    I'm not sure what the absolute best round is but Federal 510 and AM22 work well in my SS Camper. Both are available at WalMart (when they're in stock, tough these days) for cheap.

    hard to say which ammo is best for your gun. i got two beretta 21a and they like different 22lr ammo. i would buy several different brands and run a test to see which brand shoots the best.

    Does the firing pin pierce the casing and cause blowback? Seems weird that that would happen on a rimfire cartridge.

    I own 2 Buckmarks. Both function perfectly with CCI Mini-Mag standard velocity ammo.

    i think i used "blowback" wrong what i ment to say is when the gun fires it wont eject the shells with some ammo! like the rounds are not strong enough to blow back the slide sometimes. i used the bulk 550 federal and they have worked the best but i was wondering if there was a better choice?

    Use standard velocity or faster ammo. Problem with cheap bulk ammo is that some rounds maybe shy on the powder amount causing your buckmark not to function as it should. Remington golden in the 525 bulk pack works well in my buckmark for cheap stuff. The rest of the ammo I use isnt so cheap..RWS, Lapua in the can(no longer offered, too bad too this was great stuff) and SK.

    IMHO CCI Mini-Mags are the most consistent but a little more expensive. You get what you pay for and cheap ammo is just getting made cheaper.
