CCI Mini-Mags are the most consistent out of my Buckmark and 10/22 in terms of velocity. They are accurate and seem to be plentiful in my area. That said, I will shoot Federal and Remington bulk stuff if just out kickin up dust and knockin pebbles. MM's for target use.

This is truth!

I like CCIMMs, also.

I bought a couple bricks of this stuff on sale and didn't think it would be anything more that cheap plinking ammo. So I was surpised when I turned in this 50 yard group with my 10/22. My pinky is there for comparison. About 1" at 50 yards. Not bad for bargain basement ammo and a stock 10/22.

I'll second the Federal ammo, best shot to shot consistency that I've found yet. Won't buy the Rem crap any more. Some shots sound average, some sound full power and some sound like they are barely going to make it out the barrel. Talking about plinking ammo. I have also found the mini mag and stingers to be very good. We go thru a lot of 22's so I like to keep it cheap.

CZ 452, .22lr, Mueller 4x14 Mil Dot, Wolf MT. Simply amazing accuracy out here on our ranch.

Tkz... "We go thru a lot of 22's so I like to keep it cheap."
I think that kinda speaks for all of us!

With all the recommendations I have from this thread I now have more ammo to test out then I have time to do it... bummer.

My Savage rifle seems to handle anything I want to throw through it, but my Colt pistol is just a bit more particular... not much but a bit.

rv4driver... "I use Peters 500 round high velocity bulk packs (brown box) for training and general plinking. Great ammo and great pricing."
dougader..."Not bad for bargain basement ammo and a stock 10/22."

You guys are about the 5-6 person to recommend these .22's to me. I guess now I am going to have to go out and try these babies out as well.

If you folks keep the recommendations coming - I'm going to have to go out and buy a Semi-Auto Rifle with some huge clips just to fire off all this ammo...

I use CCI .22 Long CB caps for quiet pest control.

CCI Standard Velocity is a good inexpensive target round, especially if you get the stuff packaged in the less expensive boxes vs the expensive plastic.

Federal seems to be the better bulk pack. I understand Remington upgraded theirs, but I refuse to buy it after they marketed the absolute POS that was the "Golden Bullet" for so long.

Wolf Match Target is an excellent target round for the money.
Totally agree.

For me, the CCI Mini Mag is the standard by which I judge other ammos; if your gun doesn't shoot at least 'good' with mini mags, there's probably something wrong with the gun.

A rule of thumb I've be taught is that if the gun is a bolt action, single shot, or revolver the cheaper bulk ammo works fine.

If the gun is a semi auto rifle or pistol, it is better to stick to the premium ammo.

There are, of course, guns that are the exceptions to the rule.

Little Joe,

I must say I have to agree with you on your point. I know my Savage bolt action Rifle will pretty much fire anything I put into the chamber. This gives me the opportunity to test out all different brands/type of .22's out there.

Also, my Colt Pistol is a bit more particular about what it wants to chamber.

For plinking the Federal bulk packs are great. For hunting I lime the Winchester Power Point 40 grain hollow-points or CCI sub Sonics.
