    I can not personally vouch for this story, but I came across it in a newsletter, "Page Nine", by Alan Korwin.

    Southwick Associates has completed an extensive survey of the top brands in the shooting sports. It is part of a 238-page report that received so much coverage you have never even heard of it. Are you using the top brands? Here they are:

    Top rifle brand: Remington (17.5% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun brand: Remington & Mossberg (virtual tie with 21.5% of all purchases)
    Top muzzleloader brand: Thompson Center (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun brand: Sturm Ruger (16.7% of all purchases)
    Top scope for firearms: Bushnell (17.1% of all purchases)
    Top rifle ammunition brand: Remington (25.3% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun ammunition brand: Winchester (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun ammunition brand: Winchester (22.0% of all purchases)
    Top blackpowder brand: Pyrodex (38.7% of all purchases)
    Top balls, bullets, or shot brand: Hornady (28.4% of all purchases)
    Top reloading bullet brand: Hornady (31.7% of all purchases)
    Top reloading primer brand: CCI (38.2% of all purchases)
    Top reloading powder brand: Hodgdon (37.8% of all purchases)

    I'm surprised remmington is the top rifle ammo since all you hear about it is bad.

    It's cheap, appeals to the masses, and is probably fine for the people that don't get as deep into the sport/hobby as we do.

    Whats wrong with Remmy ammo? Its what i mostly use, and ive never had any problems.. Federal is the ammo I hate.. I always get 2-3 rounds per box that are duds (per box of 50). The Federal .22's have a 5" drop at 100yds and tons of duds compared to the Remington .22's I buy... Im sure its not "match" quality, but I dont need to spend alot to plink.... Most of my rifles are mil-surps and I shoot the cheap mil-surp ammo outta them anyways....
