Unfortunately I don't know that my personal skill level will tell me which ammo is the most accurate.

Fortunately for me, the box of GB I bought a week ago at Sportsmans Warehouse (they limited to one box) ran great today. I have 0 issues after about 350-400 rounds through my Savage MkII and S&W 22A.

I had a pretty good range day today.

I've shot these for 20 years because they have been cheap and always available ( except now) probably over 100,000 rds. Until lately they have shot great out of my 10/22's but lately quality has been down. They're still better than thunder bolts but that's not saying much. I think this maybe do to the high production rates they a sustaining because of shortages.

Golden Bullets are my all time favorite bulk bullets. That's about all I buy. They good, accurate ammo. You may have one dud in 525 pieces. That's with any 22 bullets though. Great ammo.

GB's vs Blazers

Prof Young I tried Blazers as well; I had more FTE problems with them and at 100 yards, they were less accurate than the GBs. I can well appreciate with the poor FTF experiences that you had, that you'd not want to use them. So why did I have less FTF problems than you did...I must had a better lot of them. The FTF problem was due to the inconsistency of primiing compound which, as i understand it, has been solved.

I have had no problem with Thunderbolts other than they are dirty.

Thunderheads are very dirty. I'll never buy any more of them.

I believe all of Remington's 22 rimfire ammo is manufactured in the Lonoke Arkansas plant.

The Thunderbolts are a little dirty as are golden bullets.

from my exp all 22 ammo from high to low price is dirty, 22lr is just a dirty round, clean the guns when get home or if like me and the kids do some weekends we will go through 2 bricks a outing if the kids are having fun, when the gun starts to ftf or fte i clean the gun at our range while they shoot a different gun. for the fun it gives them dont mind cleaning a gun at the range so they can keep shooting

Sounds like most like the Golden Bullets now.

What a difference a tear makes...
