I haven't seen bulk .22 in a while.

Where do you have this choice?

Remington was horribly dirty in my Marlin 60. Switched to Federal and also have several bricks of Winchester that I have yet to try. Accuracy was 'minute of gopher' for any of the above without trying too hard.

Remington is dirty. I have about 1 in 10 failures with Federal. I have not tried any Winchester. So vote is for Remington, followed by Winchester.

I like Winchester Dynapoints, but that wasn't a choice.

I agree with the remington comment.
The only remington rimfire ammo I use is their Target 22. It shoots pretty well.

Federal bulk pack has been very good for me. Maybe 1 misfire out of 50, and accuracy is pretty good considering it's bulk ammo. Remington bulk is absolute junk, at least the stuff I've tried. Possibly the most inaccurate .22 ammo I've ever used.

I've actually had good expeirances with Remington. It's dirtier, but I haven't had any malfunctions with it, out of a bulk box I might get one that won't fire, maybe. It's given me better groups than CCI in one of my rifles.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that thinks Remington is nasty. I prefer Federal but I can't find any lately so I shoot Winchester or CCI.

We have Federal here but the boxs don't hold 555 rounds 400 instead. I have yet to see any difference in any of them.

I've decided bulk ammo is not worth the savings in my guns. I stick with CCI SV or Aguila SV for plinking ammo.

August 4, 2009, 03:42 PM
Wow... this is a loaded question... no pun intended, or was there?? ;)

Anyway, I didn't vote simply because I have several .22 rifles that have varying favorites... so I try to keep a good supply of all three on hand... funny thing is, my Remmy 597 actually likes the Remmy GB hp's better than anything else... but the Model Five Remmy like the Federal 510's best... The Browning T-Bolt does not like the Federal stuff, but loves the Winny and Remmy stuff... I have two very different Marlin model 25's... one loves the Federal 550 Bulk copper hp's, and one that prefers the Winchester 333 bulk pack stuff... ugh!!! So, I try to keep about 2500 rounds of each at my disposal... cheers...

I just put Remington on the list for fun. Personally I haven't had any good luck with their rimfire ammunition, not even the Target 22. They shoot worse than the cheap Federal 555.

Same for me. I also have a glock .22 conversion kit for my subcompact, and federal wont eject at all in it. Remington works everytime for me. Others may not like it, but if it goes bang for me than its what I am gonna buy.

a couple of my .22's don't do well at all with the Remmy GB and as said before it is dirty.
Federal I've had more ftfire's than Win but otherwise about the same. maybe just a slight edge in tight groups w/Win.
back when (ages ago it seems now) Rem put out the 'Yellow Jacket' in the bulk box I had good luck w/it but IIRC some feed problems with some magazines in semi-autos. sort of wish they still had those available.

My way of thinking when it comes to bulk 22 lr's the best one is the one that is cheapest.

I'd buy the cheapest.

Bulk is bulk. Plink for the cheapest you can get away with.

If I needed to hunt, or was at a competition, I wouldn't use any in the poll.

I have much the same experiance, the remington shoots amazingly well in one of my rifles. I don't buy it anymore, because I now have a bunch of semi automatic .22s, and it doesn't feed well in them.

August 4, 2009, 06:18 PM
The best one is the one that shoots best from your rifle. All around best ammo I've found that is in the lower price range is Eley Sport. Shoots well in almost all my rf's but you do get a strange flier now and then so it is not what you'd want a competition shoot. For general use it is decent stuff.

I've had alot of FTF's from Winchester Xperts. They vary between tight groups and shotgun pattern. Federal seems to be the most consistent across the board.

I shoot more Remington, but I think Federal bulk packs shoot a little better. Have not tried the Winchester even though I have a couple in my stash. But honestly, I shoot very little bulk packaged 22 ammo. I prefer the 50-ct boxes.

WNTFW
August 4, 2009, 07:02 PM
What is the criteria for best? Accuracy, reliability or cleanliness ???

I have had problems and good results with all of them. FTFeed, FTE and FTFire.

I just get what I can and deal with it as best I can. I have fun no matter what.

I really do believe the quality is not what it used to be or could be.

I don't shoot the better .22 ammo, but maybe I should try some.

I currently have partial boxes of remington's "golden bullets" and federal 22 ammo. The remington is super super dirty. I shot a bunch through my neos and I had powder smudges all over my face. Every few rounds, I got hot burnt powder sprayed on my face. You can even pull the bullets out of the case with your fingers. The federal, on the other hand, functioned flawlessly and was not dirty at all. All bullets were firmly crimped,too.

