I may be able yo answer this: Over 3 years ago my shooting buddy and I set out on an independent, private quest to find what was, in our opinion, the best .22 ammo for us. Unfunded by anyone we probably put close to 10,000 rounds of every brand and type of .22 ammo avsilable locally, (and some ordered). We put our ammos through every brand of rifle and type of action available and in pistols as well as rifles. We shot practically every week of the year for about 3 years in heat, cold, sun, rain, sleet and snow. We looked at performance, accuracy, ease/reliability of loading and somewhere in there price was probably at the back of our minds. Some didn't load well, repeatedly. Some wouId load in anything. Some did't fire occasionally. Some always fired. Some jammed. Some jammed often. Some never did. Some were lasers.Some were not so great. One brand shot consistantly high out of any barrel!View attachment 166628 I just picked up a Savage Mark 2 and topped it with one of my Sightron scopes, a 4-20x50 S-Tac. The set up works great. My buddy has a Tikka T1X with a Leupold LRP and we’re having a blast with these things. We’re shooting out to 200 yards and so far, our rifles are shooting the tightest groups with subsonic ammo.
I’m curious about different ammo for this thing and what others are using. What are you guys using as far as rifle/scope set ups and what do you think is the best ammo for the cost?
While these are our own private results and we are not knocking anyone's products, these were OUR results in our long-run tests. Your results may likely vary. In our opinion the best overall and most accurate ammo for us was Remington's .22 Golden Bullet in 40 grain round nose.
