The 10/22 has been tricked out but is all Ruger parts. I shot several 1/2 inch groups that day but that was not the norm. I bought another Rem Bulk Pack a week ago and am anxious to see if I get the same performance. I also bought a 50 round box of Rem. Eley Match ($9.95) to see how they compared. One observation is that there is not a lot to choose from these days on the dealer shelf.

This is clearly not written to say anyone else was wrong on their ammo evaluation but to again highlight that each firearm is an individual and you have to see what they like. My 10/22 just happens to be a cheap date!

The only issue I had with the Remmy bulk is that 1 of every 5 or 6 would not fire. Never had the same issue with any other. I am partial to CCI Mini-Mags now.

If you live in Grand Junction Colorado, you buy whatever you are lucky enough to find. I didn't see a box of 22lr for about 6 months after the election. Its a little better now. But its still a beggers can't be choosers situation.

Wow, that sucks. Here in western PA, 22lr is all around--the trick is finding the best ammo at the best price. The gun shop I frequent has the 550 Federal packs for around $18, which is a few bucks more than wal-mart, but at least I can support the local merchant (who is making money hand over fist on his gun sales, but what the hell...).

It kind of funny here. It seems like everybody and his daughter in this town is a shooter. I used to go to the range and pick up brass by the bucket full. I actually bought a 45 auto because I had so much brass and I was already loading 45 colt. But now...If I lose one of my own I end up going home short a case. Sportsmans warehouse is actually selling factory reloaded ammo! Because thats about all you can find here. I know one gun shop that has a good supply of ammo. But I'm not going to say where or that will dry up too!
