Ok, so I got my new AA kit on Monday, and tonight the wife and I took it to the range. I picked up 100 CCI MiniMags, and I already had most of a bulk pack of Rem Golden Bullets. I intended to shoot 100 of each. So we start with the CCI ammo. On the very first shot, stovepipe. HOWEVER, the next 99 were flawless. I gotta say, I was pretty happy about that. Then on to the Rem GB. I only fired 20 rounds because that stuff was so dirty, I was afraid to keep going. Oh, and I did have one failure to feed in that batch of 20 (right near the end). I mean, that stuff was leaving a cloud of smoke, and it was all over the gun. Is that normal for that ammo? If so, I'll stick with CCI, cause IMO it's well worth the premium. As far as accuracy goes, I think I could tell a slight difference between the CCI and RemGB (CCI was better), but to tell you the truth, I'm not exactly a crack shot. Both were more accurate than I am, I have a long way to go. I will say that I could put the CCI's in a tighter group than I could my target .40 ammo, mostly because I'm still trying to learn to overcome recoil anticipation, which obviously isn't there with the .22LR kit. So far, so good! I can't wait to get out to the private ranges and do some much longer plinking sessions now that I can afford it.
