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.
