My 10/22's both shoot CCI Stinger, Velocitor, and both Mini Mag ammo fine. They both shoot Fed. 510 and American Eagle (both 40gr lead) without issue. I even ran up on some Remington Viper that fed just fine in the 10/22's which was suprising given all you hear about them not feeding.

My Mossberg Plinkster eats everything I've fed it so far. My Remington 510 Targetmaster, 512 Sportmaster, and Henry Lever action will shoot any 22 long rifle, long, or short just fine.

Although I like the Federal and American Eagle I prefer CCI Mini Mags and since I have over 4000rds of it I guess that's a good thing.

In my 10/22 I can run thunderbolts all day long,500 plus, without a problem. But with the federal 525 bulk I can only go about 200 before I start having problems. I've noticed the federals leave a lot more gunk behind when cleaning.

Actually now that I think of it I found 150 rounds of Remington subsonic a few weeks ago but that is nothing special.

I had so many problems with Rem bulk that I quit buying it. CCI Mini Mags seem to run in anything. American Eagle 38 grain HP and 40 grain solids run fine in all my 22's, Aguila also runs great. I had some bulk Winchester that would not even chamber in my 10-22 but the 15-22 ate it with no problems. I have not tried Rem bulk in the 15-22 but the only thing it has jammed on is Velocitors. Not enough recoil spring for the hot load. I have not tried them in the 10-22. I have a lot of Federal bulk 525 packs and have had no issues using it with any of my guns.

Shooting with a Berretta Neos, I've had better luck with the federal bulk 550 than Remington. And never seem to have a misfire with cci. My marlin model 60 seems to have problems with all ammo anymore. Anyone think changing the firing pin and recoil spring will bring the marlin back to life?
