My Buckmark will shoot anything including the GB crap. My Walther PPKS will only shoot Rem Yellow Jackets. Wally world in Woodhaven had about 15 of the 550 packs yesterday. Federal 36 gr, plated HP for $15.47. Was going to scan my drivers license till I said they were for a rifle. Stood there with his hand out and said, "pistol or rifle?". I said rifle and the hand dropped. I bought 2 and left the rest.

CCI mini mags, hollow point or round nose for the win. You will pay a little more than you would for the cheap bulk stuff, but they are much more accurate and reliable.

x10 on CCI for quality.



But the shooting I do with my GSG-5 is pretty much rapid fire plinking. Dont really care about it being a tack driver. I might have one or two malfunctions per 100 with federal, and maybe two or three per hundred with remington GB's. I can plow through 100's of rounds in a session with that thing. 22 round mags dont last too long with it. Hence why I like the cheap value packs.

Yeah, I used to burn through .22lr like it was nothing with my old remington 597 plinker. Now I'm down to 1 pistol (custom ruger MK-III hunter) and one rifle (custom built 10/22), both are setup for accuracy so I don't use near as much ammo. I did stock up last year on the mini-mags though, got 4000 rounds from natchezz and another 1500 or so from Cabelas when it was on sale. I have another 10/22 about half done right now, and I'm not sure if I want to build another paper puncher or just do a fun light weight plinker...leaning towards the later because they are so much fun to shoot.

I've seen a couple AR barrels that were destroyed by shooting nothing but Wolf.


But if its just some kind of cheap rifle or whatever, by all means, go for it. I shoot Wolf through my SKS.
I had a couple boxes I've shot through but I wasn't impressed with its performance at all. I had to change out the spring and piston combination in the butt stock to get it to fire right. I've been shooting fiocchi or however you spell it lately.

I've been keeping my brass because I've been debating on reloading it lately. I figure if I can do it and keep 200+ rounds in reserve I should be ok.
