Mil Surp Remington .22LR?

Anybody have any experience with this stuff? I usually avoid Remington ammo.

Since CMP designated it so

I don't know for sure but I suspect the military used it for small bore rifle competition until someone looked at the 5.56 round and decided that was redundant.

So where did you see this ammo? I just checked the CMP website, and all I saw was Aguila Centurion 22 rimfire.

I have purchased 15,000 rounds of it,,,

It was purchased from an estate for $60.00/case.
I bought three 5,000 round sealed cases of it last year,,,
It's lead with a round nose and comes in a generic white box.

So far I've shot up several 500 round bricks,,,
I'm somewhere in the 6th brick if I recall correctly.

It goes bang every time I pull the trigger,,,
I haven't had one dud round yet.

I don't use it in my semi-auto handguns.

I have used it with my semi-auto Mossberg Plinkster,,,
It cycles the action on that rifle well enough.

Mainly I use it with my revolvers and single-shot rifles.

The only complaint I have is that my revolvers lead up rather quickly,,,
After a couple hundred rounds I push a lot of lead out of the barrel.

I'll take a pic of it tonight,,,
Just to see if we are talking about the same stuff.

Stay away from that Aguila crap ammo. You will be lucky to get 100 rounds fired without a cleaning. Dirtiest ammo I ever bought.

Regular Remington .22LR is hit and miss as it is. I stay away from it - I get duds all the time. Usually there's a dud in each mag I load if I use Remington.

I don't know about the mil-surp Remington though... I never knew that it existed.

In any case, cheap as it may be, I'll stick with my cheap standby - Federal bulk packs from Wal-Mart.

I forgot to take a picture,,,

But the Remington, stock number 4S22RSURP-5000, is exactly what I have.

For the price I paid (1.2 cents a round) it's good enough ammo.
