My experiences with Remington rim fires as well.

Thanks for the info guys. I bought some federal and I'm gonna try it out. It's hard to even find 22 ammo these days so I've just been shooting what I could find. I'll avoid the Remington from now on though.

Dont use remington 550. It's not reliable and is very poor quality. The Federal bulk .22LR pack(dont remember round #) is much better and is the same price most of the time

My wife has one and it will fire just about anything. It would have an occasional issue with Winchester white box, but I typically only shoot CCI 40grain as it never malfunctions with them. I've also shot Thunderbolts, M22 Winchester, Federal, Blazer, just about every brand out there. I just stick with 40 grain whatever brand I get

Has anyone tried the New Improved Remington Golden Bullets yet?

I managed to stock up 4k of Federal and Winchester 36g HV HPs And have been rationing them......I have seen the new Remington ammo, but the price is still too high....Another couple of months till things look better.

Prices are only jacked up where the masses shop. I bought 500 rounds of CCI Standard Velocity last week for $42.

Not sure where you live, but here in VA $42 for CCI-SV is about $15 too much.

Prices are getting ridiculous. I saw one place selling 50 rounds for $10

I broke my 15-22 in with Win 555 Ammo, and haven't had any problems. I used to shoot Remmy Ammo years ago... and it jammed in everything I put it in. I now use, Win, Fed & CCI.

Take the Remmy Ammo you have left over, and see if some Single-Shot Rifle or Revolver Shooters, may trade you something Shootable for it. Worth a try!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

That's only .08 cent a round. I wasn't buying in bulk, as they still have amount restrictions in place. Before all this crap I was buying 50 round boxes in 10 box bricks for .06 cent prior to all this. I had been also buying, from walmart when they had it, 50 round boxzes in 10 pack case for .04 cent each.....but those were like Remington stingers and Winchester black box. It's stayed about .06 forever, and the .08 most are happy to pay being it's hard to find the .22 than it is the .223
