I have a S&W M&P 15 22lr rifle. I would like to know if anyone has used this brand of 22lr. I don't know about the quality of it since it is made in Mexico. I have used Freedom ammo for my 9 and 40, with no problems

"Long rifle hyper velocity Super CI 22 long rifle cartridges. Rimfire cartridges made by CI of Mexico. Non-corosive priming, smokeless powder and anti-leading lubrication. Copper plated bullets"

Thanks
Robert

They have two plants one in odaho and one somewhere else. But I use nothing but there ammo 22, 9, and 40 and I have never had a problem. 22 will always have problems just cause it's 22. But I have had the same problems with all companies. But you will like there ammo.

CI ammo is not a Freedom Muntions brand . There only an outlet for them like many others . Mexican company Cascade International - CI and is a joint venture with Cascade Cartridge International - CCI that goes back to 1959 in mexico .

My owner manual says not to use CCI ammo, so if this is a joint venture, should I consider the CI ammo are made to the same standards as CCI?

15-22 will eat any ammo you feed it short of "quiet" and powderless stuff. Any SV or HV should cycle fine. I don't use hyper velocity cause it beats up semi autos IMO and is less accurate.
