    I always thought that too but my old Remington 550 loves them, it is what gives me the best accuracy with that rifle.

    I’ve always had good luck with mini-mag CCI though I have one Colt conversion which seems to prefer the old Winchester Wild Cats. If carry were the plan I would use Winchester Power points or CCI mini-mag if they proved reliable and accurate in the weapon.

    Cci pretty much seems the bench mark in rimfire. Good thing is at .04 per round you can try em all.

    CCI Mini Mags; the 40 gr seems to be pretty much fine for almost any .22...at least they have been for me.

    When it comes to .22's it depends on the particular gun! I have been blessed with my M&P 22 Compact which eats most any bulk ammo (including the dreaded Remington Thunder duds) like a fat kid eating Skittles! OTOH, I had a 10-22 that was very finicky and didn't like most bulk ammo. Just my .02 worth!

    Some of the worst ammo I've found is Winchester Super X. Some of the bullets are seated very loose and will wobble around causing jams. Other than the culls, they are very accurate. However, I won't be buying anymore. Remington Golden and CCI Mini Mags work well in my Ruger 10-22.

    One of my friends has an SR22 and it seems to shoot a lot of different kinds of ammo, except for the Aguila Super Extra that I have a lot of and was going to share with her. It absolutely and positively rejects that ammo, big time! My Ruger Mark IV Lite doesn't like it either! Fortunately my Browning 1911-22 and my S&W M&P .22 compact do not care what you feed them.

    Some brands are more accurate in one gun or another, and it is worth keeping track of those for various purposes. For plinking and shooting steel, about anything that feeds and ejects properly is OK with me. For competition shooting on paper targets, there is a difference, for sure!

    Same here, my SR22 is one of the more finicky guns I own. I've gone to the CCI Mini-Mag for pretty much all my .22LR plinking ammo.

    I have had good luck with the Remington Golden Bullets that come in the "Bucket O'Bullets - 36gr plated hollow point at rated at 1280fps.

    I know they are not the highest quality 22LR out there, but they have been very consistent and reliable for me in my SR22 as well as my Browning Buckmark and Ruger 10/22.

    So far my SR22 functions reliably with everything I've tried in it. Mostly cheap bulk stuff. As far as accuracy, I honestly haven't really wrung it out for that. It's certainly been accurate enough for the plinking, and new shooter training that I use it for. For precision work with a .22 LR pistol I always use my Ruger MK II. But, now you guys have got me curious about my SR22. I'm gonna take it soon and try a few different loads for accuracy.

    My SR22 has eaten every bulk ammo I have fed it including Fed Auto Match that I've heard complaints about until yesterday when I tried Winchester 555 bulk 36gr HP. Rarely would a full magazine go through without a failure to feed or a spent shell getting stuck in the chamber.

    Although the SR22 is the first 22 that I've had to experiment to find what ammo it doesn't like instead of trying to find what it does like. A refreshing change.

    Completely off topic!!!

    I am absolutely amused at your avatar. I had a belt buckle in the 70's and it was a "hoot"!
    It also carried the words" Polish Armed Guard" as well.

    My SR 22 like its big brother the 22/45 eats anything I throw in it, including the cheapest of the cheap.. You know, a million rounds in a 55 gallon drum for $4.99 kind of stuff...
    Ruger seemed to realize a .22 is used mostly for target work and plinking, and their designs actually work with the cheap bulk ammo most people end up buying. Its something some other gun builders should consider.bob
