That is some great shooting. I doubt my gun is capable of that but either way it's good to know that the ammo is.

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.
Next time out on the ammo run, will grab a box or two of the Federal Match. Last time at the range Federal Bulk 550 pack and Blazer CCI was used in the Ruger SR22. Buckmark has been firing the Federal.

Cabelas has it on sale alot. Also Walmart has the 550 for around $20. As far as I know those 2 packs are the same I don't notice a difference. My 522 and P22 love the stuff. I have a pack of the 325 match but, have'nt shot it yet.

The bulk Federal in the 550 Value Pack box IS NOT THE SAME AMMO as the Federal Auto Match. The Federal in the 550 Value Pack box is a 36 gr copper plated hollow point round that flies 1260 fps at the muzzle and 1000 fps at 100 yards- I suspect this is Federal's version of the CCI Mini-Mag. The Federal Auto Match is a 40 gr solid lead round that flies 1200 fps at the muzzle and 1080 fps at 50 yards and 990 fps at 100 yards.

I have a box of the Federal 550 Value ammo, but haven't shot the ammo yet out of any of my .22's, but I'll know how it cycles and groups soon enough. I've never stored any ammo indefinitely, so if it doesn't cycle well in my auto-loaders or group "somewhat" well out of any of my rifles, I'll shoot it in my .22 revolver or pistol for plinking.

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.
I can only comment on the 550 round Hi-Speed Federal ammo. That is because I bought over 50,000 rounds of it when the stuff was priced at Wal-Mart for $8.88 per 550 round carton some years back. I now wish I had bought 150,000 rounds! I still have over 20,000 rounds left. Thus far all of it has shot well in a variety of .22 rifles and pistols.
