I went through about half a brick of goldens my last trip to the range and to my surprize I had NOT ONE problem.
My Marlin 60 usually hates this stuff but I was mostly shooting my model 80 and it worked just fine.
I normally don't buy them but I took what they had at the time and for once I was pleasantly surprized.
I really like CCI and use it for grouping but I've found no better value in plincking ammo that Federal bulk packs,no matter what we shoot it works as long as the gun is working.

But I simply do not believe that any dog survived 2 at point blank.
WHISKY TANGO FOXTROT OVER?

What the hell is wrong with you. I think you need to go find another message board. We do not like douche baggery like that. 1. shooting a pistol under a house is so stupid to begin with and there was no way to get the dog out from under the house in a safe manner? How about call Animal Control or a rescue group. Na lets just bang away with a gun under the house yeah.

I have to ask. Did you say "Hey Bubba Hold my beer and watch this." before you went in on your ninja mission.

Rimfires are pretty finicky about the ammo they like to shoot.What one gun shoots,another will not. You can take several of the same brand/model gun and they will not like the same ammo.
I have over a dozen different rimfire guns-rifles & pistols and very few like to shoot the same ammo. I also have about 20 different types of ammo to shoot,because the guns are picky. Just find what your gun likes and buy alot of it to shoot!

My Ruger 10/22T loves Remington Golden Bullets along with several other types.But it doesn't like others.

10 shots/50 yards

I would have to say american eagle makes the best cheap rimfire ammo, since it is made by federal, it is excellent

It's not so much the bullet, as it is the short powder loads & squibs that tend to peeve off shooters.

Nothing quite like having to rod out a stuck bullet because the MFR didn't put any powder in...

The short powder loads tend to make the bullet fall a bit low and they screw up otherwise perfect groups. It only has to be missing ONE grain to screw up your day.

Remington Golden Bullsquish rounds have been known for decades as the worst stuff out there for those reasons...right along with ThunderDuds hitting next to worst. You don't earn lousy nicknames for your ammo unless you've been TRULY screwing consumers for awhile.

IMHO Remington was at the top of the heap-----30 years ago. They seem to have rested on their laurels and did little or nothing as far as upgrading lately. The Golden Sabre was a dismal failure until they figured how to bond the core. It is now better, IF you are sure you buy the "bonded core" ammo.

.22's are more picky than most calibers on the ammo they like. Find the ammo your's likes and stock up.

You mean those rounds that sort of go "pop" instead of "bang".

before you trip over your self being an a$$hat, understand that while you might call animal control in the CITY, when in the country, you solve your own problems. The dog was a pest, aggressive, and needed dispatched, therefore I dispatched it.

Id have easily allowed you to crawl in there and grab 100 pounds of pissed off gnashing teeth had you been there.


So continue ridin your high falluted East coast pony.

Dont condemn something you dont understand.

This is true, I called animal control about a crazy skunk under a cabin out here about a year ago...they told me I was on my own, so I took him out with a SHOTGUN under the cabin. Probably safer than using a pistol, but sometimes you stick with what brung you there.
