Like a lot of people are going to say, it all depends on your gun. Mine prefers winchester while my girlfriends prefers Federals. Those are also the only two bends I've tried out though. I've head that a lot of .22s like the CCI mini mags hough.

Yea I shoot the cci Mini Mags and if it's a good day of shooting I can stack them at 50 yards. The down side to them are that they cost around $9 for 100. Not expensive for ammo but it's up there in cost compared to other .22s.

RWS Match or some form of Eley Match ammo used to be the big dogs in the Smallbore Silhouette game. A good lot of CCI Green Tag is hard to beat. A lot will come down to what your particular gun prefers.
Of course if your only killing cans, you may not need anything that exotic. I find CCI products to be consistently good value and quality.

The most accurate ammo for your 22 is going to be what you deside works best at the dollar cost you are willing to spend.

If you feel that cci at 9 dollars for 100 rounds is getting up there you will never see what your rifle might be able to do.

I find there is nothing under 7 bucks a box retail ofor50 that is worth wasting time on if accuracy is wanted.

If accruate is shooting junk around the range then try some federal 711b for about 4bucks a box or less.

Yea, I dont want exotic bullets I just want to know what the highest quality bullet is that you can buy at the store. I don't want to buy off the Internet.

My Browning 22 Semi Auto does just fine on most brick ammo at $16 for 500 rounds. The high cost stuff does not seem to make that much difference, other than lighten the very small load in my wallet. There's a whole bunch of varmint no longer with us as a result of those cheap rounds. So yeah, like the others are saying, buy a few and do your own test.

BTW, I did use some of the gilding metal (lead free) 22 LR. They were quite lite, but they fed and cycled ok, but maybe were a little less accurate, and at $10 for 50 when I bought them, they were expensive and will only be used where required. But that's the cost of the lead ban in central California.

I don't know where you shop, but that is real high. Gander Mountain sells them for $7.99 and runs a sale for $6.99/100.

My Remington 597 loves the bulk Federal ammo, while the CZ 452 seems to prefer CCI standard velocity or subs. Maybe not target quality, but more than accurate enough for hunting accuracy.