If you had to chose from the bulk .22 listed above, which would you pick.

I have had many misfires with Remington and Winchester.... Hands down Federal has to be the best bulk ammo with the least misfires. Accuracy is about the same for all three.

Years ago I would have told you I never had a misfire with Wichester Dynapoint and it was as accurate as any of the premium brands. Not so any longer. Dynapoint is trying to live on a name now. If you want extreme accuracy there are a number of premium brands that are consistent. I like Lapua the best.

I believe Federal makes the most consistant bulk packaged 22 LR ammo. As I said before, I rarely buy bulk packs unless there is nothing else available. Generally, bulk packs have been the more difficult to find of late.

Bricks of CCI are the one for me but Federal bulk is A-OK. I am shocked that Remington will put their name on that green box!

Bill B.
August 4, 2009, 10:12 PM
Federal Automatch, Winchester Dynapoints & Experts & CCI Blazer are all better in my guns than the 3 you list. Experts are the same as the Win. 555 without the copper wash but may be made in a different plant. Anyway my .22's prefer the no copper wash.

Jerry D
August 4, 2009, 10:30 PM
It's hard to answer what bulk is best when you don't list nearly all the types of bulk.

I like first the Federal Champion bulk in the blue box of 525. I then like Winchester Dynapoints and the Winchester Box of 333. I'll then take the Winchester Xpert box of 550.

I shoot with iron sights and for me with bulk - I want it to go bang - I've had great luck with Federal 525 boxes of Champion bulk - not one fail to fire in my cz 452 and I've shot a few thousand - I've actually had a lot more misfires in a brick of fed 510 champion that I bought.

Federal is always my first choice of ammo, then Winchester, then Remington, if I go to Canadian Tire, they have Federal, if I go to Walmart they have Winchester - really I don't care as long as it makes some noise!

Savage Shooter
August 4, 2009, 10:41 PM
For me and my model 60 it's remington golden bullets hands down. I here everyone complaining about them but I have tried federal and hate it. I find it is dirty, fails to feed, inaccurate, and misfires. I shoot the remington it is extremly accurate in my marlin 60 for some reason it's what she likes so that's what I feed her.

I voted Federal. I used to shoot nothing but Remington. Got two bricks last year and had a great number of rounds that wouldn't fire in my P22 (~1 in 20). It strikes a little light, but even my Mk2 could only make about half of the failures work. I tried another brick this year when I couldn't find anything else and they worked fine.

Runningman
August 5, 2009, 01:13 AM
None on that list. My own experience is most bulk 22 ammo is it will go bang most of the time but accuracy and lot to lot consistency leaves much to be desired.

Pine Cone
August 5, 2009, 01:49 AM
I voted for the Federal because you didn't have CCI Blazer on the list. Federal bulk is the best of the 3 you listed, but it's not the best...

WTBguns10kOK
August 5, 2009, 01:56 AM
CCI Blazer. Cleaner than the others, and consistently fires in two Walther P22's I have access to. They are very picky, obviously. Also fires in any other .22 gun and I can't hardly remember a bad round.

Worst 22 ammo I ever bought was a brick of Winchester Wildcats.. numerous dud rounds, fte's. I know it was a long time ago but it makes me reluctant to buy them ever again. Esp with the pricing on .22 ammo at the moment.

I've never had many problems with Federal 'Lightning' bulk packs.

I've only bought Remington in small boxes (Yellow Jackets, Vipers) never in bulk.

MarineOne
August 5, 2009, 03:15 AM
Worst ammo I've used was just a couple weeks ago. Aguila (red box) from Cabela's and I have numerous complaints with this specific ammo.

There was enough wax on each round to make a candle, the brass was so thin that using a speed loader crushed the case on almost 1/10 of the 500 round box (used 3 different speed loaders with Butler Creek Hot Lips and Steel Lips mags, the 10 round rotary from my 10/22, and some other brand mag a friend of mine let me use, and the powder was even dirtier than the wax on the projectiles.

I've had good luck with Winchester and Federal, but the Winchester had better accuracy.

August 5, 2009, 01:20 PM
I usually shoot either CCI Blazer or Federal Champion 510, both in 50 round boxes. As far as I can tell, it's the same ammo with different headstamps and packaging. It's exactly the same bullet contour and design, and it shoots into one group. More reliable and consistent that most bulk pack ammo that I've tried. I shot several cases of Blazer over the last few years, with only a few dud rounds per case.

