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.

338 MX...It's not your father's lever action!
I avoid Remington rimfire ammo like the plague. It tends to be the dirtiest and least reliable, but it is the cheapest.
Well I just got a marlin/glenfield model 60, so I think i'll use it up thru it and look for somthing better.
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.
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.

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....
A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

Yes I to have shot them but my Marlin 39M shoots better with CCI mini-mags and Federal value pack.
just spent a week comparing lower priced .22 ammo - 4 different rifles , remington 513 , 521, marlin 80 w/micro groove , + papoose model 70p - winchester superX , federal 714 , remington thunder bolts , + remington golden bullets - most accurate was federal 714 in all guns - both remingtons least accurate + thunderbolts with 4 ftf out of 20rds. in all four rifles -
Thanks for the information guys. Will save me time I don't have much of!
