.22 ammo

I have used .22 ammo for longer than most people have been alive and quite probably more of it. 22 ammunition is an enigma. It is all dirty and works well or poorly entirely dependent on the weapon. In this case we have a lightly plated round which might reduce lead in the bore but overall fouling remains about the same. It is consistent enough for most purposes if your "gun" likes it. I have some "guns" that accept this stuff as OK when I'm not trying to hit a gopher in the head at 100 yds. I enjoy the big bucket of loose rounds because I can access multiple handfuls without spilling too many. I gave it 5 stars. As 22 ammunition, it would have to be really lousy to get anything less.

I rate this ammo five stars based on accuracy in my firearms versus price. Very little difference between this ammo and that costing twice as much or more. It functions and groups well in my pistols and rifles, semi-auto and bolt action. I will buy it again.

There's no difference at all compared to CCI Green Tag in my old Remington 513-T. They both consistently shoot around 1 MOA...and that's with a grunter 4.5 pound trigger. Group size would definitely shrink if I could get the trigger safely down to around 16 to 20oz like on the Anschutz rifles but this is next to impossible on those old Remington triggers. Nevertheless, 1 MOA is fine by me, and you can't beat the price of the Standard Velocity. I've tried many other brands (all the Eley and the Fed 900 series) and they really didn't shoot any better in my rifle. Then again, that's my rifle and might not be the case in yours. Either way, there's no reason for me to pay the extra price for the "better" ammo because CCI Standard Velocity does the job as well or better all at a fraction of the price.
