My 10/22s eat any and all ammo I put thru them. CCI is about my top shelf, but they will shoot the Remington stuff without issue as well. I have a Savage Model 64, on the other hand, that will only shoot high quality ammo. It will FTF/FTE so often that I don't even take it out anymore. It is my most accurate 22 and also my most undependable.

My Marlin 60 cycles just about any .22lr including CCI and Aguila sub sonic. The only ammo it would not cycle was Winchester Xpert. Dirty as he!! also. Now Winchester Wildcat has been a favorite since I was a kid for cheap ammo. When I finally found a source a few years ago, it did not dissapoint. Aguila makes some VG ammo, similar in many respects to CCI in the way it shoots.

My marlin 60 won't reliably feed hollow points. I don't know if it's just because they are the Remington bulk pack or just because it won't feed hollow points at all, I've yet to try a different brand. It also won't feed 22 shorts either. It runs great with Remington golden bullets and federal match designed for semi autos.

hawk,

My 10/22 would worked just fine with high velocity 22LRs, but didn't with target ammo.

I bought another action spring assembly and cut 2 rings of the spring and functioning was fine with the target rounds. Now I just swap out this action spring depending on the ammo.

AR22 Mossberg, now this one is picky. the best we have found is the AR Tactical made by CCI. Haven't had a single misfire with it.
good info, thanks.

I have had great results with Federal 550 round bulk pack ammo in both my Mossberg 715t and my GSG 1911 22lr.
my 22/45 runs through federal bulk like a dream...haven't had a chance to run it through my 10/22....i bought it less than a month before the "great 22 disappearance of '13"...

my 10/22 runs smooth on cci (only ammo i have found in the drought). i'll try this federal automatch in both my 22/45 and 10/22 and post results. i'll also run that american eagle crap through my 22/45 and see if it gives it problems.

the american eagle was actually very accurate through my 10/22, tearing ragged holes @ 50 yards w/o real effort. but WAY too many FTF's.

oh #$%$#! another thing i forgot to think about was the fact that i recently installed a KIDD cocking assembly in my 10/22....this could have some effect....but then the cci worked like a charm so....

well, i'll know more if that american eagle gives my 22/45 a hard time.