The one bulk pack that I like is Federal Auto Match, which comes in a 325 round box, but it's a penny or so more expensive per round.

You know, you would think CCI would be hands down the best, since they provide most of the explosives/semi liquid fuels/booster rocket fuel for the military,space shuttle, etc. But their bulk ammo is just not that good. eley sport would be proly the best, if you can find it. it is not made in a bulk pac, but the ind. boxes are under 4 bucks per box...

I haven't shot the Winchester. The Federal is generally good stuff - always goes bang, not overly accurate but good enough for some casual shooting. The Remmy stuff is inaccurate, dirty, and has too many FTFire.

DennyF
August 6, 2009, 12:27 PM
Wally usually has Federal 550 packs for roughly $14, 'cept when they've run out of it. They always get more. It shoots about the same for me in most rifles, as the Fed. 525 pack ammo, which run about $19 in these parts.

Win. Dynapoints and Wildcats were long my favorites, now cost about the same, which is too much. Dynapoints were my "benchmark" round for many years, as I've never had a rifle that didn't shoot them fairly well. I am not going to pay $30 for a box of Dynapoints, but still have thousands of 'em purchased for far less. It's why I shoot the $14 stuff from Walmart, instead.

Haven't fired a round of Rem. 22 ammo in years, ain't fixin' to start again anytime soon, either. Have several full tins and bricks of the stuff and consider them to be "collector's items", not real ammo.

;)

Wolf MT is my favorite for target ammo, but when I get a 22 Jones and head for the range, it's mostly Fed. bulk stuff that makes most of the noise. CCI Mini Mags have long been my choice for small game and varmints, but now I tend to use Velocitors instead.

August 6, 2009, 12:30 PM
I have found the Remington to be inaccurate, dirty and has frequent "duds". I much prefer the Federal buld pack, it often shoots 5 shot groups under an inch at 50 yards with my CZ 453. The Federal also seems to be more reliable, in my experience. I have not shot Winchester much, but I found and bought four Winchester 555 bulk packs at Walmart a few weeks ago, so I'll be shooting it eventually, so we'll see. The Federal works much better in my autoloading .22 pistols as well. I have a Buckmark and a P22. Definitely prefer the Federal!

August 7, 2009, 01:36 AM
i'm starting to see the bulk .22 come back. i first tried winchester 40 gr dynapoint gt 500 pk and seem relative good, no duds. the remington 550 36 gr golden bullet pk i have like under 10 duds a pack and some just seem to just fall out of the barrel rather than shoot almost like there wasn't enough powder. the casing also seems relatively thin cause they would jam under constant fire and not extract. i found some mini mags and hoping to try these out. i've shot stingers in the past and they are a charm. wish they came in bulk.

MetalMan52
August 7, 2009, 09:07 AM
I could only vote for one, so it was the Federal. I've had really good luck with it in all of my .22's. I would also buy the Winchester but it has been really scarce in my neck of the woods for some time.
Rem is on my do not buy list period. I have had so many failures to fire with it in so many of my .22's that I won't waste any more money on this crap anymore.

All these "misfires" ... I think I've had 10 .22lr misfires in my life. (and that has been a while ... I bought a Remington Nylon 77 new from the store in 1978 and still shoot it twice a month or so). No missfires worth mentioning with my Winchester 72A, Mossberg M44US, or little H&R revolver either.

Let's see. It could be from the fact that I've seen it called that time after time on this board and others. It could be because it's the only CCI I ever see in stores in bricks (or in "bulk" as it were). You can buy 500 rounds at a time. Why is that not bulk? It's called target ammo just like a lot of other ammo we all call bulk.

Perhaps you might look at the CCI website here:
http://www.cci-ammunition.com/ballistics/detail.aspx?loadNo=0032

CCI SV comes in 100 count plastic box. You can buy 500 rounds at a time. A brick of 500 rounds of .22 ammo does not equal being bulk ammo. Bulk .22 ammo is packed loose in box. Some of the boxes have as little as 325 rounds and some have as many as 555 rounds. Generally it's the ammo we complain about because it's dirty, we have duds, it's not accurate, etc. & we get real excited when we actually find some that shoots well in our rimfires at the cheap price it sells for! CCI SV has been one of the better .22 ammo's available for years. At the price of $7.00 per 100 it sure doesn't deserve the tag of being bulk .22!

DennyF
August 8, 2009, 11:06 PM
CCI SV also comes in 500 round bricks, or once did, because our local Dick's had a pretty good stock of it the last time I was there.

