    22 Ammo

    Has anybody ever used the Remington 525rd. golden bullet HP value pack before? I bought some at the Big R store and hav'nt got to use them.

    I have used them. They shoot better than the Federal bulk pack out of my 39A, but nowhere near as good as CCI Mini-mags.

    I avoid Remington rimfire ammo like the plague. It tends to be the dirtiest and least reliable, but it is the cheapest.

    Re: 22 Ammo

    Although I shoot the Remington Yellow Jackets I avoid the bulk packs. I've had much better luck with Federal bulk packs. There was a post recently about Dissapointing 22 Ammo. Some folks like the Remington, some the Federal.
    An old saying is "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." I believe in a head for an eye and a hand for a tooth. Keeps folks away from my eyes and teeth.

    Re: 22 Ammo

    I maxed the BDT using Rem Goldens in my Rem 581.. it really likes them..

    I prefer Winchester 36 gr Jhp's for my CZ452 but it shoots most ammo well..

    I use nothing but CCI in my 22 mag..

    I use Fed Bulk pack also cause it's jacketed.. I prefer jacketed over all lead.

    Re: 22 Ammo

    I have a hatred for both federal & remington bulk packs...they're both junk.

    but they are perfect for lever-actions & bolt actions...just don't even bother trying to use 'em out of a semi-auto rifle...sooner or later they WILL bite you in the butt...then you're shoving lead out of the barrel with yer cleaning rod....
