And Shoot?????

I buy the Egale Federal and the Peters High Speed. Both are 40grain solid bullets and they are accurate and work well in all of my .22lr Pistols and Rifles. The Eagles are cheaper than the Peters, but the Peters are more accurate.

I have a variety of .22 LR fodder on my shelves.

The bulk of it is el cheapo ($9.00 a brick) CCI Brazer hi-speed 40 gr RN. This stuff shoots well in my Walther P22 and Beretta M21 Bobcat. I also use in the Colt .22 Conversion Unit mounted on one of my 70's Series GM frames. This ammo is dirty burning, but I clean my pistols after every range session, so it doesn't really matter.

For higher grader pistols such as the S&W Model 41, the Colt Woodsman Target, and the Browning Medalist, I use Remington /blue/green box standard velocity target grade 40 grain. This ammo is consistently accurate in my target pistols regardless of make. It costs twice what the Blazer does, but it is much more accurate.

I have small quantities of various .22 LR ammo such as CCI Stinger, CCI loaded Quikshok, and Winchester copper plated high velocity hollowpoints. I shoot these rounds in various revolvers I own. No feeding issues with revolvers....

I used to shoot lots of CCI MiniMag .22 LR years ago when I could buy them in 5000 round lots at very attractive prices at General Service Merchandise. But they went out of business and there is no place around here that I can find it at a price I'm willing to pay.

I have a few boxes of premium match grade ammo. RWS-50, Winchester Mark III Rifle Match, and Federal Ultra Match. I bought these to try in my Anschutz Model 54 Sporter. All give very good accuracy, but the cheaper Remington I mentioned above does just as well for substansially less money.

I made the mistake of buying a brick of Russian "Sniper" brand steelcased .22 LR some years ago. This shit would not eject from my S&W M422. So I tried it in my K-22. Very sticky extraction. Steel cased .22 may work okay in Russian made firearms, but it ain't worth a shit in my book. I ended up giving most of it away.

I use Rem Gold in the bulk packs. I'm just plinking in the yard with a suppressed Walther or 10/22. I've found Thunderbolts are the most accurate in my guns for cheap stuff.
I should be ordering a .22 conversion for my mac and then I'll have to see what runs good in that, opposed to accuracy and dirt factor.

CCI Stingers work beautifully in my Kimber .22 Conversion kit that is currently fitted on my Gov't Model.

I've bougth tens of thousands of rounds of those bulk packed Federal 550 round boxes at Wally World. I also bought a few thousand bulk packed Remingtons 550 round boxes as well but I much prefer the Federals due to their much better reliability.

Wallyworld did carry Velocitors. They are very accurate out of my 10-22.

Another good one to have is Aguila .22-SSS. 60 grain bullet on a .22 short case. It was designed by the mossad for assasinations. Fairly quiet from a pistol.

Like a lot of the others here, Wally World Bulk-Pack Federals for plinking/target. and CCI Stingers for small game hunting.

Also, I use either Winchester Supreme or CCI Maxi-Mag +IV for my .22 Mags, when I hunt 'yotes. I use Winchester FMJ's for squirrels when I hunt with one of my .22 mags. Tears 'em up a lot less! [Big Grin]
