    I've got a box of that stuff, same white box, from about 8 years ago never made it thru all 550rnds couldn't get it to feed any of my semi .22s and it would jam in the chamber of my bolt gun.

    true i heard of a lot of issues of the old stuff . maybe they fixed the production issues remember back then it was mass produce because of the 22lr shortage craze

    I don't buy HV anything anymore except Mini-mags for use in a Henry AR7. In most all of my 22LR rifles, anything supersonic is not as accurate as subsonic. Wolf/SK Match, CCI Standard, and Remington SS are about as inexpensive as I allow myself to buy. Above that it's Eley and others.

    That stuff was the worst .22 LR I've ever shot. It gummed up my Ruger Single Six and S&W Model 18. The one gun that digested it with minimal problems was a 1948-vintage Remington 550-1.

    i was shooting high velocity with my Remington 597 and phoenix 22 did good with it and its a better at penetration for self defense if in a pinch
    this is the brass one just like the lead xpert bullet with large hollow point

    The bullets are too bid in diameter & will not function in any of autoloaders. They work fine in the bolt guns though. I bought some of the Browning labeled Winchester a few years back & had the same problem. When .22lr ammo won't function in my nylon 66, something is wrong.
