Winchester M-22 ammo
 
Has anybody used this stuff yet? It seems reasonably priced at my LGS, but I've never met anyone who has tried it. I'd take the plunge myself it were available in 50rd boxes, but the only way I've seen it packaged was in 1000rd bulk packs. :eek:

I'm wondering about the accuracy & reliability, of course. Any range reports would be appreciated!

I've gone through a brick of this stuff. For "bulk" ammo, it shoots pretty good in my CZ 455 American at 50 yards- which is why I'll continue to buy the stuff. Five shot groups with my CZ are about the size of a dime at 50 yards with a few fliers here and there which make the group about an inch max. It shoots fair in my Marlin 60 which prefers Blazer and Winchester T22 Target. Doesn't shoot well in my custom 10/22, and OK in my modified Ruger 10/22- 16.5" barrel with 1:16 twist- which actually prefers Remington Subsonic. Will see how the M-22 shoots out of my other bolt guns.

Thanks for the info. Next time I'm getting low on .22 ammo, I'll give it a try.
