Good 22LR Ammo?
#1
Who makes good quality 22lr ammo? Which ones should I stay away from? Its been years since I have owned a 22lr. I have a SS 10/22 on order and would like to use decent ammo.

There was a thread here not too long ago about the best bulk ammo for .22LR. As far as my favorite .22LR ammo to run through my 10/22, CCI Mini-Mags. Well worth the price difference to me.

[Image: oldman_01.gif] I agree with GreenBlood10 - the best .22LR ammo is CCI Mini-Mags.

We have 2 10/22's in the house. Both run anything they are fed. Only problem ever wasn't ammo related. My son's rifle would fte about once in 30 rounds. Simple mod of bending the ejector took care of the problem.

Buy the cheapest ammo you can find for general blasting. Try a sample of everything you can find to determine the most accurate.
Just keep in mind that in general the cheaper the ammo the more dirt it leaves behind.

.22 ammo has come quite a long way.......

I also highly recommend CCI MiniMags. I try to avoid the HP stuff as I have found it has slight difficulty clambering in all my pistols/rifles.

I also recommend CCI Standard Velocity rounds. Very reliable and has worked for me with great accuracy results.

CCI Blazer is another reliable round. (Seeing a trend here with manufacturers?)

In my experience.......Remington bulk is terrible. Feed issues due to inconsistent bullet shape (and placement in the case) lots of FTF and often, even a 2nd strike still fails to fire.

Good luck and enjoy!

My wife and I like Federal a lot.
Especially Federal's American Eagle (black and red box).
Inexpensive and good quality.
Locally a brick of 500 for $19.

We do not like Blazer.
Shoots fine but Blazer seems dirty and really dirties up all our firearms.

We don't like Winchester Wildcats either.
We have pulled some out of the box with the bullet in crooked.
Looked great for shooting around trees (or mountains)!

We do like CCI but they are a little more expensive.
Their "CB Longs" are pretty quiet with great range - great bunny in the garden blasters.
CCI now makes "Quiet 22" which are very quiet to shoot but still have decent range.
RWB1500 turned me onto these!

God bless!!

Every time I go to walmart, I clean out their stock of CCI Mini Mags.

I've never had a problem with the bulk packs of federal from Walmart.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

I do the same exact thing. I could probably stop soon though. I should be set for a good couple decades.

Ive always had good luck with federal, CCL, and Eley..

As far as winchester goes, Ive had terrible luck with it from an accuracy standpoint.
