    I used to buy CCI Blazers cause everybody raved about them and for the most part is very good 22 ammo. One time I was looking for 22's to take to the range the next day and the place I went didn't have it in stock so I picked up a big box of Remington Golden Bullets. These performed better than the CCI's with less FTE's in all my 22's. I was a little surprised but also thought you can't always believe what you read as I've read a lot of good but mostly bad things about this ammo. So for now this is my favorite 22 ammo since you can buy a big 500+ box for cheap.

    I always buy the remington golden jacket bullets. They shoot good and the hollow points have realy good expansion

    Depends on what I am doing with the .22. For SERIOUS target work, Nobel R-50, Wolf match or Lapua Master. Plinking with the grandkids- Federal Champion Target. Match ammo is not cheap.

    I don't have a favorite flavor. I'll buy what's on sale, pick up 1,2k at a time. I have 22's in pistol & rifle, auto, bolt, etc. If it doesn't work in one it will work in another. I have a thousand rounds of Eley Running Boar ammo. Hot stuff. From hyper-velocity to cb & bb. I looked in my ammo cans and even have some ammo in MontgomeryWards packaging.

    When I was regularly doing 100-150 yard work with my Marlin 60, I found Winchester Xpert to be the most accurate.

    Remington subsonic is my next choice. Sub moa to 100 yards, quiet through the can.


    Federal lightning, is it still around?

    I think CCI is by far the best 22lr ammo out there. I have several thousand rounds of various CCI brands of ammo. I also like Federal 510 bulk and shoot a fair amount of it as well.

    I shoot more Federal bulk than anything but CCI Mini Mags are the best.

    havent shot enough of a veriety to find out what's my favorite. currently i like Winchester wildcats. they are cheap and i dont have to go to walmart to get them. i love blazers but only one place sells them and they sell all bricks for $25. compare, the wildcats are about $20 after tax.

    I've had nothing but great results with the Federal bulk 550, something about spending 100 bucks for 2750 rounds that I really like...;)

    I have a bunch of the CCI's as well, can't go wrong with that either...

    I buy bulk federal, all my .22 shooting is random plinking. Nothing more than 50yards and they run fine in all my .22s, sometimes i buy winchester wildcats because bricks go on sale for $14 and i buy a couple just to keep my stock up.

    CCI Stinger (for hunting).

    Other than that (e.g. target practice, plinking, etc.), it doesn't matter too much. I often use the Remington Thunderbolt cuz you can get a brick of 1,000 for less than $10.
