Welcome marlin795!

My blued one appears to be metal.

Better plan on about a $50/week feeding budget for it.

I might suggest getting smaller boxes of different brands and grains to see which one your gun likes best. Each gun is different, so experiment. For me I've have good luck with CCI Minimags, Federal high velocity, Remington Viper, and the Winchester Super X. I have a box of older Remington Golden Bullets that work well, but I've heard of problems with them recently. I've also have a Ruger 10/22 that fires everything reliably except the Federals.

Where did you order those from? I looked around their website and didn't see anything but "Coming Soon" on these mags.

Which is one big reason why I decided to go with a model 60 instead. Tube fed. And then I picked up a couple of SpeeDLoaders. 240 easy loading rounds. Yeah, a little more hassle on the short run, but in the long run it is less hassle, unless you are going to get a couple of dozen or so extra mags. And what does that cost?

Well, yeah. Except when you are buying ammo that comes in bulk bricks. A 50 or 100 round box of ammo is nice to buy when you can, but in some cases they only come in bulk bricks. And for plinking ammo that is the norm. Just be prepared to burn up a few bricks of ammo that doesn't work well in your rifle, or perhaps look for some one to trade them to. After all, what doesn't work in your rifle just might work fine in someone else's.

That said, do yourself a favor and stay away from bulk Remington Golden Bullets...
