Bersa Thunder 22
#1
Accuracy is great.

Here is a quick rundown on what the gun eats and why:

*CCI Blazer - perfect
*CCI Velocitor - perfect
*CCI Stinger - perfect
*PMC Sidewinder - perfect
*Federal Bulk - 50% FTE no apparent reason (guessing underpowered).
*Remington Thunderbolt - 75% FTE due to low power, obvious blow-by on casings.
*Winchester XPert - 100% FTE due to the fact that it's shit ammo. Better chances of cycling subsonics.

So the gun feels great. Shoots great. And runs great with the right ammo. There were obvious inconsistent power issues with the Thunderbolts.

That's pretty much what I get except I had better luck with the Thunderbolts. QC on them is pretty hit or miss so I probably just lucked onto a few good boxes.

Correct me if I get this wrong, but the Bersa Thunder 22 is a blow back type action. Would a lighter recoil spring help with the FTEs?
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Theoretically it would, but one doesn't exist. You would have to bubba another spring. Not worth it since the Blazers shot 100%

Now if only Stingers and Velocitors didn't cost as much as 38 Special ammo. Angry

Some firearms recommend staying above a certain velocity in order for the action to function properly. My Chiappa MFour specifies nothing less than high velocity for it.

Looking at that list, it looks like it's all higher velocity rounds.

More updates on the ammo.

*Remington Golden - perfect
*Aguila Interceptor - perfect
*Aguila Supermaximum - 10% FTF: Feeding issues due to the longer case (not exhibited in the Stinger) and not very accurate in that gun.
*Winchester 38gr HP in 555 box - 50%
