Good luck Sham I think the Rem. stuff is crap I got a box and probably 1 in every 15 ftf. Maybe I just got a bad batch.I've always had good success with Federal bulk for my 10/22. I haven't really had any issues with any ammo. I have yet to try Remington golden bullets "new and improved" bulk though. I'm going to give it a try. They are cheap, so hopefully they work out. Sometimes the firearm determines what ammo it likes and so you'll have to find the ones that work best with your rifle. Generally speaking though, my 10/22 eats just about any ammo I've tried, with almost zero failures.
I've had the same experience. The LCR 22 hates the ammo the SR 22 loves. Thought it was just me.Funny, CCI doesn't work so good in my LCR22 lol, way too tight to extract and the extractor skips over the rims creating a mess to empty the cylinder. Remingtons and Winchesters have been good.
This is exactly the problem I had with Remington bulk, including the new/improved, never with Winchester, and have the best results with Federal.I used to say I've never had a problem with Winchester bulk. But not after this weekend. We quit shooting them after a while. I didn't notice it at first but a bunch of the bullets were loose in the case. During feeding they would bend and not want to chamber. And it was a lot of them.
I couldn't edit my earlier post so quoting it here to update. James pictured some of the standard velocity CCI, I didn't try that variety till now and it works great. I was having problem with the mini mags.Funny, CCI doesn't work so good in my LCR22 lol, way too tight to extract and the extractor skips over the rims creating a mess to empty the cylinder. Remingtons and Winchesters have been good.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Just like you never bad-mouth your car while you're driving it, don't talk about ammo that your gun loves when it's not supposed to. The gun doesn't know, so don't jinx it. Love it, shoot it. I actually shoot a LOT of that stuff in my SR-22's.I keep seeing bad reviews of winchester bulk hollowpoints in the sr 22. Mine seems to handle them very well no ftf or fte nice groups no dirtier than anything else I've tried. Am I missing something.