At one point in April or May, it was about the only 22 ammo they had in stock in any quantity whenever I stopped by, except for bulk Rem stuff. The Dynapoints came and went, so did the other CCI ammo, but those bricks of SV always seemed to be there. It was still there as of a few weeks ago.

for the $12 or so i paid for it, per box, i guess i can't complain, though i would be irritated at 1/1000 dud rate in centerfire ammo

My 10/22 will run all of them...I personally prefer CCI Stingers for pest control

Walter O, neither of those are bulk ammo. Also, one is HV and the other is SV. The Blazers are promotional ammo however. Bulk packs are packaged in "milk cartons" and the ammo is loose. I suppose I would call Remington golden bullets packaged in the tins bulk since they are loose. You frequently see them around Christmas.

Yes, loose shells is what determines bulk pack.

I've seen them packed in several different quantities.

I know one thing....you will be sorry if you don't wear eye protection while shooting Remmy GBs! Otherwise, your eyeballs will be full of grit at the end of the day.

It's come back from the dead!

Remington rimfire ammo is junk. My Savages seem to like Federal Match Subsonic best. Unfortunately that's really expensive, but they work well with the Federal bulk packs. Not had any experience with the Winchesters.

It's come back from the dead!At least this one was started this year. :rolleyes:

I voted for the Win. 555, because they have been a little more accurate than the Fed. 550 at the same price; though I have only fired one package of 555s and many...many Feds so it may be too early to tell for sure. Both have few duds, are clean, and fairly accurate; the Rem. GBs are alright in my experience, but are more costly and just don't perform as well (not as clean, accurate, or reliable for me).

I have run all 3 in my 10/22 and i get the fewest malfunctions with the Winchester.
Federal is ok in my non simi autos
Remington gold is the dirtiest ammo iv ever seen, after loading just a 10 round mag that goldish powder is all over my hands, what junk.

I've tried all three of the listed, and the Federal is the only one that didn't give me any trouble in any of my .22s. I will never buy a bulk pack of Remington, or Winchester, I still have half empty boxes of both. I can't use the rest because I can't get them to cycle consistently in any of my .22s they are total crap.

The Fedeal bulk ammo is pretty good, but if you're doing target shooting with a bolt action .22 CCI Standard Velocity is the way to go. I consitantly shoot sub inch 100 yard groups from my Remington 513T with it :)

Mav....just what is wrong with the 'Thunderbolt'....?

Other than the fact I have seen the insides of ships engines that burn bunker sea heavy oil cleaner than a 22 after 500 rounds of the stuff.

Just because the inside of your gun looks like a road crew just put down tar....I don't see the problem.

A real man can hit what he's aiming at while using Thunderbutt ammo....and his gun will digest at least 50 rounds of it before seizing up.

hehehehe.......!

Federal 510 in the 50 round boxes usually ends up being about 10% more expensive than bulk pack ammo, and is far more accurate and reliable. The only bulk pack that I shoot these days is Federal Automatch.

I was always partial to winchester target match 22 in the 10x 50rd bricks, for target shooting and plinking in general. But after, all of a sudden running into some issues with the ammo, misfiring and erradic functioning including blown out cases. I wanted to try something else. I gave the Federal bulk stuff a try, just for the hell of it, and to my suprise this cheap ammo shot more consisantly than the winchester match stuff. Sure there are some guys at the range that shoot RWS/Lapua ammo and nothing else, but for the money they pay for the ammo, could be shooting something more than a 22.

I wouldn't know. My Winchester Mod 290 only likes CCI Mini-Mags. Everything else jams it.

I voted for Federal, but I think CCI Blazer is better than any of the three listed. Blazer is the only bulk ammo that my Buckmark will fire reliably.

I missed that the first time. LOLI don't know if I coined the term (probably not), but I have been using it for a looong time. I think it was named appropriately, lightning never strikes in the same place twice. :D

I bought a Bersa firestorm .22 earlier this year and took it out to a friend house to shoot. Took a new box of Federal bulk with me and could not go through a whole mag without FTE, just not enough oomph to cycle. He had some Remington thunderbolt shooting in his Mk II so i tried that , 100 % good to go. Since then I have shot 1000+ rounds of Remington GB without a hiccup, includinr range sessions in excess of 300 rounds without cleaning. And I still hit what I was aiming at, including the broad side of a barn. Haven't tried any Federal since the break- in even though I have some in storage. Ya'll send me all that dirty, inaccurate Remmington and I'll make sure it doesn't ruin any more of your range time.
