550's seemed to perform just a little better.

Anyone have a review they could offer on the new target grade performance rounds? Specifically I am interested in accuracy, reliability and if they jam every other round.
Results of ten rounds of the Federal ammo at 50 yards out of a custom 10/22.
